Facebook, Google, Twitter and Reddit subpoenaed by January 6 committee investigating Capitol riot

The Metro says The House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021 assault on the US Capitol issued subpoenas Thursday to Google’s parent company Alphabet, Facebook’s parent company Meta, Twitter and Reddit.

The four social media companies have provided ‘inadequate response’ to requests for information and records relating to the efforts to overturn the 2020 election, according to the committee.

Committee Chair Bennie Thompson, a Democrat from Mississippi, wrote in a statement that the committee is looking to understand how the spread of misinformation and violent extremism contributed to the attack on the nation’s Capitol.
