WASHINGTON, DC – House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) announced today that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey will testify before the committee the afternoon of Wednesday, September 5, 2018, regarding Twitter’s algorithms and content monitoring.

“Twitter is an incredibly powerful platform that can change the national conversation in the time it takes a tweet to go viral. When decisions about data and content are made using opaque processes, the American people are right to raise concerns. This committee intends to ask tough questions about how Twitter monitors and polices content, and we look forward to Mr. Dorsey being forthright and transparent regarding the complex processes behind the company’s algorithms and content judgement calls,” said Chairman Walden.
