Thought I'd share this since many Vpop idols and Vietnamese celebrities use TikTok and I'm always on there to share new videos on the Vpop artist threads. Starting tomorrow, Americans will still be able to use the app but no new downloads. Both the TikTok and WeChat app will be removed from all app stores. I think we can still share TikTok links or embed videos but things could change in the future. What are your thoughts on this?
