On March 23, TikTok CEO Chew Shou Zi testified before the U.S. Congress regarding potential Chinese government influence on the app and its alleged negative impact on youth mental health. During the five-hour testimony, Chew denied that TikTok shared U.S. user data with China or had ties to the Chinese government.
