Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is taking a shot at Silicon Valley by delivering a punch at the very center of its being.

As The Independent pointed out, Warren is the star of a new billboard in San Francisco — the home of countless tech workers and executives, not to mention companies — that is highly critical of the industry.

"BREAK UP BIG TECH," the billboard reads. Above that is Warren's name and to the left is a photo of her. The billboard also calls on people to send a text message to a number "TO JOIN OUR FIGHT."

Warren said in March she intends to break up some of the nation's big technology companies. She would like to see small businesses thrive instead of larger corporations.

"Today's big tech companies have too much power. They've bulldozed competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field against everyone else," the campaign told The Independent.

"And in the process, they have hurt small businesses and stifled innovation. Elizabeth's plan would help ensure tech giants do not crowd out potential competitors, smother the next generation of great tech companies, and wield so much power that they can undermine our democracy."

Warren announced her candidacy for president in February. She consistently tries to champion small businesses and average Americans and advocates for higher taxes on the wealthy.
