Facebook, Google, and Twitter attend a U.S. House testimony on whether these social media titans filter web content for political reasons. These network platforms have undertaken key attempts to improve transparency with minimal discrimination. For instance, Facebook has bent over backwards to placate conservatives in light of the social network giant's recent failure to remove specific pages on conspiracy theories. Google's video channel YouTube rep emphasizes that giving preference to content of one political ideology over another would fundamentally conflict with universal service provision. Twitter's strategists suggest that its primary purpose is to serve key user interactions with neither value judgments nor personal beliefs.

These online platforms then experience sharp stock market gains soon after their congressional clarification. In recent times, Google receives a $5 billion fine over anti-trust abuses in relation to its Android mobile operating system. The European Commission deems that Google has abused its dominant market position with 80% revenue intake in the smart phone market by forcing manufacturers to pre-install Google Search and Chrome. As a result, this unfair practice prevents several other tech firms such as Amazon, Alibaba, HuaWei, and Oppo from being able to find alternative manufacturers for Android mobile devices. Despite this harsh penalty, Google's recent stock market performance remains robust.
