  1. considering how influential the platform has become in the music scene, it’ll be interesting to see how artists, esp those who found a large part of their success through tiktok, react.

    a lot of small ‘indie’ songs blew up on tiktok so I wonder if the hot 100 will see fewer small artists rising to the top 40

  2. TikTok users that have been making huge profits and expanding their brands outside of this platform must feel very relieved that they’ve been able to do so.

    Somebody check on Mr. Derulo. Billboard must be glad they won’t need to worry about making specific TikTok rules/guidelines for the charts. My oh my.

  3. “As far as TikTok is concerned we’re banning them from the United States.” ” I have that authority. I can do it with an executive order”

    Yeah im not sure Trump knows what hes talking about. I think this headline isn’t too accurate because Trump’s word is not trustworthy.

  4. Damn hes really gonna ban Kesha’s most popular song? Hasn’t she been through enough?

    i can excuse Trump’s racism but i draw the line at not letting me wake up in the mornin’ feelin’ like P Diddy

  5. So how exactly does an app get banned? I assume it disappears from the app store but from every phone too? I heard WeChat is also on the chopping block but if people rely on it to communicate with family/friends back in China then I suspect most will use VPNs to circumvent the ban.

  6. TikTok should just announce they’re sold to an American company now and it would look bad for Trump. I didn’t expect him to go this far tho. At least it will make good memes.

  7. The fact that Trump might actually be able to do this is so scary. And fuck everyone who’s like “finally he does something I agree with.” Just because you don’t like some app for children doesn’t mean the POTUS should be able to fucking ban it.

  8. This is the one app that’s getting me through the current times. It’s harmless, fun entertainment and I’m going to be so upset if I won’t have that to look forward to anymore.

  9. Fwiw tik tok content was starting to get really bizarre this week, idk if it’s just me or if other people have noticed this

    because I’ve seen people wearing fish heads on their fingers, several flies getting crushed in syringes, what might have been a murder, what might have been a body disposal, someone’s bare balls on a billiards table, someone’s bare balls under a mac and cheese filter, a cockroach being tied to a firework and exploding in the sky, a lady combing two foot long eyelashes and a dissolving fish all within the last three days on my for you page

    It reminds me of that weird /r/elsagate stuff on youtube but it’s live action

  10. TikTok is pretty bad, shunning LGBT and pro democracy messages. But this is FOR SURE the wrong way to do this, if any thing it further disenfranchises the young people as their resentment grow.

  11. I’m really mixed about this. On one hand, I’m glad that the Chinese government has one less way to get information about Americans, but on the other hand I’m not super comfortable with the president having the power to ban an app.
