Govt asked Google and Apple to remove TikTok from their App Market Place.
TikTok is an immensely popular video sharing app that boasts of about 0.5 billion users, over 119 million of whom are in India. The bulk of these users are children and teenagers.
TikTok’s official statement on the matter is as follows:
This development comes right after the Madras High Court’s hearing on April 16 where it has refused to suspend the ban on TikTok. The court also appointed Advocate Arvind Datar as independent counsel in this case. The next hearing at the HC is set for April 24, while the Supreme Court will hear the matter again on April 22.
NOTE : A lesson for all content creators- Any platform can shut down overnight so make sure you’re on more than one platform and create content for different platforms coz if the platforms gone so is your content!
