Senators blast Google for no-show on Capitol Hill

The Senate Intelligence Committee's hearing on foreign use of social media to influence US politics began Wednesday morning with two of the big tech companies that senators wanted to hear from present -- and one empty chair.

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey are in the room and testifying. Google had offered to send Kent Walker, its senior vice president of global affairs, but the committee declined, saying it wanted someone more senior. Google did not offer anyone. So next to Sandberg and Dorsey is an empty chair, with a placecard for Google.

Thus the danger of big tech. That shouldn't piss off Republicans though. After all corporations should be able to do whatever they want.
