Elizabeth Warren fired back at Mark Zuckerberg on Twitter Tuesday morning, after the Facebook founder and CEO said it would "suck" if his company had to fight her future administration's plans to break up certain tech giants.
Facebook Inc Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg told employees in July that the company would “go to the mat” to defeat Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren’s expected effort to break up the world’s largest social media company if she were elected president, according to audio of two internal company meetings from July published by The Verge.

On Election Day, political campaigns, candidates, consultants, and pollsters pay close attention to who votes and why—and so does Facebook. For the past six years, on every national Election Day, the social-networking behemoth has pushed out a tool—a high-profile button that proclaims "I'm Voting" or "I'm a Voter"—designed to encourage Facebook users to vote. Now, Facebook says it has finished fine-tuning the tool, and if all goes according to plan, on Tuesday many of its more than 150 million American users will feel a gentle but effective nudge to vote, courtesy of Mark Zuckerberg & Co. If past research is any guide, up to a few million more people will head to the polls partly because their Facebook friends encouraged them.

The social media networking site Facebook recently rejiggered the algorithm it uses to determine what its users see highlighted on their “news feeds,” the center column of shared links, pictures and posts that determines most of what a user sees at the site. There is a decent chance that this change will in large part determine what you read on the Internet in 2014. Maybe not “you,” the regular Salon reader or relative of the author, but “you” the person who clicked on this story because someone you know shared it on Facebook or Twitter.
Zuckerberg wants to add a new section to Facebook that adds personalized news to everyone's feed.
