The Russia issue is bubbling up for Silicon Valley again, Axios' David McCabe reports.
What's happening: Senate Intelligence Committee Democrat Mark Warner put Twitter on notice once more on Tuesday after it blew off a deadline to respond to written questions following the big Russia hearing in November. "I’m disappointed in Twitter," he tells Axios.
- Facebook and Google, meanwhile, got their homework in on time.
- Twitter says its answers are coming soon.
What's next: Big Tech is headed back to Capitol Hill for another grilling before the Senate Commerce Committee to talk about extremist content. Representatives for YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, who will appear to testify, include:
- Monika Bickert, Facebook's head of global policy management
- Juniper Downs, YouTube's global head of public policy and government relations
- Carlos Monje, Twitter's director of public policy and philanthropy
Why it matters: The Silicon Valley giants are making execs with intimate knowledge of how their platforms work available for questioning (rather than general counsels who testified in the fall). Expect more tough questions.
