Republicans pressed Twitter Inc.’ s Jack Dorsey for what they said may be the “shadow-banning” of conservatives, as the social network’s chief executive officer testified at the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

“We and the American people want to be reassured” about Twitter’s polices and “better understand how Twitter decides when to suspend a user or ban them” and how the company does it "without undue bias,” Republican Representative Greg Walden, the committee’s chairman, said in opening the hearing Wednesday.
