Dorsey acknowledged Twitter had made mistakes and said they corrected them. The paper also says Dorsey intervened to allow white supremacist Richard Spencer to be reinstated on Twitter.

Trump told the conservative outlet in an interview conducted on Tuesday that "I think they already have" interfered in the November 6 election.

Top Twitter Inc and Facebook Inc executives will defend their companies before USA lawmakers on Wednesday, with Facebook insisting it takes election interference seriously and Twitter denying its operations are influenced by politics. The report gave no other details.

"As I previously announced in this committee, I am soon introducing legislation to direct the Department of Commerce to convene a working group of stakeholders to develop a consensus-based definition of blockchain", she said prior to asking Dorsey about the social media firm's work with the technology. Thirteen Russians were indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller earlier this year on charges of an elaborate plot to disrupt the 2016 US presidential election by creating fake accounts that pushed divisive issues on social media.

The companies have conveyed to the commission that all sponsored content in favour of a political party, political leader or candidate will flag the concerned sponsor and the amount paid for posting the content on Facebook, WhatsApp (owned by Facebook), Google or Twitter.

Moscow denies involvement, and Trump - backed by some of his fellow Republicans in Congress - has repeatedly dismissed investigations of the issue as a partisan witch hunt or hoax.

Only after CNN highlighted several tweets that clearly violated Twitter's TOS did the social media platform suspend Jones - and only for one week.

The testimony comes as some Republicans say conservatives have been censored on social media. Some Republicans, including President Donald Trump, have pushed the idea that Twitter is "shadow banning" some in the GOP because of the ways search results have appeared. Republicans control both the House and Senate and the elections will decide whether they keep their majorities. Chief election commissioner O P Rawat told TOI that "EC's interactions with the three social media companies are complete".

Another Trump loyalist granted immunity as prosecutors close in on Trump business
The Manafort charges stem nearly completely from his personal businesses but they came to light after he went to work for Trump . Similarly, Trump flipped from fury that Cohen's offices were raided to claiming that he and Cohen were never all that close.

Many senators expressed anger at Google, which was represented in the hearing room by an empty chair next to Sandberg. Google offered another executive instead, and the committee said no.

Google did release written "testimony" from Walker ahead of the hearing, even though he was not expected to appear.

In recent weeks Facebook has revealed the existence of multiple influence operations meant to influence politics in a manner similar to Russia's 2016 intervention, aimed at the United States, as well as other countries around the world.
