Just now, President Biden said:

:ohwell: Trump lowkey has done many things to save the music industry.

 

1. Passing intellectual property rights legislation

2. Ending Kanye’s popularity

3. Ending TikTok

 

 

Just saying!!

And finally getting Taylor Swift to say this:

Kinda sad but it's just for show for his base. He has been in bed with the Chinese for years now.

If it's in the interest of national security, I don't follow your equivalency. He's not banning TikTok because users on it don't like him or his administration and use the platform to be critical of it, he's banning it because of ties to China, a country which, I cannot stress enough, is just a little bit hostile to America, it's government, and it's people. So no, it's not in the vein of China or North Korea, which ban social media as a way to oppress thought deemed "unacceptable".

fam TikTok is literally chinese malware lmao. this is not a 1st Amendment issue 

How is it a question of national security? I'm actually curious and nobody in the last thread was able to answer. Tik Tok collects information just as any other social media platform does. The fact that the other companies operate out of the U.S. doesn't change the fact that they sell our information to the highest bidder. Zoom "mistakenly" routed calls through China, after people criticised the idea of them having offices in China that could cave to pressure. They also misled consumers about encryption practices, and only allow encryption for paying customers. I'm sure we all know the many privacy concerns from Facebook and Company. They're all doing the same thing. This is Trump's racism and tech lobbyists, not a true concern for national security.

funny how little any of you care about freedom of speech because you're all too old and bitter to be involved in things considered 'trendy'

The fact that Gen Z would rather download “trendy” chinese spyware and scream “FREEDOM OF SPEECH!!!” as their defense while using an app from a country without freedom of speech is just so....Gen Z lmao.

don't get me wrong, i think TikTok is a great platform to have as it can not only be used educationally, but is entertaining in a way that encourages users to get off their couches and go out in the world to film...BUT i won't be re-downloading the app until there's clear proof that it is no longer spying on me.
