The House Intelligence Committee held a virtual hearing with executives from Facebook, Twitter and Google to discuss foreign influence and cyber security in the lead-up to the 2020 elections. The witnesses discussed ways their platforms were working to combat the spread of disinformation and hate speech, as well as improvements they’ve made since the 2016 presidential election. Twitter’s Global Public Policy Director Nick Pickles warned of changing tactics and state actors in China, Russia, and Iran, who may take advantage of current divisions in the United States. Lawmakers expressed concern about the lack of civil discourse and the ease at which misinformation is spread on social media. Facebook’s Head of Cyber Security Policy Nathaniel Gleicher also addressed his company’s recent decision to remove an ad for President Trump which included a Nazi symbol. close
