TikTok calls Twitter merger reports 'speculation'

Sunday, 09. August 2020 06:47

Reports that TikTok will merge with Twitter Inc are "market speculation," Global Times reported on Sunday, citing a TikTok spokesperson.

TikTok commented after a Wall Street Journal article claimed Chinese ByteDance, TikTok's parent company, could load off its US TikTok division to Twitter.

Earlier, Microsoft said it was interested in buying TikTok after United States President Donald Trump pushed for the app to be sold to an American company, citing national security reasons and even issuing an executive order to ban ByteDance in the US in just over a month.
