At present, the written testimony of the three CEOs has been released in advance, all emphasizing the importance of this clause to freedom of online speech.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey warned that the erosion of the 230 clause foundation would undermine the way people communicate online, leaving the industry with only a few giants and wealthy technology companies.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg) pointed out that without the support of this law, technology companies may be liable for basic audits, such as deleting hate speech.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai (Sundar Pichai) said that Google has no political prejudice when dealing with content and hopes that the Commerce Commission will think twice about revising Section 230 and realize the impact this may have on businesses and consumers.
