TikTok User Base in the US Grows to 150 Million Despite Government Pushback

Despite concerns from the US government over alleged spying, TikTok has continued to grow its user base in the country. In a recent report, the video hosting platform announced that it now has 150 million monthly active users in the US, up from 100 million in 2020.

TikTok has become a popular source of entertainment and viral trends in the US, with users from various demographics joining the platform. However, the app has faced accusations that it shares user data with the Chinese government, prompting concerns over national security.

TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew is set to testify before the US House Committee on Energy and Commerce on Thursday, where he is expected to address these concerns. President Joe Biden has also signed a bill banning the app on federal government employees’ devices.

Despite these challenges, TikTok remains a popular platform for learning and connecting with others who share similar interests. The app boasts over one billion users worldwide.

To avoid a potential ban, Biden has given TikTok’s Chinese owners an ultimatum to divest their stakes in the app. As the controversy surrounding TikTok continues, its growing user base in the US suggests that the platform is here to stay.
