As of now, the company hasn’t revealed the name of the person who will replace Ma Wei-Ying. Ma will leave the organization by the end of this week. The technology news website named ‘The Information’, first reported Ma’s departure. The website says Ma will join China’s Tsinghua University later.

As reported by Reuters, the company has recently hired 150 engineers in California to expand its engineering and research department over there. The top officials in the US cabinet have claimed that the government will soon be going to take a major step on the ban on Chinese originated mobile applications like the act done by India.

Earlier, the statement in Company’s trust was made by the US spokesperson of TikTok, saying, “Company’s growing US team has no higher priority than promoting a safe app experience that protects users’ privacy. Millions of American families use TikTok for entertainment and creative expression, which we recognize is not what federal government devices are for”.

Surely, the act of TikTok App Ban in the US Senate is the start in response to the growing tension between China and America.
