TikTok is to create 1,000 new jobs in Ireland, adding to its workforce of 2,000 people here.
The Chinese video sharing platform first came to Ireland in 2019.
It has a number of its European teams based in Dublin, including a transparency and accountability centre.
Good meeting with TikTok CEO @ShouZiChew and @IDAIRELAND today to discuss their Irish growth plans.
Delighted that TikTok are creating 1000 new jobs here in 2022.

The head of the IDA Martin Shanahan says this investment shows Ireland's strategic importance.
It's believed the recruitment for these 1,000 jobs will start straight away.
Earlier this week the app announced plans to improve users' well-being by allowing them to set screentime limits after teenagers reported wanting to have more control.
