Executives from Twitter, Facebook, TikTok and other social media companies are due to appear before the Senate Homeland Security Committee. There, they’ll answer questions about social media's impact on security. A former employee of Twitter is due to report on data security failings and nation state agents within the company. Likewise, TikTok executives are due to address accusations that the social media platform is a high security risk to the western world – including the considerable personal data required to sign up. Many have suggested that social media should require more thorough checks to hold them to account for security breaches.
