Gov. Kristi Noem Bans Chinese-owned TikTok for South Dakota Government

Kristi Noem, South Dakota's governor, said enough is enough when it comes to the Chinese-owned social media app, TikTok.

Recently the app has been plagued with privacy issues that concern not only government officials but all Americans also.

On Tuesday Governor Noem took to Twitter to announce her TikTok ban on South Dakota's State Government, she said:

"Today, I signed an Executive Order that bans the Chinese social media platform TikTok for state government agencies, employees, and contractors using state devices.

South Dakota will have no part in the intelligence gathering operations of the Chinese Communist Party."

Kristi Noem is the first woman to be elected as governor of South Dakota. She was born in 1973 and grew up on a family farm. Noem studied business at college, and then returned to her home state to work in politics. She served in the state legislature for six years, before running for governor in 2010. Noem won the election and has been serving as governor since 2011.
