TikTok Negotiates $1.5 Billion Transparency Plan With U.S. Lawmakers

TikTok is in discussion with the U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment over a $1.5 billion plant to increase its transparency with the United States. The negotiations come as the platform presents national security concerns, with twenty-five states banning the app on government devices.

From The Daily Wire:

Growing security concerns over the social media platform have caught lawmakers’ attention recently after the Federal Communications Commission said it could not regulate the social media app or control American data from flowing back to Beijing and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which requires companies to share its data upon request under the country’s 2017 National Intelligence Law.
