The CEOs of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google have committed to testifying before the House Judiciary Committee as part of its ongoing antitrust inquiry, which will mark the first time the four tech bigwigs have appeared together before Congress, Fox News has confirmed.
Twitter was notably absent from the list of witnesses who will appear before the Democratic-controlled House. President Trump recently signed an executive order that could eliminate some legal protections for Twitter, after the company began censoring the president's posts.
