The 10 best tweets inspired by Mark Zuckerberg's testimony

Mr. Zuckerberg goes to Washington Facebook chief's first day of testimony on Capitol Hill

Zuckerberg said Facebook was hiring dozens more Burmese-language speakers to remove threatening content.

"It's clear now that we didn't do enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm".

On Tuesday, Zuckerberg sparred with a joint hearing of the Senate's Judiciary and Commerce committees. "It was a big mistake".

An example would be if someone were discussing lawn mowers near their phone, then suddenly started seeing lawn mower ads in their Facebook news feed.

During the hearing, he fielded questions on Facebook's data collection practices, the company's alleged monopoly power and his views on regulating internet companies.

During Tuesday's hearing, 44 senators will each have four minutes to question the embattled face of Facebook.

Perhaps the most memorable line of the afternoon came from Sen. And the enormous complexity of the social network he created at times defeated the attempts of legislators to hammer him on Facebook's specific failures and how to fix them. Your user agreement sucks. "It's not to inform your users about their rights. I'm going to suggest to you that you go back home and rewrite it".

Investors were impressed with his performance.

Facebook shares turned positive after earlier falls on Wednesday.

In an awkward exchange with Rep. Diana DeGette of Colorado, Zuckerberg said he did not know the details of two class-action lawsuits that Facebook had settled over privacy concerns related to data gathering techniques it has since changed.

As Kennedy said, Congress may soon try to change Facebook's business with "a whole bunch of bills". Still, it is notable that Zuckerberg confirmed the company's cooperation with Mueller's team.

Zuckerberg replied: "I consider us to be a technology company because the primary thing that we do is have engineers that write code and build products and services for other people".

Lujan: Do you know how many points of data Facebook has on the average non-Facebook user? This is familiar terrain for most Facebook users, barring the very geriatric.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is telling USA lawmakers during his testimony on the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal that his Facebook data was included in the personal information sold to "malicious third parties".

The data scandal wiped away tens of billions of dollars from Facebook's market value, prompted political scrutiny on both sides of the Atlantic and even raised the once unthinkable question of whether Zuckerberg should step down as CEO. It also reignited long simmering concerns about Facebook's impact on the world's privacy, civil discourse and domestic institutions.

During Zuckerberg's second day of questioning on Capitol Hill, California Democratic Representative Anna Eshoo asked, "Was your personal data included in the CA breach?" Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, that "I'm not the type of person who thinks that all regulation is bad". It speaks to the responsibility that Facebook has historically felt regarding policing content on its platform - or, more accurately, the lack thereof. Theoretically, it would want about the same to offer the service ad-free.

"My Facebook feed always has someone's quiz results or game scores".

"We've seen the apology tours before", said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat from CT.

Representative Greg Walden of OR, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, also said Wednesday that the panel intended "to widen our lens to larger questions about the fundamental relationship between tech companies and their users".

With 1.3 million followers on Facebook, Diamond and Silk are a North Carolina-based pair of sisters who grew a substantial conservative fanbase thanks to their charismatic videos supporting President Donald Trump. Zuckerberg, once press shy, also launched an apology tour as part of a rare media blitz. Zuckerberg plans to be contrite in his appearances before lawmakers.

BEN RAY LUJAN: Facebook has detailed profiles on people who have never signed up for Facebook - yes or no? "He's a smart guy".
