The social media giant spoke about its investigation behind closed doors at a US Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.
Warner also slammed Twitter's explanations of its actions against Russia-linked accounts and suggested the company doesn't understand the seriousness of Congress' investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Twitter points out that it found 22 accounts corresponding to those Facebook found.
The Russian government has been linked to a black activist social media campaign promoted during the 2016 presidential campaign on both Facebook and Twitter, a new report by CNN reveals. Warner went on to say that Twitter's response is "deeply disappointing" and "frankly inadequate on nearly every level". He called Twitter's response to the alleged Russian meddling "inadequate on nearly every level".
Following Facebook's lead, Twitter is finally addressing the presence of Russian agents on its platform - and their efforts to influence the 2016 US presidential election.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has asked representatives from each of the three tech titans to testify at an open hearing on November 1 involving Russia's role in the election, a Senate aide confirmed to Reuters on Wednesday.
Twitter, on the other hand, has shown to have multiple easily faked accounts and news items that allowed influencing of the public by alleged Russian operatives. The company also pointed out that none of these accounts were registered advertisers on the site.
This person, who requested anonymity, also said the ads will be shared with Congressional investigators in a matter of days.
"Twitter deeply respects the integrity of the election process, which is a cornerstone for all democracies", the company said in a blog post.
It didn't cite specific data, but Twitter also noted in its report that Russian Federation and Soviet-associated nations "have been a primary source of automated and spammy content on Twitter for many years".
"We know there is a huge appetite for more transparency into how Twitter fights bots and manipulative networks", the post said.
