Technology News Desk!!! Shou Jie Chu, CEO of the Chinese short-form video platform facing a nationwide ban in the US, has warned users that he is going to appear before the US Congress on March 23. In a one-minute video on TikTok, Chew thanked the TikTok community of 150 million Americans ahead of his congressional hearing. Nearly half of the US is coming to TikTok, he said, including 5 million US businesses. Most of these are small and medium businesses. According to The Verge report, Tiktok has around 7,000 employees in the US. Chew said, some politicians have started talking about banning Tiktok. Now this could take TikTok away from all 150 million of you people. The Joe Biden administration has reportedly demanded that China-based ByteDance, the owner of TikTok, must sell its stake in the short-video making app or face a possible ban. According to The Wall Street Journal, the White House threat is limited to sanctions and pending legislation. According to the report, the Committee on Foreign Investment in America sought the sale. TikTok had said in a statement that the forced sale would not address the alleged security risk. A group of 12 US senators has unveiled a new bill that now has the backing of the White House and would give President Biden the power to ban TikTok nationwide.
