Conference Call

Conference call: TikTalk with Aleks and Murad

TikTok is one of the highest-profile players in America’s tech Cold War with China. U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to ban the short-video platform, owned by Beijing-based ByteDance, unless it sells its U.S. assets to American owners. As that dispute has spiralled into confusion, the app has become ever more popular, transforming popular culture and the business of social media. And now it’s embarking on an ambitious Canadian growth plan.

Listen to our exclusive, subscriber-only conversation about TikTok in Canada: how the situation south of the border could impact its Canadian operations, how major Canadian tech players are benefiting from the platform’s success and how Canadians are hoping to win in the TikTok influencer economy.
