TNI Bureau: According to Chinese National Newspaper ‘Global Times’, Chinese Internet giant ByteDance, mother company of TikTok, may lose as high as $6 billion following Indian Government’s ban on 59 Chinese Apps.
TikTok was one of the most popular Apps in India and had a huge subscriber base. However, it is being accused of diversion of user data, which is a threat to national security.

72% of the total TikTok revenue comes from China, while US accounts for 19%. As compared to the downloads, user spending on TikTok in India has been relatively low.
