Special Edition: Sell or Be Banned – TikTok Ultimatum

• 17 min

The countdown has started for the owner of one of the most popular social media apps in America – TikTok – to either sell its stake or be banned in the U.S. To help explain how we got here and what might happen next, I’m joined today by a journalist who has been following the TikTok saga closely.  Makena Kelly is a senior writer at WIRED, where she covers the intersection of politics, power and technology. She is also the author of the WIRED Politics Lab newsletter and a frequent guest on the WIRED Politics Lab podcast.
