Senators ‘Shocked’ To Learn TikTok Does Things Only Made Possible By Their Corrupt Failure To Pass A Real Privacy Law

I am hoping to help draw attention to this excellent article about the failure of government to protect our privacy. I saw this article on Techdirt this morning. It’s actually written by the same person that would write articles for dslreports aka

Basically, the problem lies in the US’s lack of privacy rules. Instead of banning tiktok they need to pass privacy rules that make it illegal for tiktok to use their customer’s data in nefarious ways. So many other companies are buying and selling your data and manipulating their users that it is literally affecting the entire country. It seems the government has already forgotten one of the most famous privacy incidents ever with Cambridge Analytica.

It’s a good read and I hope it gains some traction.
