Our lead story in this edition of The Draft captures the recent "political" attacks on Chinese short-form video platform TikTok in the United States, over concerns about its affiliation with the Chinese communist party.

Some US lawmakers have made the move to ban TikTok from collecting data on tens of millions of American children and adults every day, citing national security reasons – a glaring reflection of the strained relations between the US and China.

All the details you need to know on this developing story – and other important technology stories, including tech layoffs, product launches, business shutdowns, government bans, startup funding deals, and mobile insights – are in this week(end)'s edition.

Happy holidays!
