In his testimony before Congress, Mark #Zuckerberg acknowledged that Facebook "didn't do enough to prevent [our] tools from being used for harm."
Sen. Lindsey Graham: “Do you think the average consumer understands what they’re signing up for" on Facebook?

Mark #Zuckerberg: “I don’t think the average person likely reads that whole [terms of service] document … there are different ways we can communicate that.”
1/ Sen. Durbin to #Zuckerberg: “Would you be comfortable sharing the name of the hotel you stayed in last night?”

#Zuckerberg: “Um, no, I would not.”
2/2 Durbin: “If you messaged anyone this week, would you share with us the names of the people you messaged?”

#Zuckerberg: “Senator, no, I wouldn’t choose to do that publicly here.”

Durbin: “I think that may be what this is all about.”
Sen. Schatz points out that Facebook’s terms of service are “about 3200 words with 30 links; one of the links is to your data policy, which is about 2700 words with 22 links.”

“People have no earthly idea what they’re signing up for,” he says. #Zuckerberg
#Zuckerberg says that by the end of this year, Facebook will have more than 20,000 people working on security and content.

1/ We're halfway into one of the most scandal-plagued presidencies ever. But on Fox News, Hillary Clinton is still the villain.

The network can’t stop talking about her — even though nearly two years have passed since the 2016 election.
2/ Since Trump’s inauguration, Fox News has spent far more time covering Clinton than any other cable news channel. It’s not even close:
3/ Whether they’re discussing the Supreme Court, Russian election meddling, immigration, or pretty much any other story, Fox News pundits somehow find a way to paint Hillary Clinton as the bad guy.

The network has shown Clinton’s face more than 2,000 times in recent months.

1/ Having trouble wrapping your head around family separations at the border?

Here’s some context on how families end up in this situation:
2/ It begins with asylum seekers from deadly nations like Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador taking a dangerous journey to the US-Mexico border. bit.ly/2JZyaQk
3/ To get into the US, they could go to a port of entry (like a border checkpoint) and claim asylum, which is legal.

But those ports can’t process asylum seekers quickly and that border officials sometimes refuse them.

1/ Today, President Trump is expected to end America’s involvement in the Iran nuclear deal — and potentially threaten its existence.

It will be one of the most consequential decisions of his presidency.
2/ To understand why this is such a big deal, it helps to start with the basics. What exactly is the #IranDeal?
3/ It’s formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. It stops Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. bit.ly/2FUDPnS

1/ Exactly 50 years after the murder of Martin Luther King Jr., America is still far from his dream. #MLK50
2/ From economic well-being to criminal justice issues, racial inequality is still very real.

Here’s how America has (and hasn’t) changed since that day in 1968.
3/ Black Americans make much less money than their white peers.

1/ It’s hard to predict who will commit a horrifying act like a mass shooting. But there’s often one common thread: domestic violence.
2/ The church shooting that killed 26 people in Sutherland Springs, Texas, is the latest example.
3/ Officials in Texas say the shooting may have been motivated by a domestic dispute. bit.ly/2zf2X9v
