Twitter’s Meme Game Is on Point After TikTok Ban
TikTok, formerly known as Musical.ly, is a Chinese app that lets the user share and livestream short videos. The app added more than 8.86 crore Indian users just in the first quarter of 2019.
After facing flak for ‘sleazy’ content by concerned parents, the Indian judiciary decided to step in and declare a total ban on TikTok, ordering Google Play Store and Apple App Store to take it down.
After noting that children were being exposed to “pornographic and inappropriate” content on TikTok, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, following the Supreme Court’s orders, ordered Google and Apple to remove the app from their stores.
But after the ban, Twitter resorted to what it knows best – memes. Users were quick to pull up some clippings from the app and blamed them for the ban.
