CNET: Tech giants met with US intelligence officials over midterm elections. “Representatives from Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Oath, Snap and Twitter, met last month with representatives of the US intelligence community to discuss preparations for the midterm elections, The New York Times reported Monday. The meeting, which Facebook confirmed it hosted, was the first discussion between tech companies and intelligence officials on the topic since Russian operatives used social media to sow seeds of discord among Americans during the 2016 election.”
