According to reports, Facebook and twitter CEOs will attend a hearing in the U.S. Congress on Tuesday local time to defend the content censorship practices of their websites.Earlier, Republicans had accused the two social media of censoring conservative statements. Last month, the New York Post, a conservative "Pro president trump" media, published a "heavy in-depth" report, saying it had obtained evidence of corruption by Trump's presidential rival Biden and his son, hunt.
Both Facebook and twitter later "blocked" the report, which was denounced as "censorship" by trump and conservatives.
On 22 October, the United States Senate Judicial Committee voted to issue subpoenas to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey (Jack Dorsey) and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg) for attendance at the hearing.
On 28 October, Zuckerberg, Dorsey, and Google CEO Sandal Pichai (Sundar Pichai) also attended a hearing on article 230 of the Communications Norms Act held by the Senate Commerce Committee. At the time, Republican lawmakers questioned the companies' content review decisions at the hearing, but the hearing quickly turned into a political scuffle, with lawmakers attacking each other.
