While trying to abstain from the scandal surrounding Cambridge Analytica, which gathered and used the personal data of millions of Facebook users to allegedly influence the results of the 2016 US presidential election, Steve Bannon threw out a shocking revelation.

Steve Bannon, former chief strategist and presidential adviser and vice president of the controversial Cambridge Analytica, has said in his recent speech that "Facebook data is for sale all over the world" and he had nothing to do with the company's acquisition of illegally obtained data. The phrase didn't go unnoticed by the Twitter users.

Some twitterians, however, were not surprised by the news and reminded that it was not the first US election where such data had been used.

Earlier in March, Facebook faced public outrage as information from a whistleblower surfaced that a third party company, Cambridge Analytica which is tied to Steve Bannon, acquired its user data. According to the informant, the company used it to build a model predicting voter's behavior during US Presidential election in order to influence it. The company worked for Trump's team in 2016.
