TikTok CEO to give testimony before Congress in March

ByteDance Ltd.'s TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew will be testifying before the United States House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee at the end of March, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday citing a committee spokesman.

Republicans previously expressed concerns over the social media platform's data-sharing practices, while it was reported that the House would remove TikTok from work phones, as it was deemed "high risk to users due to a number of security risks."

The CEO, according to the spokesman, applied to testify voluntarily and will be the only witness at the hearing. This will allow American lawmakers to question Chew on various issues that have been raised so far.
