TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew's Congress showdown

World A- A A+
Bruising, damaging, relentless. TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew faced four-and-a-half hours of questioning at a US congressional hearing on Thursday.
Ednews reports citing BBC that as one congressman pointed out, some people run marathons quicker than that.

A spokesperson for TikTok said afterwards the politicians were "grandstanding". There is most certainly some truth to that.
But between the sometimes frustratingly verbose questioning, we did learn a thing or two.
