The Best Tweets & Memes from Mark Zuckerberg’s Testimony Before Congress (So Far)
Mark Zuckerberg testified before Congress on Tuesday in response to the increasingly damning Cambridge Analytica data scandal that compromised the Facebook profile information of 87 million users. Calling the testimony uncomfortable would be an understatement. Zuckerberg appeared to squirm, drank lots of water, grimaced, and stared blankly into the flashing cameras -- and generally fueled speculation that he is a robot with bangs. Zuckerberg's second day of testimony is on Wednesday, and will probably produce similar results.
Twitter ran wild with it all, and produced many jokes and memes that we now present for your enjoyment. Here's a running list of some of the best:
