A TikTok ban is not about privateness, it is about politics

The TikTok app is probably going to be banned in a handful of Western countries. In the U.S. it’s already in motion and all that’s left is for the right politician to sign the right piece of paper and it’s out of here. Someone smart will find a workaround, but for the average user there will be no way to get the app and it’s not going to work if you do find it.

This was a dumb idea when former President Trump wanted to do it, and it remains a dumb idea under the current administration. This silly idea is only being forwarded because of where TikTok originates, not what it is doing. I’m talking about China, of course.
