The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote next week on whether to subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey after the company blocked a New York Post story on Joe Biden. Twitter said the article violated its rules on doxxing and hacked materials, as it contained images with “personal and private information — like email addresses and phone numbers.” Facebook also limited the spread of the report.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who accused Twitter and Facebook of “actively interfering in this election,” told reporters the committee will decide on Tuesday if it will subpoena Dorsey. Committee member Cruz also sent a letter to the Twitter CEO demanding answers over the company’s decision.
