The heads of Facebook and Twitter have conceded to the US Senate omissions in dealing with the alleged Russian manipulation. Now you do a lot.

Twitter and Facebook:   We were too slow

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".

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."

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.
