In a way, there has been a success for TikTok in the US app market this weekend. Despite an executive order coming from the White House to ban the app during the weekend of September 26, a judge ruled in favor of the app, allowing it to remain available for download.
A US court allowed TikTok to remain available as the details of the Oracle/Walmart takeover (In the US) are being finalized.
TikTok issued a short statement on the ruling yesterday, saying this in a tweet:
“We’re pleased that the court agreed with our legal arguments and issued an injunction preventing the implementation of the TikTok app ban. We will continue defending our rights for the benefit of our community and employees. At the same time, we will also maintain our ongoing dialogue with the government to turn our proposal, which the President gave his preliminary approval to last weekend, into an agreement.”
