Trump's 'Social Media Summit' Won't Include Facebook, Twitter or YouTube
The White House has scheduled a social media summit for this week, but major platforms won't be there.

Content moderation is one of several areas that lawmakers have signaled an interest in regulating, along with data privacy, antitrust and tax avoidance among major tech companies.
