Senators Promise Tech CEOs Will Return For More Testimony As Tuesday Hearing Ends

Tuesday's hearing has officially concluded after Zuck and Dorsey took once final grilling from Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn, who accused the companies of acting like "the gods of silicon valley". She also raised questions about the company's business ties with foreign countries, and its willingness to bow to Beijing and Vietnam over repressing political dissent on Facebook. She also accused Facebook of removing information posted by Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who recently claimed to have been poisoned by the Kremlin.

Finally, chairman Lindsey Graham and ranking member Blumenthal wrapped things up by promising that the tech CEOs would likely return shortly after the start of the next Congress as the "collaborate" on potential reforms to Section 230. However, next time, the senators warned, their fellow tech CEOs must also make time to appear, Graham and Blumenthal said.
