TikTok is shelving plans for a global headquarters in Britain, according to The Sunday Times. The paper says the social media giant’s parent company ByteDance had been in talks with the government for several months, but hopes to create 3,000 jobs have been placed on hold as a “tit-for-tat economic war” threatens to erupt between London and Beijing.
