The founder and head of Twitter Jack Dorsey will answer questions during the meeting of the US Senate Committee on Energy and Trade on September 8. This was reported by the press service of the committee on Twitter.

The committee clarified that the issues will concern the verification and management of content in the social network.

According to the media, Dorsey can also be interrogated in the Intelligence Committee, where they are going to discuss Russia's interference in the election of the US president.

Earlier it was reported that Facebook, Microsoft, Google and Twitter will hold a closed meeting on the eve of US elections. Representatives of the companies intend to correct their mistakes in order not to repeat the situation that occurred induring the presidential election in 2016.

Twitter has suspended two accounts linked with 12 citizens of the Russian Federation for interfering in the US elections, according to Reuters. 

Twitter said on Saturday it had suspended the accounts @DCLeaks_ and @Guccifer_2 that were named in the indictment, which alleges a wide-ranging conspiracy involving sophisticated hacking and staged release of documents.

In a statement on Saturday, a Twitter spokesman said: “The accounts have been suspended for being connected to a network of accounts previously suspended for operating in violation of our rules.”  

Speaking at a cybersecurity conference in Philadelphia on Saturday, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said the indictments proved that the United States “will not tolerate interference with our democratic processes and that there will be consequences for foreign meddling.”

Reportedly, Twitter notified about 1.4 million users about Russian propaganda. These users were spying the accounts linked to the Russian propaganda in the United States during the presidential campaign in 2016.
