WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a vote on sending subpoenas to the chief executives of Twitter and Facebook on Oct. 22, it said in a statement.

"If an agreement for voluntary testimony is not reached, the committee will vote on authorizing the subpoenas at a date to be determined," the statement said.
