Kiwi politicians ban TikTok

It seems that the country is worried about what the Americans tell them again

More than 30 years after the New Zealand stopped listening to the US after it allowed French spooks to blow up a ship in its harbours, Kiwi politicians are listening to American fears over the TikTok social networking app.

For those who came in late, the US has been trying to get its allies to ban TikTok over unproved fear of Chinese spying and leaving the field clear for US companies with a proven track record of stealing customer data.

New Zealand’s parliament has decided to ban TikTok from all parliamentary devices, amid mounting international security concerns surrounding the app.
