Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to testify in a second congressional hearing next week, this time in the Senate.

Zuckerberg will appear at a rare joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees on April 10.

Earlier Wednesday, the House Energy and Commerce Committee announced that Zuckerberg would be testifying at a hearing on April 11.

Lawmakers have called for Zuckerberg to appear personally after revelations that Cambridge Analytica, a Trump-linked political consulting firm, obtained data of tens of millions of users without their permission with the intent of swaying elections. The company has also been under scrutiny after Russians used Facebook and other social media to meddle in the 2016 elections.

Zuckerberg will be the only witness at the hearing.
