This news, got a mixed reaction from people, in general. While this is definitely good news for ByteDance, the parent company of TikTok, and its fans, something about some of these posts below tells us that not everybody is too happy about it.

On 3 April, the Madras High Court directed the Centre to ban the download of TikTok as it voiced concern over "pornographic and inappropriate content" being made available through such platforms.
