TikTok interim CEO invites Facebook and Instagram to support litigation against Trump ban

Donald Trump has moved ahead with the executive order to ban TikTok and WeChat from the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store. The app will not be available to download or update come Sunday, but you can use it if it's already downloaded on your device. Vanessa Pappas took to Twitter to invite Facebook and Instagram to present a united front against the ban, citing freedom of expression and due process of law.

Pappas, who recently became the interim CEO of TikTok after Kevin Mayer quit last month, was replying to Head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, who tweeted that the US TikTok ban would be bad not only for Facebook or Instagram, but the internet in general.

We'll have to wait and see if Zuckerberg owned Facebook and Instagram will publicly oppose the order. After all, it was he who reportedly persuaded the Trump administration to launch the attack on TikTok.
