TikTok Messaging

November 29, 2019

Is TikTok a platform for anti-nation state propaganda? (If you don’t know about TikTok, this write up will make no sense. Stop reading.)

The answer is, “Yep.”

A good explanation of what young people are doing with short videos appears in “Teen Who Went Viral with TikTok Hair Tutorial Tells ITV News People Need to Know about China Threat to Uighur Muslims.”

This is important for several reasons:

  • TikTok is a China based outfit. DarkCyber thinks that Chinese officials will be talking about TikTok and coming up with some creative ideas to prevent hair tutorial type information from going global.
  • Teens and other TikTok users may be difficult to guide down the path of truth and justice. More meetings will be necessary.
  • More attention on the Uighur matter may not be desirable. More meetings will ensue.

Net net: TikTok may be invited to some meetings and given an opportunity to be re-educated. Just a thought. Russia re-educated Apple about Crimea. China and Russia may share ideas when their joint military exercise with Iran takes place.

Worth monitoring.
