  • What I find interesting about the US wanting to ban TikTok, is that China has banned Facebook, Twitter, Google, Instagram, YouTube and others. Suddenly, when TikTok appears as a possible spy tool for the CCP, and the US is worried about what they are doing, China and it’s company put up a big stink over it.

    I am not saying TikTok is doing what people allege, but if China was worried about what the US’s big social media businesses were doing in their country, why shouldn’t the west be worried about what China’s social media companies are doing here?
