High level recap of today’s TikTok internal all-hands for employees: - Lots of uncertanty about everything - Employees told they are what make the app special & that is hard to replicate - Nothing said on Trump - Employees wondering how their stock in ByteDance will be impacted

When I covered Apple for NYT, I was called in to see Joswiak for an off the record peek at some new iPhone. He said it had the best screen of any phone. To compare I pulled my LG/Android from my pocket. Was later told it was the biggest affront for an Apple exec.

This is one scary story. I wonder how many more such instances are out there. The whole race to unicorn is perverted the system to such an extent that we are seeing some Enron style skullduggery in these parts! Well done A+ reporting

Earlier this year, ByteDance inserted language into U.S. vendor contracts "allowing it to terminate otherwise immovable contracts should a presidential executive order or other political ban end TikTok’s ability to operate in the U.S.”

And the distraction of the transaction/integration process is going to give Facebook and YouTube more room to attack than they had previously.

It's clearly good for them or they wouldn't be wanting to buy (most who could afford would want the hottest consumer app regardless of whether it made sense). But MSFT track record in social isn't great. Can they build on the same design/alogs that made TikTok special? — big q

The biggest winners of any TikTok U.S. ban/sell to Microsoft are Facebook and YouTube

NEW w/ : Microsoft is in serious talks to acquire TikTok. Why? - more able to afford TikTok, which could be worth >$30B - Mgmt. could easily absorb TikTok - ByteDance founder Zhang Yiming has ties to (worked there)
