Require Twitter to Disclose The TikTok-Twitter Connection for Your Fans’ Data

TikTok Marked

When you are driving your fans to TikTok, think about this:  Twitter is rumored to be in the hunt to acquire TikTok, but Twitter has long been supporting TikTok’s massive data collection and interference capabilities.  In addition to accessing a trove of your user data that you may have thought was private, Twitter has allowed the TikTok app “Make Your Day” to take a variety of actions on your Twitter account.

And these are the ones they tell you about.

Twitter should be required to explain why in the world any app, much less TikTok, needs access to all this data and functionality and what happens to the data once it is collected from your fans in the background.

Another reason why TikTok would be a fit for Twitter is due to the massive copyright infringement on both platforms.

“Let me be clear: This is not about the Chinese people, and it’s certainly not about Chinese Americans. Every year, the United States welcomes more than 100,000 Chinese students and researchers into this country. For generations, people have journeyed from China to the United States to secure the blessings of liberty for themselves and their families—and our society is better for their contributions. So, when I speak of the threat from China, I mean the government of China and the Chinese Communist Party.”
