In today's tech bytes-- an app that tells you who might have been exposed to the Coronavirus is going largely unused.

Apple and Google introduced it six months ago, and it's designed to protect personal information. But only 18 states have made the technology available and people living in those locations haven't activated it.

In south Texas, a 165-foot tall rocket is ready to fly today. Elon Musk showed off the new look for his " starship" - a prototype SpaceX wants to use to send people to space. The rocket is supposed to reach eight miles above earth today - far higher than previous test flights. 

And Twitter is out with its list of most tweeted about people in 2020. Number 3 - George Floyd. Number 2 was Joe Biden and the number one most tweeted about person in 2020 was President Trump.
