According to The Hill, at 9:38 PM ET, Volvo tweeted they were going to step away from advertising with Sean Hannity, then that tweet was deleted.
Here is the deleted tweet:
We have spoken with our media agency and have advised them to cease advertising on the show.

It no longer appears on their Twitter timeline so you have wonder what is going on and if they are going to pull their ads. They could be hiding so they don’t receive the same backlash Keurig received over the weekend. (Related – Keurig Sees Too Many Products Destroyed; Releases Statement To Public)
They will probably say they were hacked or some disgruntled employee got their hands on the company Twitter account and tweeted it but it was removed.

Volvo is the latest advertiser to pull its ads from “Hannity” in the wake of the prime-time host’s coverage of Moore, the Alabama Senate special election candidate accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women. Keurig and Realtor.com both said they were pulling their ads in recent days.
None of the advertisers said they were pulling their ads because of Hannity’s coverage of the allegations, including from a woman who says she was 14 at the time. However, the decisions come amid an online campaign targeting advertisers for Hannity’s show.
Hannity said on his show Thursday that viewers shouldn’t rush to judgement against Moore.
“Every single person in this country deserves the presumption of innocence,” Hannity said. “With the allegations against Judge Moore, none of us know the truth of what happened 38 years ago. The only people that would know are the people involved in this incident.”
The Fox News host added that Moore “should step aside and leave the Senate race” if the allegations are true.
Hannity has not picked a side in this Moore story. He did interview him and remains neutral but then shouldn’t everyone until proof has been laid out?
Whether or not Volvo was serious with their tweet, it appeared on their Twitter timeline so sooner or later, they will make a statement.
