Facebook's Sandberg Knocks Twitter for Blocking Blackburn Ad

Congressional sources said this week that Facebook Inc (FB.O) has been slow to cooperate.

Speaking with Axios, Sandberg said Facebook supports releasing the ads and information about who they targeted.

On visits to Capitol Hill on Wednesday and Thursday, Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's chief operating officer, met with leaders of the House Intelligence Committee and said the company wanted to help investigators and would turn over more information. The social media platform says that Russia-linked groups spent about $150,000 on political ads, including some promotions that mentioned either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton by name. Facebook says these ads focused on divisive political issues, such as immigration and gun rights, in an apparent attempt to sow discord among the USA population.

The Russian won the opening set after a brief struggle, suffering her only break of serve in the second game of the second set. She saw off 71st-ranked Linette in just over 98 minutes to reach only her second quarter-final since her return to action.

"Things happened on our platform in this election that should not have happened", Sandberg said.

Business Insider said Britain was already considering regulations that would treat Facebook more like a media company.

Later Thursday, Sandberg met privately with members of the Congressional Black Caucus, where she was pressed on what the company is doing in response to its discovery that numerous ads pushed by Russian-linked accounts were aimed at sowing racial discord. "Any time there is abuse on our platform, it troubles us". Mr Schiff noted that it is unlikely that the ads will be released before tech executives testify before Congress in November.

The Honor 6C Pro is now exclusive to Russian Federation and is expected to make its way to other European countries soon. Talking about the display, the Honor 6C pro will feature a 5.2-inch HD display with a resolution of 720 X 1280 pixels.

Twitter engineers are trying to regenerate some of the lost data, and may be able to retrieve some of it, said a person familiar with the company's technology. Congress is also investigating Russia-linked ads on Twitter and Google. Several congressional committees, as well as special counsel Robert Mueller, are investigating Russian interference, including any potential collusion between Trump associates and Moscow.

"Facebook owes the American people an apology". USA officials have called it a "troll factory" that creates false identities or copies real ones to spread real, skewed, and fake information for the Kremlin.

Facebook has admitted it shouldn't have allowed fake Russian accounts to fund ads supporting Trump in the U.S. election and will do everything in its power to help authorities get to the bottom of the alleged election interference campaign.

One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.

"We're going to give them the material they want", she said.
