There was a hearing party and Facebook, Google, and Twitter were all invited

Big tech CEOs seem to be really popular these days — but for all the wrong reasons! Once again, Facebook’s (FB) Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter’s (TWTR) Jack Dorsey, and Google’s (GOOG) Sundar Pichai were in the hot seat after members of the US House Energy and Commerce Committee summoned them for yet another hearing.
