Some people are really in support of the government telling them what apps they can and cannot use eh? Or do they just not use it, and are in support of the government preventing other people from having the choice?
Of course, government regulates many things, that's part of its purpose. We cannot trust "the free market" when this app is controlled by a foreign government and can be weaponized against us in the form of theft, manipulation, blackmail or propaganda. It has societal implications and that is why government is involved.
You have not presented a compelling argument for why this particular app should be tolerated by the way. You speak generally when this is about a specific issue.
You claim things you have no evidence to back up. The government, as evidenced by the hearings, are a bunch of idiots who do not understand technology, and you want their opinion on the matter to override your informed opinion? Do you routinely regulate your decisions on uninformed people in other aspects of you lives?
