TikTok to teach influencers about US mid-term election rules https://t.co/V8dpyeOSTt

The video platform has announced new steps to ensure influencers understand that paid political ads are prohibited.
Following 2020 US election the company admitted it needed to do more to ensure influencers followed its rules…
Over the coming weeks TikTok said it would publish educational content and host briefings with influencers and advertising agencies “so the rules of the road are abundantly clear when it comes to paid content around elections”.
It warned that if it discovered that political content was paid for and not properly disclosed, it would be “promptly removed from the platform”…
… TikTok’s actions go beyond paid content. All posts, whether paid for or not, must also not violate its policies.
Election misinformation, harassment – including that directed towards election workers – hateful behaviour, and violent extremism are all banned, TikTok says.
Content may also be fact-checked and the company is taking steps to limit the spread of posts while that process is under way…
TikTok also announced it will launch its election centre six weeks earlier than in 2020.
The election centre aims to provide voters with authoritative information and other resources.
And we can use TikTok legitimately!

as somebody that has registered a ton of voters and gotten a few republicans to vote democrat, you just have to get them to do it once. you just have to get a guy to vote across party one time and then he’ll do it again and again. it’s that first time that is the berlin wall.

(At least in some states… )
Don’t ban felons from voting, require them to, in their home or release district (no prison gerrymandering). And not after their years of probation or lifetime of paying off fees. It’s part of civic responsibility and rehabilitation. Maybe some people wouldn’t like the results?
