The CEO of TikTok is scheduled to testify before a House committee in March.
It comes as TikTok faces growing allegations that the Chinese government is using the platform to spy on Americans. The hearing will cover a range of topics, including consumer privacy and data security.

The city of San Francisco is asking California officials to slow down the rollout of driverless taxis.
It comes after some robotaxis stopped for no apparent reason during tests.
Results of the tests could determine how quickly other cities move ahead with driverless taxis.

Finally, Meta says a “small group of trusted creators” are the first to test members-only “worlds” in its social virtual reality platform.
The new areas of “Horizon Worlds” are suggested for book clubs and other similar groups.
They are limited to 150 members and 25 visitors.
