Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey will appear before Congressional leaders as early as September 5th confirmed the House Energy and Commerce Committee; likely facing tough questions over the platforms method of “shadow banning” conservative voices.

“CONFIRMED: Twitter CEO @jack Dorsey will testify September 5 before E&C on the company’s algorithms and content monitoring,” wrote the Committee’s official Twitter account.

“Shadow Banning” is the practice of “hiding” content on social media without the author’s knowledge or consent: effectively limiting their reach for millions of followers.
