TikTok has set up an information hub and Twitter account in an effort to combat misinformation and rumors about its social media platform in real time. TikTok said Monday it will use the accounts to “shine a light on the facts and set the record straight.”
“We are taking another step to continue to build trust with our TikTok community by delivering the facts — in our own words and in the words of leading experts across cybersecurity, media and academia — because we neither support nor stand for the spread of misinformation on our platform, or about our platform,” TikTok said.
It comes after Microsoft is in talks to buy up the TikTok app from ByteDance.in relation to the short-video app, giving Chinese parent company ByteDance 90 days to finish a deal to sell off the US arm of TikTok.
