The ranking Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee says a closed-door presentation by executives from social media giant Twitter was "deeply disappointing."

Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia says the information Twitter shared with committee staff was "frankly inadequate on almost every level." He also says the company appeared to not appreciate the seriousness of his panel's investigation into Russian election interference.

Warner says he wants the company to provide more information to his committee. The panel is probing how Twitter and Facebook were used by Russians to spread misinformation and propaganda during the 2016 presidential election.

The scrutiny of the social media networks is part of the committee's larger probe into Russian election interference and whether there was any coordination with Trump associates.
