In March, the US House of Representatives passed a law by a large majority that could lead to a ban on TikTok in the United States. The legislation requires the Chinese owner of the social networking site to sell its American branch, which includes 170 million users, to an American company within 6 months of its entry into force, otherwise it will be banned from operating.

Reuters According to his information For this reason, ByteDance, the Chinese company that owns TikTok, is already working on a version of the recommendation algorithm for its 170 million American users, which could lead to the release of an app that operates independently of the Chinese parent company.

ByteDance began sharing the app's source code even before the bill passed. According to experts who spoke to Reuters, this could even lead to the diversification of US interests, although TikTok has previously stated that it does not want to sell any of these interests.

Reuters also reached out to ByteDance on the matter, who did not respond, but after the article was published, they wrote on TikTok “As we have said before, the legally required ‘qualifying separation’ that would allow TikTok to continue operating in the United States is simply not possible: commercially, technically, or legally.” And certainly not within the 270 days required by law.”
