CEOs from four of the five largest technology companies in the world are set to testify before the House Judiciary subcommittee on antritrust today. Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Google's Sundar Pichai, and Apple's Tim Cook will all testify together for the first time in history. The hearing is set to kick off at 1 PM ET following an hour delay. Please check out this live video embed of the antitrust hearing below.

The CEOs have provided an advanced look at their prepared remarks:

President Trump has targeted tech companies on social media many times, but has frequently referred to Apple CEO Tim "Tim Apple" Cook positively over the past few years. With Amazon's Jeff Bezos frequently drawing the ire of the president, today's hearing is about just how massive these companies have become. Apple, Google, Facebook, and Amazon represent trillions of dollars of market capitalization and together control a lot of very important industries.
