Her crowdsourcing effort had attracted thousands of responses less than an hour after her tweet. Many focused on why the company continues to accept political ads that violate Facebook's own misinformation policy. Others asked whether Facebook should be regulated, while others wanted to see the company's algorithms.

Many intriguing questions, but most appear a bit off topic for the House committee. Wednesday's hearing is called An Examination of Facebook and Its Impact on the Financial Services and Housing Sectors and will deal with Facebook's planned cryptocurrency, Libra.

This isn't Zuckerberg's first appearance before a congressional committee. In April 2018, Zuckerberg testified before committees in both the House and the Senate for a total of 10 hours over two days. He answered questions about Facebook's handling of user data, its privacy practices and the basics of how the social network operates.

Facebook declined to comment.
