Can Twitter, Google and Facebook avoid being biased against conservative views?

Twitter's Jack Dorsey left and Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg

Referring to such companies, which include Facebook Inc and Twitter Inc, Trump told the conservative news outlet in an interview conducted on Tuesday that "I think they already have" interfered in the November 6 election. Instead, a spokesperson for the committee said they may just leave a chair empty next to Sandberg and Dorsey.

Over the a year ago, Facebook and Twitter have each launched public campaigns (and some not so public) to fight back against "inauthentic" accounts believed to be linked not only to Russian Federation, but to other malicious actors like Iran.

"We were too slow to spot this and too slow to act", Sandberg will say.

"That's on us", she wrote.

"This interference was completely unacceptable. It violated the values of our company and of the country we love".

Jones peddles fake news, and is behind the promotion of horrific and damaging stories, including his repeated claim that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, in which 20 young children and six school officials were murdered, was a "false flag" operation - a hoax - and child actors were used. Mark Zuckerberg, the company's founder and CEO, faced tough questioning on the platform's internal practices when he testified before Congress in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica data breach scandal.

Twitter isn't biased for or against any type of partisan but is working on ways to raise the level of debate on its platform, the company's CEO will tell a Senate hearing in Washington, D.C., today.

Bezos, Amazon, and the Bezos owned Washington Post have become frequent targets of criticism from President Donald Trump. Bezos' riches have largely come through his ownership of 16.3% of Amazon's outstanding stock.

"The actions we've taken in response. show our determination to do everything we can to stop this kind of interference from happening", Sandberg said.

A spokesperson for Twitter declined to comment, but in past hearings Twitter officials have affirmed the gravity of the situation.

"Clearly this problem is not going away; I'm not even sure it's trending in the right direction", Burr said of the threat to USA elections from foreign influence operations on social media platforms. "The abuse of our platform to attempt state-sponsored manipulation of elections is a new challenge for us and one we are determined to meet".

The companies have made many policy changes, and have caught and banned malicious accounts over the past year.

The Twitter CEO will also make a solo appearance before the House Energy and Commerce Committee, where Dorsey is expected to face tough questioning on allegations that the social platform has suppressed conservative voices. "We believe strongly in being impartial, and we strive to enforce our rules impartially".
