This was initially exaggerated that wechat would be banned in the United States, which caused a stir among Chinese Americans.
Because of tiktok, I had a fight with my American colleague for the first time

The day has come. On the evening of August 6, US Eastern time, when I was ready to go to bed, trump signed an administrative order, which involved wechat.
In fact, from the moment trump blocked tiktok, I had a premonition that this war would affect more enterprises, but I didnt think that wechat was the first to be attacked.
A week ago, several Chinese friends and I were having a dinner to discuss tiktoks ultimate direction. At that time, I joked, who is the next? Ali? Tencent? Or Huawei?
Tencent has just rented an office in Irvine, California, with a total area of about 2430 square meters. I read from the news that this is one of the most expensive office rental contracts on the market in the second quarter. At that time, I joked with my wife that Tencent was going to do a big job in California. When this place opened, I would go for an interview.
Its no exaggeration to say that tiktok is already a phenomenal product in the United States, especially popular among young people. Since this year, the use of tiktok by American users has been higher than that of Facebook. More than 60% of American teenagers use tiktok at least once a month, compared with 36% and 41% on Facebook and twitter, according to a survey conducted by investment bank Piper Sandler in the first quarter of this year.
Tiktok has a great market among American teenagers, so the biggest protest against Trumps decision is the young people. Interestingly, there is a paragraph on the American social media: the best way for trump to let young people vote in the November election is to ban tiktok, so that they will eliminate him. Whats more interesting is that some young people are clamoring to smash the White House or give Trumps official campaign software a lot of low marks in software markets such as apple store.
As soon as the news of tiktoks death came out, it immediately became a hot topic on twitter in the United States. Many foreign netizens joked that once these online hot jobs were gone, they would go back to McDonalds and supermarkets to work
Although their behavior is understandable, I still feel shameless.
On the evening after trump signed an administrative order against tiktok and wechat, some Chinese in the circle of friends sent out their whatsappfacebook, line, telegram, etc., and then the Chinese circle began to spread articles on how to deal with it. In fact, the app store was transferred to China and downloaded wechat and then transferred back.
In fact, there is a mistake. In terms of the order itself, it does not mean that the United States can not use wechat after 45 days, but it blocks all transactions related to wechat. However, it is still unknown what kind of transactions are to be blocked.
The error messages were also searched on Weibo, and I had to appease my parents. The two old people couldnt brush microblogs when they were old. When they were walking around the corner, they heard this news, and my mother said that my father almost had a heart attack.
My hometown is in a prefecture level city in Anhui Province. After graduating from Zhejiang University, I went to the United States to study for graduate school, and then stayed in California for eight years. In the past few years, my parents were so excited. However, this years epidemic situation and the wechat incident made my father express the idea of letting me go back home.
In fact, after so many years in the United States, I have a well paid job, and during this period I have found another half with a small baby. It seems that I have integrated into American life. However, only I know that we transfer generation still have a deep gap with them. We are still outsiders. For example, I prefer porridge and pickles to hamburger coffee.
However, it was a dispute with my American colleagues that made me have the impulse to return home.
Im a very irascible person, but in a foreign country, I have to let my temper be restrained, so this is the first time Ive lost my temper since I worked, but I dont regret it.
Tiktok and wechat are just the beginning. There will be more hammers in the future

For me, I will focus on politics, but not so much. The most important thing is to make a good living.
Of course, its a pity that tiktok will be developed very well. Tiktok Kwai is also using Tiktok, which is almost like the jitter, which makes American young people fascinated. But there are not so many long legged legs, and the content is more interesting and more like fast hands. If you use one word to describe it, it is juggling.
I love make complaints about China make complaints about make complaints about American people.
At present, there are two main arguments on this issue. One is that tiktok will be dismembered, and the other is that tiktok will be disappeared. I prefer the second. Its US business is likely to disappear and may also affect the business of other countries. Although the United States can not control other countries, it will affect other countries. After all, the United States has many allies.
Even so, the war is on the verge, and the future of this kind of war on the Internet will not change much, so it is imperative.
I guess there might be one hammer after another, hitting it all the way down.
To tell the truth, Trumps stupidity still shocked many Chinese students. The students were very much affected. Many people were afraid that they could not get WeChat in the United States, but also made a guide to download and save WeChat friends circle. This is a common reaction. To be honest, these things have little impact on individuals. What has been downloaded will still be used. The United States will not cut off the network, let alone build a firewall. If you cant, just go over the wall. The biggest impact is still the business between companies.
Many people want to see if trump can stop the ban through lawsuits. The presidential decree he signed is yes, but not necessarily win. And time is also a problem. It will drag on. In fact, in the United States, there are people who have trump lawsuits every day. Trumps defendants should also have hundreds of thousands of people. Even those who initiate White House petitions and sign up to resist the ban are not uncommon. They are daily and useless.
But the White House Office will at least pay attention to it. Its a way to understand the grievances.
I used to work as a programmer in a large domestic factory. Two years ago, I came to the bay area to find a new life, to have a better living environment and to be more free.
In fact, this years epidemic situation is very difficult for everyone. Many Chinese have been laid off in Silicon Valley. I heard older programmers say that many people start to brush the interview questions when they are looking for jobs, which did not exist before. Many programmers, whether in the United States or China, have enjoyed a huge industry dividend, very lucky, and very happy. Its a rare experience to be laid off in middle age. But the most difficult thing is the new students. Many companies are not hiring this year, and small companies are closing down.
In fact, the epidemic has given many people a chance to rest. It is rare for them to have such a long rest. Moreover, I have never seen anyone really living badly because of the epidemic. In fact, as far as Im concerned, I prefer the environmental living standard here. But after staying here for a long time, especially working here for a long time, in fact, I still feel a lot of regret and missed the great opportunity in China. In the future, I will probably return home. I hope I can be more free in the future. I dont want to stay in the same place for a long time, and its hard to stay for a long time. The most important thing is that I havent experienced enough in the United States at the moment. I didnt adapt to it when I first came. I didnt have any friends. I found a lot of fun after that. I didnt have enough skiing and surfing. Moreover, I didnt plan to catch up with the changes. So I didnt think about the future and enjoy the present.
