Good morning, I will be watching today’s House Financial Services hearing with Mark Zuckerberg at 10am EST today.

Follow for live tweets if you’re interested.

Almost ready folks. #FacebookHearing
One last chat with the handlers and lawyers #FacebookHearing
"On diversity and inclusion, diversity has utterly failed. Facebook's executive ranks & workforce continue to be mostly white and male." --@RepMaxineWaters
Zuckerberg says it is a “very small percentage” of revenue that Facebook gets from ads. This repeats what Sandberg said yesterday.

If it’s so small, why aren’t they leading with the actual %?

Trump alone has spent $13.4 million in ads since Jan


Good point from Chair Waters— Facebook initially banned crypto ads. Then they reversed, bought a blockchain company, launched Libra
Wow this has to be a bingo of some kind — GOP Rep Anne Wagner is bragging about SESTA/FOSTA, arguing that Facebook needs to reject end to end encryption to fight trafficking “what is going to happen to these children?” #FacebookHearing

@onekade @melissagira
Kind of wild that even the GOP Reps seem to feel the need to yell at Zuckerberg today in the #Libra #FacebookHearing
"Have you learned that you should not lie?" --@NydiaVelazquez to @Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg

#BigTechTakeover #ZuckBucl #Libra
Even Republican Anne Wagner is shredding Zuckerberg, reading to h the insanely long list of companies who have now dropped out of #Libra
#FacebookHearing #ZuckBuck
But most Republicans questioning of Zuckerberg amounts to “do you think the Democrats are being so mean to you?????” #ZuckBuck #Libra
Zuckerberg keeps trying to have it both ways. Tells @RepPerlmutter “we are not a bank” but in his opening statement, talked about wanting to help the underbanked

#ZuckBuck #bigtechtakeover
@RepPerlmutter Rep Loudermilk compares Zucerkberg to Trump. He means it as a compliment.

@RepPerlmutter "Everyone has talked to you about your scholarly resume... did you review the packet that was sent you from the Committee? Obviously that's a no." --@RepBeatty 1/2

#LibraInDC #Libra #ZuckBuck
@RepPerlmutter @RepBeatty @RepBeatty just made Zuckerberg look CLOWNISHLY unprepared

“Do you know who the firm that you employ for civil rights is? [No] How could you not know? You've employed the largest civil rights firm!

It's almost like you think this is a joke" #LibraInDC
@RepPerlmutter @RepBeatty @RashidaTlaib notes advocacy groups have been pleading with you to stop letting Hate Groups use the Events page.

She asks Zuckerberg to evaluate a photo of an armed man intimidating people outside a mosque. He won't.

"It’s hate speech; it’s leading to threats in my office"
@RepPerlmutter @RepBeatty @RashidaTlaib @RepKatiePorter asked Zuckerberg he'd be willing to spend one hour a day of being a content monitor, watching murders and other horrors. He isn't. #LibraInDC
And here is @RepKatiePorter annihilating Zuckerberg over his own privacy policy — and how it stands in conflict with what his own lawyers are arguing in federal court, as they try and dodge claims of injury following their data breach:
@RepKatiePorter "So you WILL take down lies or you WON'T take down lies?"

@AOC runs Zuckerberg through a series of hypothetical ads she could run with lies in them, and he can't say if they'd stay up.
@RepKatiePorter @AOC @AOC continues to hammer Zuckerberg till she runs out of time.

"In your ongoing dinner parties with far-right figures, some of who advance the conspiracy theory that white supremacy is a joke did you discuss so-called media bias against conservatives?"

Zuck: <filibusters>
