Summary List Placement Twitter boss Jack Dorsey on Thursday was busted tweeting a saracastic poll during a congressional hearing about misinformation on social media platforms. Lawmakers grilled Dorsey, as well as Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg , about their sites’ handling of vaccine misinformation, election fraud claims, and online extremism. Congress asked the three CEOs to answer “yes or no” to a range of complicated, extensive questions. Lawmakers sometimes interrupted if the CEOs tried to give longer answers. During the hearing, Dorsey took a jab at the tactic by tweeting a poll that was simply a question mark, asking Twitter users to vote “yes” or “no.” Read more: Here are some of the potential future CEOs in big tech, and how much they’re currently paid Democratic Rep. Kathleen Rice picked up on Dorsey’s tweet and asked him: “Mr Dorsey, what is winning, yes or no, on your Twitter account poll?” Dorsey said that “yes” was in the lead. Rice replied: “Hmm, your multitasking skills are quite impressive.” At the time of publication, the poll has more than 97,000 votes.
