TikTok has confirmed that despite President Trump's executive order signed on Thursday, they intend to bring hundreds of new jobs to the Austin area.

We're proud to build our presence in Austin and be a part of the thriving business and tech community locally. The Austin community embodies the same creative and entrepreneurial spirit that defines the TikTok community, and we are going to do all we can to ensure our company's future in Texas and the US. Our goal is to be here for years to come for our users, our creators and for the 1,500 people we currently employ in America, the 10,000 people we intend to hire here, including the hundreds of new jobs we're bringing to Austin.
