Facebook and Twitter have acknowledged inadequately to have been prepared for alleged attempts by Russian influence on US presidential elections 2016. "We were too slow to notice this, and have acted too slowly," said Facebook boss Sheryl Sandberg in front of intelligence committee in U.S. Senate. Even Twitter boss Jack Dorsey said that y had been "unprepared and poorly equipped".
Both secured steps to get problem under control. Twitter identifies eight to ten million suspicious accounts every week, Dorsey said. Sandberg pointed out that Facebook has recently doubled number of employees in security area. It is also targeted against false news and hatred. "We deleted hundreds of pages and user accounts, Dieunglaubwürdig worked."

The Russian government has repeatedly rejected accusations.Dorsey negates political manipulation
The hearing also raised alleged manipulation of public debate in US through social networks. The US president and or Republicans had last claimed that conservative voices would be disadvantaged by platforms. "Google and Twitter and Facebook – y really go on very, very difficult terrain, and y have to be on guard," Trump had warned.

Republican Senator Richard Burr was dissatisfied after hearing. Crucial problems had not been overcome, said Burr, who chairs Senate Intelligence Committee. Neir Twitter nor Facebook, nor Google would have been convincingly concerned with denRisiken and threats to national security.
In addition to Sandberg and Dorsey, a board member from Google was also invited to hearing. Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, had knocked out DieEinladung of Senate. His place remained empty.
