40+ Perfect Reactions To Mark Zuckerberg’s Congress Testimony That Made Me Kiss My Fingers Like A French Chef

Mark Zuckerberg is in the hot seat. The Facebook founder is fielding questions from dozens of senators in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which revealed millions of Facebook users had their data unwittingly shared with a data analytics company working with the Trump campaign.

Facebook had known about the data sharing for years but did not reveal the extent of the leak until recently.

On Tuesday, Zuckerberg testifies before a joint session of the Senate commerce and judiciary committees, who have questions about Facebook’s role in a variety of other matters; How much of a part did the social network play in influencing the 2016 election, and how much does it know about who pays to show their ads to users?

This grilling of Zuck, though in response to the Cambridge Analytica disaster, may have far-reaching repercussions, possibly helping to usher in a new era of social network accountability, responsibility, and oversight. The days of relying on tech companies to self-regulate may be over, and Zuck’s to blame.

Naturally, Twitter had some thoughts on the matter. People were concerned that octogenarians unfamiliar with Facebook’s business model were tasked with questioning Zuckerberg— specifically citing Senator Orrin Hatch’s confusion as to how Facebook turns a profit despite its services being free.

Also: tweets roasting Zuck about being a non-human, which will never ever get old.
