>US move angers TikTok users
美欲封禁TikTok引争议
The TikTok community is pouring out its frustration over the possible ban by the US government and is expressing support for the company on social media.
美国政府可能实施的封禁在TikTok社区引发强烈沮丧情绪,大批网友在社交媒体上声援TikTok公司。
The app has gained in popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic, since many view it as a source of entertainment and education.
这款应用程序在新冠肺炎疫情期间走红,许多人将其视为娱乐和教育的来源。
Many young TikTok users are so desperate to keep the app around that they launched a movement called "saveTikTok" on social media.

TikTok star Griffin Johnson tweeted on Saturday that it had given him "a lot of friends & memories that I will forever be thankful for".

TikTok CEO Kevin Mayer said in a blog post on Wednesday that the reason his company was under scrutiny was because of its Chinese origins.
TikTok首席执行官凯文•梅耶尔在7月29日发布的一则博文中称,TikTok面临审查是因为它有"中国血统"。
Under the grand framework of China-US strategic gaming, the rise of TikTok is symbolic of the challenge to US dominance in information technology, said Shen Yi, professor and director of the Research Institution of Global Cyberspace Governance at Fudan University in Shanghai.
上海复旦大学网络空间国际治理研究基地主任沈逸教授称,在中美战略博弈的大框架下,TikTok崛起代表了中国正对美国在信息技术领域的优势发起挑战,这可能引起白宫的狂怒。
"This is likely to cause fury in the White House," he said. Shen said TikTok's success, especially its popularity among the younger generation of American users, stands to showcase a true China to local audiences and could help destroy the "evil China image" that the Trump administration has long been fabricating. "This is a fight for supremacy over discourse and ideology."
沈逸表示,TikTok的成功,尤其是在美国年轻一代中流行,将给当地受众展示真实的中国,这可能帮助打破特朗普政府长期以来捏造的邪恶中国的形象,这是一场话语权和意识形态领域的战争。
