The congressional hearing where the CEO of TikTok was questioned about the security of the app seemed like a total farce and there are many things that could be said about some of the conflicts of interest of the politicians in that most of them had Meta stock (a direct competitor to TikTok). However, the chair of the hearing said that she thinks the app should be banned in the United States due to safety and security concerns. The recent success of making the Willow Project go viral on TikTok showed a real promise for environmental campaigns to succeed and reach audiences with a specific message. But now, the app may not be around and this will impact creators on the app, including marine science communicators. I am going to talk about what you should do in this situation.
