The tech hearing is delayed 30 minutes.
The committee just sent out a note that the hearing start is now delayed to 1pm. There is also a rumor that Jordan now plans to appear & kick off the hearing with lots of procedural motions to create delay. The show may not really get going until 2 or so. 🤷🏼‍♂️
If I were Chair of a subcommittee doing a hearing with the #BigTechBarons, I'd require them to use this as a green screen
We're live! @LinaMKhan cameo!
Hey @ratemyskyperoom going to need you to weigh in here, pronto. #BigTechHearing
.@davidcicilline opens up with a question to Pichai citing @celebnetworth story. Check out @adrjeffries piece on this… also check her story yesterday in @themarkup #BigTechHearing
Here's the episode @davidcicilline was referring to. This was written by FTC staff investigating it at the time. #BigTechHearing. The docs came out after FTC inadvertently released every other page of their confidential memo in response to a FOIA request.…
This is incredible. Bipartisan. We've come a long way from Schumer/Schmidt 2011 #BigTechHearing
Based on this exchange, it seems like Google CEO Sundar Pichai *really* does not want to answer questions about local search. Perhaps because there are no good answers? 😬
At the 3 hour mark of #BigTechHearing/#BigTechBarons, here is question count broken out by CEO and party (h/t @natpurser)


Generally speaking, I'm surprised and encouraged. This is a productive hearing.
Great that @RepMGS brought up Larry Page. He's still the most powerful person at Alphabet/Google and he should be a part of this hearing. @davidcicilline told @reckless he agreed a few weeks ago. #BigTechHearing
I may be biased but I think Bezos is doing pretty well & is coming across as the most relaxed/human. <ducks>
Hi @RepGregSteube it appears Mr. Pichai may have purjered himself in response to your last question.
Sundar correcting himself after the fact reminds me of this 2011 cleanup after Eric Schmidt lied to Congress by claiming Google didn’t create a competing Yelp clone in the form of an undeletable app. #BigTechHearing
🚨 It looks like the internal company documents which informed much of the Google questioning are officially in the public domain 🚨…
This was the final tally @NatPurser and I got on Qs by CEO/party

In total, according to the back-of-envelope tracking, Democratic Members of the Antitrust Subcommittee asked 143 questions while the Republicans only asked 61. #BigTechHearing
