CEO’s from Twitter, Facebook, and Alphabet, Google’s parent company, testified before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation committee on social media regulations and the 2020 election.

Overall, both Republicans and Democrats agree that social media companies need greater regulation. The three men have appeared before Congress this year for hearing on anti-trust regulation and section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects tech companies from legal liability when moderating media on their platforms.

[Slide One] Senator John Thune (R-SD) asked the three CEO’s individually, “Are you the ref,” over political political speech.

[Slide Two] Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) said, “The issue is not that the companies before us today are taking too many posts down. The issue is that they’re leaving too many dangerous posts up.” Sen. Markey then asked Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg if the company would “commit, that if the president goes on Facebook and encourages violence after election results are announced, that you will make sure your company’s algorithms don’t spread that content and you will immediately remove those messages?”

[Slide Three]
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) asked Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, “Does Twitter have the ability to influence elections?”
