    This is just a show I’ll be surprised if congress does anything to tone down these social media platforms

    So what happened? Any fines imposed? Did they get arrested? This is another tongue lashing and waste of time. We need to stop paying the salaries of politicians who constantly bark all day and never bite. Just ridiculous and waste of time and money….we have lost our minds.

    why don’t conservatives just leave twitter and Facebook and go make their own social media site?? I mean whenever a democrat or liberal does something that conservatives don’t like they tell them to leave the country so why can’t the same be applied here???

    Twitter blocked The President of the United States of America! That’s the last straw. These monopolies need to be broken.

    What is the point with these hearings? They do not lead anywhere. It makes the evil big tech look bad for a few minuts, but that is it. Then it goes back to nothing has happen and nothing change.

  44. Crispy Chaos Reply

    People in the comment section: Only can come up with things to say about Dorsey’s appearance. What about the subject at hand? Twitter is a privately owned company, it’s not funded by the government or the people’s taxes. When you set up an account you agree to the Terms and Conditions, if you violate them then Twitter can see fit with whatever they want to do. And if you don’t like it well make your own platform. You conservatives snowflakes already have platforms made specifically for you, go use that. Oh wait it’s not as popular because conservatives can’t make decent/good choices.

    Hey, Ted, if really worry about transparency, do something about clearly proven fake news about the election.
    I don’t f care whether the fraud is. But it so much clear that there are so many fake news on Twitter and FB.
    Just go check it yourself.

  59. rod clause Reply

    If they applied the same policy and Rep gets more penalty, then do your homework first.

  78. Juju Beanz Reply

    If 230 is taken away then they can censor more because they would be liable for the content posted on their platforms so all content uploaded would have to be pre screened sand would need approval before being posted to keep them from being sued so you see it would force them to censor more section 230 should be reformed to take protections away if they act as an editor or publisher but should still apply if they stay neutral and respect the first amendment

    Russian lawmakers opened a new front against the internet on Nov 19 by
    announcing plans to block any services deemed to “censor” local media.
    The legislation would grant authorities conditional powers to block
    access to sites such as Youtube, Twitter and  Facebook — either fully or
    partially. Proposing MPs said they had been moved to act following
    complaints about “facts of censorship” from US technology providers.
