Another Senate committee subpoenaed Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday voted along party lines to authorize subpoenas for Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg to testify about alleged anti-conservative political bias on their platforms.

This is the second time in as many weeks that senators have subpoenaed the tech executives. Dorsey, Zuckerberg and Sundar Pichai are already set to testify before the Senate Commerce Committee about Section 230 and content moderation next week. There was some conversation about combining that hearing with the political bias one, but it appears more likely they will be separated.

It's yet to be seen whether Dorsey and Zuckerberg will agree to testify voluntarily or if the committee will actually serve the subpoenas.
