Tech Bytes: Twitter facing fine, Trump threatening TikTok shutdown, Spiderman joining Avengers game

Updated: August 04, 2020 11:07 AM

Twitter says it is facing a quarter billion dollar fine for privacy violations. The FTC is looking into whether Twitter used phone numbers and emails to target ads. That would violate a 2011 agreement in which Twitter agreed to better protect the privacy of its users.

President Trump is vowing to shut down TikTok in the U.S. unless Microsoft or another American company buys the U.S. arm of the operation by September 15th. The president is citing security concerns with TikTok’s Chinese based parent company. Microsoft has confirmed that talks are underway.

And Spiderman is joining Marvel’s Avengers game, but only on PlayStation. He’ll appear next year but not for Windows PC and Xbox users. The makers of The Avengers haven’t said if Spidey will be a permanent character. He’s already exclusive to two other PlayStation games.
