This week: TikTok banned from UK ministers' devices, promises new measures to protect user data...

Another testing week for TikTok began with the UK becoming the latest government to ban the platform from work devices (sorry, Nadine). Undeterred, the platform pled its case yesterday, promising new data security measures before appearing before congress.

Social media behemoth Meta also faced a challenging week, having been hit with an unlawful termination suit in Kenya.

It wasn't bad for all, however: Google announced its Bard chatbot is now available for early access in the UK and US, ramping up its efforts to compete with Microsoft-backed ChatGPT. Meanwhile, Japanese conglomerate Tencent showed signs it is recovering from Beijing's crackdown on the tech sector after posting revenue growth for end of 2022.
