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.
