The forced sale of Tik Tok by the US Government and Trump has been a top priority ever since the middle of the global pandemic. It was well known that Chinese companies and the Government steal IP property and information so this urgency to ban Tik Tok and force the sale is borderline insane. Maybe we have more important things to get done like figuring out how to reopen the economy and what even is COVID. Im not a fan of the Government banning other countries apps because that’s what China has been doing with US companies like Facebook and Twitter. Is this a move to counteract them? Probably, but let the Tik Tokers dance and lip sync!
Since Tik Tok has been on the market many companies have been making the push to buy the company like hardware company Microsoft and now the mega giant Walmart. There is such an outcry in today’s society that these companies own everything and allows the rich to get richer, so I don’t understand why the government allows these deals to go through in the first place. Instagram (Facebook) came out with there own version of Tik Tok called Reels. Is it popular? I have no idea. I just want Walmart to own a social media platform. The cross advertisement would be hilarious.
