Wow. That’s a new nugget and points back to Facebook’s own knowledge/awareness at the executive level and hints to why Zuckerberg got so weird in testimony to both @SenatorCantwell and @aoc when asked about Thiel and/or Palantir. Will link my full thread below.
Nugget in this new Peter Thiel cover story book excerpt: Yes, Palantir did indeed partner with Cambridge Analytica (and worse!) and totally got away with lying to the press and public about it. Worth spending your 1 free monthly Bloomberg article on this. bloomberg.com/news/features/…Show this thread

Here is a deep link into the thread of deceptions on this where zuckerberg was asked.
Here is the moment @SenatorCantwell asked Zuckerberg about Palantir. I noted then, it’s still the most bizarre body language by Zuckerberg during hearings. Only other time I saw it was 18 months later when @aoc also asked about timeline and discussions with Peter Thiel. /32Show this thread
And here is deep link to thread where AOC asked.
The question dodging on timeline would continue until Facebook ultimately settled with FTC and SEC for over $5 billion. A few months later 10/23/19, while Zuckerberg testified to House Financial Services, @AOC took an opportunity to inquire again - apparently surprising him. /19Show this thread
