CT’s stake in the #BuildBackBetter agenda couldn’t be bigger. We need these critical physical & human infrastructure investments so that child care can be more accessible, people can get to work, & our economy can recover. https://t.co/ZNArmxMwlK — PolitiTweet.org

Facebook’s response has been to resist scrutiny, not embrace transparency. It should be vigorously acting to provide parents with firm commitments for dramatic reforms & direct answers instead of casting baseless aspersions on whistleblowers & journalists. 3/ — PolitiTweet.org

No matter what Mark Zuckerberg calls his company, it doesn’t change Facebook’s deceptions, dangers, & harm to kids. That’s why I'm requesting  Zuckerberg publicly testify before my Consumer Protection subcommittee. https://t.co/Np7IQfPZDM — PolitiTweet.org

Facebook/Instagram need to come clean—& disclose all the docs on strategy to lure & hook young teens, despite secretly knowing the dangers to kids. I’m demanding transparency, but so far Zuckerberg has refused & dodged—betraying trust & undermining parents.https://t.co/BzSW0dYbFd — PolitiTweet.org
