Will Microsoft buy TikTok?



Just recently, Microsoft confirmed that it was in talks to buy TikTok from ByteDance and expects to conclude the M&A negotiations by 15 September. If a deal happens, Microsoft has stated that it will move data servers which cover US users to US shores in order to alleviate concerns by Trump and his administration that Chinese government officials might be able to track TikTok users or access private messages.
