Oracle Buys TikTok App – What This Means for TikTok Users

Oracle and TikTok could before our eyes become one in business in the U.S. This deal was created to bring peace because Trump’s administration is not a fan of the video app, speaking as someone with experience.

This information came in after speculating for weeks about the future of TikTok in the U.S. Donald Trump has stated that if the app isn’t sold, then it would have to leave the country in peace.

What is going on between Oracle and TikTok isn’t definite at the moment. It wasn’t a “take this money and give me this product” type of thing. This news came in after Microsoft stated it wasn’t going to purchase TikTok, and ByteDance was the one that made this information before the public.

Oracle stated this is part of the proposal that ByteDance submitted to the department that handles all issues related to funds. There it stated it would serve as the trusted provider of technology. ByteDance was asked to comment, but they have not yet responded. TikTok refused to comment too.

Tiktok Is a Controversial App

After TikTok became extremely popular in western countries and the United States, it became one of the first social media platforms made by the Chinese to gain this many followers outside of China. It has more than three hundred fifteen million downloads only from three months this year—more downloads quarterly than any other application in the history of app downloads.

US politicians and Trump stated the application served as a national security threat because Beijing could use it to spy on the United States. Other authorities have stated that it could be used in the collection of personal data on the citizens of the United States.

TikTok stated it never had any plans of doing any of these things. It centers its data outside China, and none of the data gotten by TikTok could be subjected to the law of China.

The agreement Oracle had for TikTok came some days before the US wanted to ban TikTok. After the 20th of September, the department of commerce needs to make everyone knows the type of business Oracle has involved itself with involving TikTok. Or both would be banned from the country. You know the US doesn’t waste time when it wants to get rid of something.

We don’t fully know yet if the partnership of Oracle and TikTok would save the app from being prohibited in the United States. The language and scope of the order and the remarks Trump has stated about TikTok has made everyone confused with how this ban would take place. Trump also said TikTok has till the 7th of November to find a buyer.

One of the employees of TikTok challenged this ban in the federal court. He wants this decision handled judicially for the 6th of August in order to get suspended. We will know how that would end when the time comes.
