"But the people were Pro-Trump!" the President continued tweeting.

Ever since the first inkling of news broke past year that Russian Federation may be trying to help Trump get elected, Donald Trump has not only been denying such allegations, but has even turned the allegations around, claiming that Clinton, not himself, was the true beneficiary of such actions. Facebook confirmed it had received the Senate invitation, Twitter declined to comment and Google did not respond to a request for comment.

Richard Allan, Facebook's vice president of public policy for Europe, Middle East Africa, said the Silicon Valley-based company mounted an array of efforts to ensure the social media network was not used as a platform to manipulate public opinion.

US officials investigating Russia's alleged attempt to interfere in the election are now looking into such adverts.

In his Facebook post, Zuckerberg said Facebook gave more people a voice in the 2016 election.

Moscow has denied any collusion.

Trump accused Facebook and The New York Times for conspiring against him. "Collusion?" Mr Trump wrote in a tweet that followed the release of campaign ads. 'Did they geo-target both geographically and by demographics in ways that at least at first blush appear pretty sophisticated?' "We'll keep working to ensure the integrity of free and fair elections around the world, and to ensure our community is a platform for all ideas and force for good in democracy", he concluded. The company's representatives will likely face questions about the spread of false news stories and propaganda through the use of fake accounts and automated bot networks. Gizmodo reported that Facebook shelved an anti-fake news update to its News Feed during the election for fear of provoking Republican backlash against the platform. "This is too important an issue to be dismissive".

Earlier this month Facebook disclosed a Russian company affiliated with the the Kremlin had purchased more than $100,000 in political advertisements on controversial issues like immigration and gay rights.

Facebook has been in the news quite a bit the past few weeks under suspicion that the social media giant didn't do enough to prevent foreign nationals from interfering with the USA elections thanks to shadow advertising - a process that is quite illegal in the US.
