House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy is demanding answers from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey after repeated allegations the social network “hid” or “censored” material from prominent conservatives and Republicans.

McCarthy officially requested a public committee hearing with Dorsey after recent revelations that the platform engaged in “shadow banning,” the practice of hiding or banning tweets without the author’s knowledge.

“Recently we learned that Twitter limited the visibility of certain conservative accounts, so that some of their tweets did not appear in searches and their accounts were more difficult to find through the search feature,” McCarthy wrote. “This ‘shadow ban’ made it harder for users to get information about certain public officials—or even to learn that their social media presence existed.”

“Twitter ultimately implemented a change to stop penalizing conservatives, but serious questions remain about how and why the company filters content on its platform,” McCarthy added.
