TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew's Congress showdown: Five takeaways 📢
💼 US legislators were united in their criticism of TikTok from both sides of the aisle.
💻 ByteDance engineers in China have access to US data, sparking concerns over whether the Chinese government could also access it.
💰 Chew has shares in ByteDance and so the Chinese government says it would block any US plan to force ByteDance to sell TikTok.
👶 Chew's children do not use TikTok as they live in Singapore where the version of the app for those younger than 13 is not available.
🔍 Chew highlighted Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, emphasizing that American companies don’t have the best track record when it comes to data privacy.
🤦♂️ From my perspective, the main thing highlighted was that so many congressional leaders have a complete understanding of the app and its broader complications, and they are the ones trying to regulate it.
