EXCLUSIVE: Reactions Trail Users of TikTok on Hiring Internet Police to Monitor American Users

A former Chinese internet censor said he was interviewed for the role of monitoring and policing videos posted by international users of TikTok, a Chinese-owned short video app used by millions of Americans.

Liu Lipeng, who worked as an online censor in China for a decade, said he was passed over for the job in 2018 after suggesting in the interview that TikTok shouldn’t overly censor content because Americans value freedom of speech.

I suspect that when people use TikTok, it is possible that your info get to China, BUT your info is now safe from going to the US government. Your choice!

If you are an American IT expert and The US government hires you to monitor the keystrokes and habits of millions of Chinese teenagers, would that really help the US or just a waste of resources ??????

Anyone still have the illusion that they can operate independent of the Chinese government?
