TikTok ramps up attacks on Biden administration in challenging prospective ban

·1 min

TikTok expressed its concerns over a potential ban in the United States, arguing that it could isolate US users from the global community if the app is forced to find a new owner. The company revealed a draft agreement with the US government that it claims would have addressed national security concerns but was discarded in favor of legislation that TikTok argues violates the First Amendment. The case could have implications for the fate of the app and how courts interpret online speech and the First Amendment. TikTok stated that divesting from its Chinese parent company is not possible by the specified deadline.
