Senate Grills CEOs of Twitter and Facebook: Dorsey ‘Admits Wrongdoing’

Senate Judiciary Committee held another hearing with Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, and Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook. Senate Republicans accused both CEOs of censoring the New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s financial dealings.

Jack Dorsey explained that Twitter blocked the distribution of the Post article pursuant to a 2018 internal policy that prevents the dissemination of hacked materials.

But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) did not buy Dorsey’s explanation.

“That to me seems like you’re the ultimate editor. The editorial decision by the New York Post to run the story was overridden by Twitter and Facebook in different fashions to prevent its dissemination. Now if that’s not making an editorial decision I don’t know what would be,” said Sen. Graham at the hearing.

Dorsey acknowledged the problem with their policy and the action that blocked the Post article. He also proposed that Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act be expanded and that social media companies be allowed to self-regulate.
