    Issues surrounding Tik Tok, a popular social media app among teenagers, had been a hot topic for several months since the U.S. president announced a potential ban on the app last month. Concerns involving “national security” triggered anger across the U.S., with some even protesting in front of the Trump building. But why does Tik Tok matter so much to the U.S. users? And how large will be the impact if it actually gets banned? #TikTok #internationalpolitics #China #U.S. #TikTokdeal #socialmedia #tiktokinfluencers

    TikTok, known in China as Douyin, is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based Internet technology company founded in 2012 by Zhang Yiming. It is used to create short music, lip-sync, dance, comedy and talent videos of 3 to 15 seconds, and short looping videos of 3 to 60 seconds.

    ByteDance first launched Douyin for the Chinese market in September 2016. Later, TikTok was launched in 2017 for iOS and Android in most markets outside of mainland China; however, it only became available worldwide, including the United States, after merging with another Chinese social media service Musical.ly on 2 August 2018.
