Politico: Twitter and Facebook CEOs may appear in US hearing on disinformation

According to the newspaper, representatives of the companies may testify before the US House of Representatives in March

Representatives of Facebook and Twitter may testify in the US House of Representatives in March about how their namesake social networks are fighting the spread of dangerous information. This was reported by Politico newspaper on Friday.

According to its sources, the matter concerns the hearing in the Energy and Commerce Committee. It is examining what Facebook and Twitter administrators are doing to combat the spread of two types of content: misinformation about the coronavirus, particularly from anti-vaccine supporters, and posts describing the violence in the wake of January’s riots at the Capitol. The specific issues to be discussed by the committee are not yet known.

Twitter may be represented by legal affairs supervisor Vijaya Gadde, but the possibility of chief executive Jack Dorsey attending the hearing is also being considered. Questions about Facebook are likely to be answered by Mark Zuckerberg, founder and head of the corporation.
