Facebook, Twitter CEOs Witness After US Elections, Senate Panel Says

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee said Friday that the executives of Twitter and Facebook will testify before the November 17 panel about their decision to block stories making allegations about the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

The judiciary committee voted on Thursday to summon the two CEOs.

Executives will testify on allegations of anti-conservative bias, the committee said. The companies were heavily criticized by conservatives for choosing to spread two stories from the New York Post as disinformation.

The CEOs of Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet will testify before the Senate Commerce Committee on October 28 about an important law to protect Internet companies.

Republican President Donald Trump and many Republican lawmakers continued to criticize tech companies for allegedly suppressing conservative voices. Both hearings are aimed at discussing the issue.
