    I’ve heard enough about tiktok to avoid going there.

    I saw a YouTube vid two days ago on a news channel that only reports on CCP actions and crimes about some guy who has a new Apple hacking alert app. When he was typing a text on his cell phone, for every letter/caricature he entered, one of his personal files in his phone would display altering him to a hacking. He made video of this accruing. The news report went on to say that Tiktok was started in 2018 by a Chines entrepreneur as a social platform for hopeful celebrity wannabes. The CCP came down on this guy to cooperate and collaborate with the CCP Army computer warfare/hacking division. This guy in 2019 made a public apology for not towing the CCP Party line. More likely he was threatened to cooperate and didn’t want become an organ donor.

    This is hacking/mining for data and personal info on people the world over perpetrated by the CCP is more of their government sponsored crimes, but what was most disgusting to me is with Tiktok is were people go to try and get them selves noticed to maybe get an acting or music career, and either do not know they are being a part of a CCP plot or know it and do not care. Also, a short video of some twenty something guy who did know that it is Chines run and had a CCP flag on his wall pointing to it and pledging his allegiance to China for his new found fame and the very next day his likes multiplied exponentially. This is a social platform to sell ones sole to for irrelevant fame.

    Don't know what it is, and don't want to...and I'm not as old of a curmudgeon as you might think.

    I read in another place that the Chinese can use TikTok for propaganda purposes and as a hacking tool.

    I will never download/join TikTok. A lot of people I know use it...not me.

    I’d rather have memes allowed here and TikToks banned. Some of them are funny, sure - I’ll give the creators of the good ones credit. Most of them, I don’t understand the point of.

    BTW that guy is on Facebook under “Ginger Billy” and most of the videos are hysterically funny :D

    AOC was bragging about organizing Tic Tok bots and users to flood Trump's Tulsa rally with online ticket requests to prevent real supporters from getting tickets and yet the Dims are trying to say Trump is the one colluding with foreign governments to win?

    With 14 irons in the fire I do not have time to watch stupid people doing idiotic things. Unless it means hanging out with Broot, Howlnmad, Goofy and a bunch of others
