Facebook Responds to Senator on Twitter - TheStreet

Facebook Inc.'s (FB) - Get Report in hot water. Again.

On Monday, June 4, after a scathing article from The New York Times was released, Facebook tweeted out from its verified account.

The NYT story claims that Facebook, an Action Alerts PLUS Charitable Trust Portfolio holding, allowed phone and device makers to access personal information about the user, which included information about the user's friends. 

Senator Cortez Masto, a democratic senator from Nevada, responded to the NYT's tweet.

Facebook then retweeted Senator Masto's tweet, and went through a series of tweets, explaining itself.
