TikTok vs. Meta & Google


TikTok is being banned from government devices in the US over concerns that the parent company Bytedance is using the social media app to spy on Americans. But some in Congress are fighting to keep using the platform. Representatives worked with TikTok to hold a press conference and protest outside the capital ahead of a committee hearing. TikTok even paid for influencers from all over the country to come to DC and protest. International correspondent Roxana Solano breaks down who the ban really benefits. Scottie Nell Hughes talks with Tech Features Editor of Business Insider, Tekendra Parmer, about the battle between TikTok vs. Meta and Google and how it is part of a larger geopolitical context between China and the United States.
