With the #RESTRICTAct, #Congress wants to continue #Trump's war on #Tiktok, banning the Chinese-owned service. How will they do this? Congress isn't clear. In practice, banning stuff on the internet is hard, especially without a national firewall:… 1/ A modified vintage editoria...

My guess is that they're thinking of ordering the #mobile #duopoly of @Google and @Apple to nuke the Tiktok app from their app stores. 3/

👀 Emulate #China by banning #TikTok?: "Republicans have come up with a national strategy to permanently lose elections for a generation: Ban a social media app called TikTok that 94 million, primarily young Americans, use." @SenRandPaul #ampFW
👀 "This GOP strategy comes while polls indicate that 71% of young women and 53% of young men voted for a Democrat for Congress. Many Dems have joined in calling for this ban but like most such issues, the blame will stick to Republicans more." #ampFW
👀 "Ban #TikTok strategy comes while GOP simultaneously complains of US social media companies canceling, censoring conservatives. W/o a hint of irony, “conservatives” now agitate to ban a platform owned by an intl. group that includes Americans." #ampFW

#réseauxsociaux et #moinsde16ans
Ce sondage va me permettre de poursuivre mon histoire d'#Oscar hier soir avec radis et cubitus.
Ma fille : "les autres ont découvert sur #TikTok que certains de nos os pouvaient se croiser et comme je n'avais pas leur réf ils m'ont dit "mais
t'a vraiment pas de culture."
Ils me font marrer à être obligés de découvrir au détour d'une vidéo un peu moins bête que les autres que quand tu bouges ton avant bras les os se croisent. On n'a pas les mêmes notions de culture."
Ses camarades 5ème passent des heures & des h.
à consommer des vidéos qui ne leur apprennent presque rien et ne les arment surtout pas pour la vraie vie.
C'est triste car un outil n'est jamais intrinsèquement mauvais.
Mais que ça me fait penser aux attaques subies sur ce réseau par @T_Fiolet.

New analysis here shows that the average #TikTok user is more likely to be exposed to content favorable to the CCP than a user of other major social media

TikTok search results for “PLA” overwhelmingly pro CCP

“Wuhan lab” lacks relevant results on TikTok, suggesting moderation Image
Leaked documents obtained by a reporter in 2019 showed that "TikTok... instruct[ed] its moderators to censor videos that mention Tiananmen Square, Tibetan independence, or the banned religious group Falun Gong." Those guidelines are no longer in use.…
That same year, a search for #hongkong on Twitter returned images of pro-democracy marchers.

Searches on TikTok revealed a different and for the CCP "more politically convenient" version of reality: playful selfies, food photos & barely a hint of unrest.…

#TikTok を部分ないし完全に禁止する国のリスト
フランス:2023.3.24、TikTokやSNSアプリに対策を講じる最新の国となり、セキュリティ上の懸念を理由に「娯楽アプリ」の行政機器へのインストールを禁止。TikTokのみならず、TwitterやInstagram、携帯ゲームや出会い系アプリにも適用される。 Image
アメリカ:政府発行全ての端末でTikTok禁止法案が上院通過、米国20以上の州が政府端末で同アプリを禁止。また、幾つかの大学でも学内の無線ネットで同アプリ使用禁止。Trump時代にTikTok禁止の大統領令も、裁判所に支持されず、現在の民主党Biden政権により撤回され遠回りとなった経緯がある。 Image

TikTok’s Confidence-Destroying Bold Glamour Filter is the Logical Product of Platforms Built for Consumerism

Rachel Griffin (@rachel_grfn) sees the beauty filter as the obvious endpoint of the underlying structural dynamics of the social media industry.…
With reference to @KathyCastorFL's comments in yesterday's #TikTok hearing in the House Energy & Commerce Committee:
"...criticizing TikTok as irresponsible or calling for it to add labels to videos where a filter is used – essentially suggesting that properly-informed users should be capable of resisting the unattainable beauty ideals they’re bombarded with – misses the bigger picture."

For ppl who are following the #Tiktok hearing at the Capitol Hill now: #Bytedance, the parent company of the social media app, established it's own Communist Party's committee in 2017.
Orders to compromise data can be ordered from the party's chain of command, not by state.
Data in Texas alone cannot safeguard it.
Third party audit of source code and algorithm will not solve it.
As long as there's a chance which a PRC-based Bytedance staff can touch upon US-based user data, the CCP chain of command can order them to extract it w/o consequences.
For more information on CCP's operation in PRC's tech companies, check out @rockngo's China Digital Times article.

As #TikTok's CEO is being grilled by the US House Committee on Energy and Commerce, it's time to cut through the noise on what the issues are with TikTok and why the USG, through #CFIUS, seems trending toward a force divestiture.
First, I cannot disclose anything about this transaction that I learned while working on CFIUS matters in the USG. Everything on this thread is based on information that is publicly available through news reporting.
The issues with Tiktok is two-fold – data security and the ability to manipulate the algorithm for propaganda. I wrote an explainer about this in the Washington Post back in 2020:…

🇫🇷 "Le conflit en #Ukraine doit se comprendre comme une guerre d'entrainement."

Retour sur l'audition de @ThomasGomart (@IFRI_), du 8 mars 2023, sur les enjeux de la prochaine LPM devant la Commission de la défense du @Senat.

🇫🇷 "Le PR se distingue très clairement de ses 4 prédécesseurs en ayant augmenté la dépense militaire [...]. Pourtant, la #LPM qui se dessine donne l'impression - au mieux - de pouvoir se maintenir au niveau qui était le nôtre précédemment." @ThomasGomart
🇫🇷 Une situation paradoxale qui "rappelle une évidence historique, malheureusement oubliée par les mandatures précédentes : on ne rattrape jamais en quelques années des décennies de désarmement." @ThomasGomart #LPM

🧵With the growing concerns about #TikTok, I finally decided to have a look to it. In this thread, I will cover a review of its privacy policy and a dynamic analysis of the Android app with @PiRogueTools and explain its limitations. Image
First of all, TikTok's privacy policy is quite explicit regarding what data is collected. Obviously, it collects the information the user provides such as profile information, contacts, payment card information or other third-party payment information. Image
Next, it collects a wide range of information such as keystroke patterns or rhythms, IP address, approx. location based on SIM card, IP or GPS location. It also detects and collects characteristics and features about the media by identifying objects and scenery. Image

Dutch government to ban use of TikTok on government phones

The government immediately advises government officials not to use apps from countries such as China and Russia on their work phones. In time, a complete ban will follow.#China #Russia #TikTok…
Minister van Huffelen says that the government goes further than discouraging 1 app. "We are opting for a structural solution that government officials can trust, with their work in a digital world. The government must be able to do its work safely, also via mobile devices."
Soon,officials will get phones on which only pre-approved apps can be installed and used. Spy-sensitive apps are banned altogether from that moment on.Exceptions are made if an app is needed for specific tasks of a government org(such as inspection&supervision or investigations).

🧵 Why the war in 🇺🇦 #Ukraine?

Beyond the #propaganda of war which makes us more stupid than we are, let us rather analyse the deep reasons of this fratricidal war.

#WarInUkraine #RussianUkrainianWar Image
1. First of all, let's leave aside any #TikTok analysis, in a #war it's always about desecrating the enemy, making him more horrible than he really is.

Ukraine is not full of Neo #Nazis, and the #Russian army is not a bunch of rapists — You won’t believe it? but it’s true.
2. Also, it’s not a language or culture war, all these micro societal fights have strictly no interest.

This is only a question of geopolitical / geographical position of #Ukraine in the world — and nothing else.

To be more convinced of this, let's go back a bit.

#TikTok, il social network cinese dove si postano video per lo più stupidi, ha sbaragliato la concorrenza (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter ecc.) tra i giovanissimi, vale a dire i cittadini elettori di domani.
Al contrario, in Cina i social network occidentali sono banditi per impedire alla gente di informarsi da fonti non governative e/o non controllabili dalla censura.
In sostanza, TikTok è una ciclopica pesca a strascico di scempiaggini e di banalità confezionate in modo seducente e distribuite con criteri scientifici ad un pubblico di ragazzini e di idioti.

TikTok ist ein Produkt der chinesischen Totalüberwachungsdiktatur. Gut wurde TikTok nun endlich bei uns verboten.

#tiktok #china #überwachung
TikTok gehört dem chinesischen Internet-Technologie­unternehmen ByteDance, einem der weltweit führenden Anwender von künstlicher Intelligenz. Seit 2015 ist es weltweit aktiv und in Europa vor allem durch das Videoportal TikTok bekannt.
Wie viele chinesische Unternehmen hat ByteDance ein internes Komitee der Kommunistischen Partei Chinas (KPCh), welches die Parteimitglieder unter den Mitarbeitern organisiert. Der Vizepräsident von ByteDance, Zhang Fuping, dient hierbei als Parteikomitee-Sekretär.

#TikTok ist Krebs... anscheinend geht gerade eine "Challenge" rum, Vorstellungen des Films #Creed3 bis zum Abbruch zu stören. Bundesweit berichten Kinos von schwerster Randale bis hin zu Krawallen, die ein Einschreiten der Polizei nötig machen. /MS…
Nun haben Jugendkrawalle eine Tradition bis mindestens in die 50er ("Halbstarkenkrawalle") und die englische Wikipedia führt gar eine Liste an historischen Internet-"Challenges"... /MS…
Dennoch muss sich #TikTok - wie zuvor auch #YouTube und andere Plattformen, man erinnere sich z.B. an "Happy Slapping", "Tide Pod Challenge" und andere fragwürdige virale Aktionen - der Frage stellen: wird auf der Plattform genug moderiert? /MS

A tenor de un hilo en el que explicaba la existencia de una App (sin promocionarla ni facilitar nombre) que permitía burlar la vigilancia familiar y los controles parentales, una lectora se plantea que cómo habría averiguado el menor del caso su existencia.
Preparen el ALMAX 👇👇
Este es un viejo conocido.

Por supuesto, dado que la mayoría de su público son menores y que lo que divulga son usos trampa/oscuros/deshonestos/atajos de la informática, ¿en qué red creéis que opera?

Por supuesto: #TikTok
Se trata de un influencer muy popular. Tiene conocimientos informáticos de buen nivel (aunque lo que enseña tampoco es que lo sitúe al nivel que pretende). Nunca explica ningún concepto.
Se dedica a enseñar a sus followers a "hacer trampas".

-Profesor Duchement, a nuestro hijo le han hecho phishing y nos han estafado.
-¿Desean ustedes que investigue la estafa?
-No. Deseamos que averigüe cómo se han puesto en contacto con él y recabado los datos. No debería haber manera. Tiene 11 años.
#CasoDeInformáticaForense 👇👇
Conozco así el Expediente Jordi, un niño de Barcelona que, de alguna forma indeterminada, ha acabado dando sus datos a phishers profesionales.
Unos 3.000€ han cargado en la tarjeta de su padre y todos se preguntan cómo (el niño incluido).
⚠️ Por supuesto, como aviso siempre, Jordi no se llama Jordi, no es de Barcelona y en este relato hay tanto detalle alterado, eliminado o agregado para proteger las identidades, que el caso debe ser leído como ficción.
