China warns Japan about Tiktok

Varys

China has warned Japan that banning ByteDance’s short-video app TikTok would have a “large impact” on bilateral relations, broadcaster TBS reported Friday, citing unnamed Japanese government sources.

A group of lawmakers in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party has decided to push for steps to restrict the app over concerns people’s data could end up in the hands of the Chinese government, local media reported.

The foreign ministry was not immediately available to comment. The government has not said it is considering banning the app.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Thursday a sweeping ban on transactions with Beijing-based ByteDance even as Microsoft Corp. is in negotiations to acquire the app, escalating tensions between the two countries.

I mean the fact that banning an app that they say is ‘harmless’ could affect their political relationship shows that its not so harmless now is it? That app is shady as fudge

Nah I don’t think it’s that shady. Literally there’s a global movement to stunt china’s tech industry. Makes sense why they would retaliate. If countries don’t want a fair market than China won’t support international markets either.

Is anyone else concerned with China’s response to this? China and co. ban MANY of our apps for censorship purposes and so on, yet does the United States or any other international first world country send threats in retaliation over apps and other software? 

Things that make you go hmm.
