Policing Political Messages Online

Influencers continue to innovate but a big hammer is coming.

From Fortune Newsletter: TikTok plans to stop content creators from posting videos that contain paid political messages, part of the short-form video platform’s efforts to reduce violations of its policies in the run-up to the 2022 midterm elections, Reuters reported Wednesday. The ByteDance unit has banned paid political ads on its platform since 2019, but political campaigns have worked around the prohibition by paying influencers to make statements on behalf of candidates. Meta officials also said Tuesday that they will institute a blackout on political ads in the week leading up to November’s midterms.
