US to ban TikTok downloads on Sep. 20

alsemanche

It will be banned (along with We Chat) from app stores on Sunday

"TikTok will be removed from US app stores from Sunday as Washington moves to implement executive orders from President Donald Trump that will also target WeChat, a Chinese social media app, according to a person briefed on the plans."

"The imminent removals come as Oracle and ByteDance, the owner of TikTok, continue talks with the Trump administration over how to resolve its concerns over the video app. Any deal will also have to be approved by Beijing."

Not gonna lie, feels like trump banned this due to the prank people did with the rally tickets or sumn (i really don’t know just very confused), but why is he so obsessed with the app? Literally he doesn’t use it and yeah

I hope countries WW follow this and also ban it.

I'm not for Donald Trump or support anything he is about, however I feel that TikTok needs to be taken down, for many reasons.

Not to defend Trump (I would never), but Chinese apps have tones of issues, both ethical and political. If you see only the surface, yeah tiktok is a social media for challenges, but actually is a growing algorithm of the biggest dictatorship on Earth.

I beg you to read some well-written scientific paper on this, or even a proper article.
