Default Texas to be first state to ban TikTok

LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - During the pandemic the social media app TikTok quickly took the world by storm. However, the app?s origins in China and its apparent ties to the government?s communist party turned it into a political lightning rod. On Monday, Governor Abbott announced a plan to ban TikTok statewide saying it is a danger to the state?s critical infrastructure. We spoke with a few students around Texas Tech campus to get their opinions.

?Your phone could get hacked without you knowing people have access to all that stuff nowadays so you got to watch out,? one Tech student said.

TikTok has been a controversial topic among lawmakers, so much so that many Texas universities have already banned TikTok from state-issued devices and campus wi-fi, but some students say it?s more of an educational app.

Honestly strange that the party of "small government" would be the one to finally do it, but it seems like the majority from both parties are on board with it-- at least the majority of adults.

If we want our data stolen, it should be by good old American firms that make money selling that data to China (or China has to hack our companies to get it). China shouldn't be able to directly harvest our data.

The party of small government actually turned out to be the party of biggest snowflakes as they are oversensitive that kids might learn of slavery or other types of issues that hurts their feelings. Party of small government except what books you read, reproductive health, rights of LBGQT, what a private company like Disney does or says. The GOP has become the party of projection and hypocrisy to the max. Other than that they are fine bunch of anti science old racists.

Which part? Racist or anti-science?
