CO to testify is to be determinate. Although Zuckerberg reject British lawmakers’ invitations to explain to a British parliamentary committee what went wrong.
Zuckerberg is invited as well to testify on April 10 hearing on data privacy to The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee along with the CEOs of Alphabet Inc. and Twitter Inc.
