(l-r) Monika Bickert, head of Product Policy and Counterterrorism with Facebook; Juniper Downs, global head of public policy and government relations with Google’s YouTube; and Carlos Monje Jr., director of public policy and philanthropy with Twitter, testify before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation during a hearing titled “Terrorism and Social Media: #IsBigTechDoingEnough?,” on Jan. 17, 2018.

On Wednesday in the nation’s Capitol, Twitter Inc., Facebook Inc. and Google were once again grilled by lawmakers about content on their respective sites. While representatives from these three tech behemoths previously fielded questions about Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election before Congress, this latest hearing took a broader look at extremist propaganda on social media.
