SAN FRANCISCO — TikTok has again been spared a ban in the U.S., this time by a judge in Pennsylvania who granted a temporary halting of the restrictions against the video app that were set to take effect Nov. 12.

This time, it wasn’t TikTok itself that secured the injunction. Instead, three creators who use the app to build their businesses filed a suit to stop it from being shut down in the country. The TikTokers, as they are called, each have more than 1 million followers on the app and argued they would lose access to “professional opportunities afforded by TikTok,” according to the suit.
