NBC News reports U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., was critical of TikTok and its potential mishandling of Americans' data during a hearing by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism. Hawley said the Chinese app "knows where your children are, knows what they look like, what their voices sound like, what they're watching, and what they share with each other." TikTok declined to attend the hearing but sent a letter to the subcommittee stating it does not store U.S. user data or moderate content based on government direction. Meanwhile, the Brennan Center for Justice announced it joined a coalition of 41 groups on a letter opposing proposed expanded collection of social media data by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
