Yup, Mark Zuckerberg Actually Used a Booster Seat While Testifying – and Twitter Is DYING

Mark Zuckerberg may have been questioned by Capitol Hill lawmakers for hours on April 10 and 11, but hey, at least his rear (and his ego!) were fully intact after the grilling session. When the Facebook founder and CEO testified before the House Energy and Commerce Committee about the social media site’s handling of personal data, onlookers immediately noticed what he was sitting on: a four-inch pad that can be likened to a height-bolstering cushion you use when you’re either a toddler who doesn’t want to use your high chair at dinnertime or an elderly person who can’t see over the steering wheel. If you don’t believe it, we’ve got the receipts to prove it.
