Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin announced Tuesday they would step down from their executive roles at the tech giant's parent company Alphabet.
US presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, who has made regulating big tech a cornerstone of her campaign, tweeted that lawmakers would continue to hold Page accountable for the company's business practices because of his majority control of the voting power, regardless of his title.
Warren also said she still expected Page to testify about the company before Congress.

Analysts say Alphabet CEO Larry Page and company president Sergey Brin's decision to step down from their leadership roles doesn't come as much of a surprise.
That's because Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who will be taking over as the chief executive of Alphabet, has largely been the face of the company since 2015.
The transition also comes at a critical time for Google as it's been at the center of antitrust concerns along with other tech giants like Facebook and Amazon.
