“We’re working diligently to protect the integrity of our platform as the election cycle continues. We’re removing election misinformation as it’s identified – proactively through automated technology and human investigations, and reactively via reports from our users and partners. This includes, for example, false claims about voter fraud. We continue to reduce discoverability of content that prematurely declares victory in a race, and we apply a banner on such content that directs users to the AP for official and real-time race results. We’re also redirecting searches for terms and hashtags related to misinformation to our Community Guidelines to help people understand what is and isn’t allowed on TikTok.”

“The U.S. Administration’s move to ban TikTok and WeChat for U.S. app stores is a direct attack on the Internet. It is an extreme measure that fundamentally undermines the foundation of the Internet. It’s especially a threat to the principles of openness and accessibility as well as its decentralized management. The Internet has no center. This type of top-down intervention is worrisome because – similar to efforts in China – it tries to impose a centralized management style that runs counter to how the Internet actually works.”

The app was first reported as in development in late October.On Lasso, users can record themselves dancing and lip-syncing to music, similar to what they can already do on TikTok. The app also lets users record short clips like Vines.”

Having become a major player in China’s internet scene, it’s now planning to use its influx of cash to take on Western rivals.
