The TikTok Chronicles: National Security Risk or Silly App?

President Biden just gave the green light to the “Peace Through Strength Act” on April 24 and it’s putting the pressure on ByteDance, the folks behind TikTok, to sell or face the national ban. 

TikTok’s CEO Shou Zi Chew, dropped a response on the app, “It’s obviously a disappointing moment, but it does not need to be a defining one … Rest assured, we aren’t going anywhere. We are confident and we will keep fighting for your rights in the courts.” Then they made good on that promise and sued in a Washington D.C. court on May 7. Remember TikTok successfully argued on the grounds of free speech and blocked the Montana ban in December 2023. Things just got spicy tho! 🥵

Raw, real, and entertaining content can reach your audience, without much followers or ad spend.

Brands embracing this shift from polished ads to entertaining, raw content will thrive, regardless of TikTok’s fate. This ban is a test of your team’s ability to adapt early to emerging trends!
