Twitter briefing to U.S. congressional investigators disappointing: Senator Warner

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Mark Warner, top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, said on Thursday he was deeply disappointed by the lack of information Twitter (TWTR.N) provided at a briefing for congressional investigators probing Russian interference in the U.S. election.

He said the Twitter briefing was mostly derivative of a presentation earlier this month given by Facebook (FB.O) and lacked thoroughness. “Their response was, frankly, inadequate on almost every level,” Warner told reporters.
