Where do you stand on this issue?
Personally, I don't have a TikTok account and don't have the app on my personal phone. I have many reasons why I have never joined TikTok, the main one being that when TikTok became very popular a year and a half ago I said to myself "I love Twitter, I love Instagram, and I spend wayyyy too much time on Facebook already, I'm not adding another app to my plate" that was my honest reaction to it. Now, seeing all of the reports about why our leaders want to ban TikTok makes me very nervous about downloading it.
