Then you’d be happy to know that that’s all rumor and not mentioned at all in the bill.

Ironically, the spread of that rumor shows precisely the undue influence TikTok and unchecked social media can have over a populace.

Don’t get me wrong, the bill is shit and gives too many broad powers to the executive branch, but you don’t have to make fear mongering accusations to say so.

The real problem is data protection and Congress should be passing something akin to the GDPR in Europe or the CCPA in California to get closer to solving the actual problem.
