Twitter lawyer to testifyTwitter will send its acting general counsel to testify before the House and Senate Intelligence committees in hearings regarding Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to a company spokesperson.

Twitter's Sean Edgett will join Facebook’s general counsel, Colin Stretch, who is also set to testify at both hearings on Nov. 1, the social media giant said on Thursday.

Google, which was also invited to the hearing, has not yet commented on if it will send a representative to testify. Lawmakers, however, have said that they expect all three companies to attend.

The top Democrats on the House and Senate Intelligence committees, Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.) and Sen. Mark Warner (Va.), respectively, have spoken positively about Facebook’s improved cooperation with their investigation but have been less favorable to Twitter.
