■■■■□ Disinformation campaign thwarted by TikTok.

TikTok has revealed it has stopped 15 covert influence operations, including a Chinese campaign targeting American audiences with content favorable to Chinese politics and culture.

The platform discovered networks of fake accounts that imitated American authors to spread pro-China and pro-Iran narratives. These operations were part of a broader attempt to influence global political discourse, with some networks focusing on influencing political debates in various countries.
