The CEOs of Alphabet Inc, Facebook Inc. and Twitter have all agreed to appear before the US Senate Commerce Committee for a hearing on October 28, Politico reported citing committee aides.

Chief Executive Officer of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg (pictured) will testify alongside Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai, and Twitter's Jack Dorsey over Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act which allows companies to moderate content and protects them from lawsuits regarding user's posts.

Back in July, the heads of Facebook, Google, as well as Amazon.com Inc. and Apple Inc. offered their testimonies as part of the lower house' antitrust probe, marking the first time the heads of the four biggest tech firm giants appeared before Congress.
