Tech Bytes: Tiktok strikes back
Tiktok strikes back. As expected, the Chinese-owned company is suing the state of Montana over its law banning the app, claiming the measure suppresses free speech. Montana officials say the law addresses security concerns over the app. It takes effect next year.
Next, reports of a “bug” plaguing Twitter. Some users say their deleted tweets are reappearing on their timeline. It’s unclear how widespread the issue is, or what’s causing the deleted tweets to resurface. Twitter has not commented on the reports.
Whatsapp is launching a feature that lets users fix messages they’ve already sent. But there’s only a 15-minute window to do it. If you make a correction or add an emoji to a sent message, it will include the word “edited” next to the time stamp.
