    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Six major Web companies and internet-service providers, including AT&T Inc, Twitter Inc and Alphabet Inc’s Google, will detail their consumer data privacy practices to a U.S. Senate panel on Sept. 26, according to a congressional statement on Wednesday.

    The Senate hearing will give the six technology-related companies, which also include Amazon.com Inc, Apple Inc and Charter Communications Inc, “an opportunity to explain their approaches to privacy,” said U.S. Senator John Thune, the Republican chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee.

    They will also testify on “how they plan to address new requirements from the European Union and California, and what Congress can do to promote clear privacy expectations without hurting innovation,” Thune said.

    Data privacy has become an increasingly important issue, fueled by massive breaches that have compromised the personal information of millions of U.S. internet and social media users, as well as breaches involving large retailers and credit reporting agency Equifax Inc.

    Separately, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in a tweet late on Tuesday that Google “claims to be fair, but gave a ‘silent donation’ to a left-wing group to stop Trump” and “works w/ China/Russia to censor the internet, but canceled a contract with our military.”

    He noted Google declined to take part in a Senate Intelligence hearing last week that featured Twitter and Facebook. “It’s time for @Google to answer some ?’s An invite will be on its way,” McCarthy wrote.
