The U.S. Justice Department has announced (via the AP) they’re opening a massive antitrust investigation into big technology companies.

The Justice Department is launching the investigation to see if big companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, and so on have hurt their competition, suppressed innovation, or otherwise harmed consumers.

A growing number of lawmakers on both sides of the spectrum have been calling for stricter regulation, or even the breaking up of big tech companies.

We’ll keep you guys posted.
