Lawmakers ask tech giants to archive potential evidence of Russian war crimes in Ukraine: report
Russia will not intimidate Elon Musk: Former Facebook official
Heritage Foundation tech policy center director Kara Frederick discusses Elon Musk’s overhaul of Twitter on ‘The Evening Edit.’
Four high-ranking House lawmakers sent letters on Thursday to executives of Twitter, YouTube, TikTok, and Facebook's parent company, Meta, asking the social media giants to archive potential evidence of Russian war crimes in Ukraine.
"We are concerned that the automated systems and processes that social media platforms often use to remove graphic and violent posts could lead to the loss of important content that contains evidence of potential human rights violations and war crimes.," the lawmakers wrote in the letter to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
"We therefore request that Meta take steps to preserve content, and the metadata associated with this content, that potentially could provide evidence of war crimes and human rights violations in Ukraine."
