TikTok creates Twitter account to combat misinformation

TikTok has created a Twitter account in an effort to combat misinformation about the company.

The tech firm has come under fire in recent months - but TikTok has now launched a Twitter account in a bid to "shine a light on the facts and set the record straight".

TikTok said: "We are taking another step to continue to build trust with our TikTok community by delivering the facts - in our own words and in the words of leading experts across cybersecurity, media and academia - because we neither support nor stand for the spread of misinformation on our platform, or about our platform."

TikTok has previously denied the app is a threat to the US, and has also distanced itself from Douyin, the Chinese version of the app.

In response to recent accusations, TikTok previously said: "TikTok is led by an American CEO, with hundreds of employees and key leaders across safety, security, product, and public policy here in the US.

"We have no higher priority than promoting a safe and secure app experience for our users. We have never provided user data to the Chinese government, nor would we do so if asked."
