The technology war between the USA and China has spread to all areas. According to the news shared by NYT, Amazon employees will not use TikTok.
Amazon employees face TikTok ban
The tension that began in 2019 between Google and Huawei had become technology wars between the U.S. and China. After the developments, the USA almost fought many Chinese products and services.
For this reason, companies based in the USA are trying to avoid Chinese products and services as much as possible. An important step in this matter came from Amazon. According to the news shared by The New York Times, the US-based e-commerce giant Amazon has restricted its employees. It is stated that now Amazon employees are prohibited from using TikTok.
According to the news, TikTok login will no longer be possible on the telephones of the company employees and other devices where they log in to their business e-mails. Important statements were made by TikTok, who took action very quickly in this regard. The TikTok spokesperson says they care about privacy and can’t understand why Amazon is upset about it. He stated that they are proud that they provide them with fun and inspiration for Amazon employees who work hard during the epidemic period.
The fact that Amazon Prime Video advertised to TikTok, but that Amazon made such a ban decision for its employees also shows that Amazon is contradictory in this regard. Also, a company has been criticized for such a restriction for its employees.
