You're probably right. It's not only teens on there, all retired oldies seem to love tiktok and they can vote.
But it's still the right thing to do with a Chinese government owned (ok, partly) spying app with a propaganda official on the company's board.

What about teemu? My dad is hooked on that! It's apparently tied to the Chinese Communist party and old people can't resist a deal! Yikes!!

Teens don’t vote. People 18-25 don’t vote much. No sweat for both parties.

Tiktok is too nosy for me. It doesn't need to know my location, access my other stuff or install new stuff. I don't see why it needs to run at startup either.

Have you gone viral yet with any of your t-shirt reveals on Tik Tok? Do you upload them there too?

Is your Mazda dealership on Tik Tok? When are you going to become GM?

I’ve put a couple of tik tok but tik tok doesn’t have a good hair metal song selection!

Fuck Tik-Tok. I watch Tik Toks when they become Instagram reels two weeks later, like a fucking adult.

No one is going to change their vote over Tiktok. No one's voting Trump because their source of puppies and bikini girl on trampoline videos is gone.

If they ban it, people will move to something else.

Besides, it's well on the path to enshittification. Something less enshittified would have replaced it anyways.

I can't imagine that any rational individual would consider 'the ban of TikTok' as a deciding factor or even as a minor influence to their voting strategy.

Years of veneration of a barefaced-lying shitbag snake-oil salesman, plus the Capitol attack and anything to do with Qanon shows there are an incredibly large number of irrational individuals in America. Some of them vote Democrat too, and every country has their share. Today's Doonesbury sums it up nicely: https://www.gocomics.com/doonesbury/2024/03/24

I can almost bet the farm that it isn't Biden himself posting on tik tok or Instagram. It's his handlers. He probably can't fold an umbrella.

If you are basing your vote based on some lame kid's app, instead of the issues that matter, you need a mental health check.
Seems to me the OP is lacking a brain cell or two.

He is in the right age group though. Tiktok is boomer central and insta and fb are not far behind.

Stuff like this always makes me shake my head. Its like people believe the president is a dictator, and has magic powers, and can do and pass what ever laws he wishes.

They seem to forget, first it has to get through the house, and the senate, and even on some occasions, when they use the executive order route, you can be sure it will be challenged in court, and the court can say, yea, you cant do that or yes, thats fine.

From time to time, I see the whole, blame the president for gas prices. See that sometimes on my facebook page. Um, you must be a special kind of stupid. OPEC, sets the crude oil prices. Its kinda up to the countries that produce most of the crude oil how much they are gonna put out every day, and how much they want for a barrel of it.

Now it seems its the whole border thing. The border issue has been around for a long long time. Its never gonna stop. America is not some tiny island, if people wanna come to America, there gonna Come to America, and stay. Jesus, if your gonna bitch about politics. Educate yourself first, it just makes you look stupid.
I'm finding it difficult to masturbate to this. I'm trying, I just have so little to work with...

The main person who spearheaded this entire movement to ban TikTok is the same cunt who manages to get major, major backing behind her anti-abortion and anti-critical race theory campaigns. Typical xenophobic, Right wing bullshit. Yeah, there are Democrats in favor of it too, but it's mostly your typical freedom-loving book-banners doing the heavy lifting, here. Like Joe Biden gives a fuck.

Seems like some people have figured it out. Make life poor, miserable and dangerous for those already in the country and nobody will want to come. I mean, Afghanistan and Somalia don't have a border problem, do they?
