Technology giants including Google, Facebook and Twitter have temporarily stopped processing requests from Hong Kong authorities for access to user data, after a new national security law was implemented. The new rules could see employees of companies which don't comply with the rules face up to six months in prison. The Chinese-owned video platform Tiktok has announced it will pull its app from download stores in Hong Kong as a result of the measures.
