Interestingly enough we head to another US Congress hearing (Sept 26, 2018) focused on how companies use commercially personal data and in addition to the usual suspects invited to testify (Facebook, Google and Twitter) we now have newcomers (Amazon , AT&T and Apple) also invited to explain how they collect and use people data.

Will Congress starts looking at privacy under a different angle (anti-trust may be) when considering the high concentration of data held by these companies?
