The Senate Commercial Committee asked to be briefed on the incident, and Senator Josh Hawley sent a personal letter to CEO Jack Dorsey expressing concern and demanding a detailed explanation. Until Dorsey received a mandatory Senate summons to testify.
“A successful attack on your system’s servers poses a threat to the privacy and security of all users’ data,” Hawley wrote..
