What is the Probleum With Tiktok? It’s Possible That Twitter is the Real Problem: Can we say that TikTok is terrible for us? Can something that’s so widely embraced be the bane of American society’s existence? Although the supporting data is minimal, it is possible. But it hasn’t stopped three US lawmakers from advocating for a complete ban.
However, at the present time, this is largely for aesthetic purposes. TikTok’s U.S. operations and their connections to parent company ByteDance, which is based in China, have been under investigation by the US government, including the current Biden administration, for quite some time. Meanwhile, TikTok US has been busy assuring authorities that it is taking all necessary precautions to keep US data safe from Chinese snoops. Recently, it has been working to transfer all of its US information to Oracle’s databases.
Although I do not think TikTok intentionally intends to damage US consumers, I appreciate the government’s efforts to safeguard us. On the other hand, I don’t see much happening about a social media site that may be actively harming real Americans right this second.

You see, I can’t help but draw comparisons between the increasing dumpster fire that is current on Twitter and the prospective legislative action on TikTok, which has millions of highly enthusiastic and, it seems, generally happy users. Like Facebook, it has millions of users, but its members are getting unhappy.
Nearly two months have passed since Elon Musk assumed control of Twitter, and the social media platform has been in upheaval ever since. Sure, Twitter was due for a change. It was losing money, expanding slowly, and occasionally allowing questionable material to be posted. The platform’s stability was called into question, however, as Musk came in and foolishly laid off half the workforce and then, through a series of punitive measures, forced out thousands more. Musk has long maintained he aspired for Twitter to be a digital town square where all voices could be heard freely, but recently he has focused on reviving outlier accounts, targeting enemies(opens in new tab), and publishing confidential company information.
Consensus-shifting influence on Twitter is dwindling, but it still has a disruptive effect. One of the most followed persons on the site is the CEO of a large internet business, and he has recently taken to openly engaging in the trading of conspiracy theories(opens in new tab) and making statements that officials have admitted put people at genuine risk.
So, by all means, let’s start digging into TikTok. The Chinese government has made it abundantly clear that it wants access to all of the nation’s most sensitive infrastructure and other key systems. Why not just use the millions of people who spend hours every day refining their TikTok dances? In all honesty, I have no idea.
What I do know is that an essential part of the technological community, a hub for networking and information sharing, is crumbling. Twitter is sending sparks flying in every direction as it burns to the ground. There is a chance that some of them will catch fire and do actual damage.
Perhaps we ought to look into that as well.
To what end would prohibit TikTok serve?
Republican senator Marco Rubio has spearheaded a push to have Congress pass a law that would make it illegal to use the video-sharing app TikTok in the United States. Rubio’s press secretary stated that the Chinese communist government may utilize TikTok to spy on Americans, which was the impetus for the legislation.
Is TikTok illegal in any country?
Iowa’s Chief Information Officer has been instructed by Governor Kim Reynolds’s office to prevent state agencies from subscribing to or holding TikTok accounts and to ban the app from any state-owned devices effective immediately.
Do we hear rumors of a US ban on TikTok?
Texas joined Maryland, South Dakota, South Carolina, and Nebraska on Wednesday in banning the app. TikTok is controlled by a Chinese corporation, ByteDance, which has raised concerns among American authorities who fear the Chinese government may compel the company to disclose information about its millions of users.
Is this restriction on TikTok indefinite?
The rules have been broken too many times, and you will be notified that your account may be deleted permanently. If the problematic activity continues, the user’s TikTok account will be deleted permanently. There will be a banner alerting you that your account has been blocked the next time you launch the app.
Where is the push to get TikTok banned coming from?
In the capital city of Washington — Following warnings from the FBI director and cybersecurity experts that China may exploit the social media platform for eavesdropping, a group of senators in the House and Senate proposed legislation on Tuesday that would prohibit TikTok in the United States.
This banning of so many TikTok videos begs the question: why?
Multiple U.S. government agencies have expressed worries about the safety of users’ personal information on TikTok and have discussed the possibility of imposing a ban on the app within the country. TikTok’s parent firm, ByteDance, has a checkered legal past when it comes to user privacy.
