Source: House panel considers subpoena for Twitter CEO

Source: Politico

Staff of the House Energy and Commerce Committee raised the possibility of a subpoena to get Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to testify before the panel, during a tense meeting with representatives of the company Thursday, according to a Republican source familiar with the discussion.

The source said Twitter is "delaying" and "stonewalling" the committee, which has been negotiating over the past few weeks to try to arrange Dorsey's testimony about the company's data and content policies.

House E&C Chairman Greg Walden later tweeted at Dorsey: "I appreciate your willingness to speak publicly on issues facing Twitter and agree complex algorithms must be better communicated to consumers. After many good faith efforts from staff, this is your formal invitation to appear before @HouseCommerce on Sept. 5."

Asked for comment, a Twitter spokesman responded: "We remain in discussions with the Committee and no decisions have been made either way."

1. Interesting

I had thought he had come in but looking back, the lawyers for Facebook, Google, and Twitter originally testified, then I remember when Zuckerberg came back and testified, but now realize that Dorsey hasn't done the same.

Probably as much or worse than Facebook, twitter was literally drowning in bots promoting fake crap.
