Since the Biden administration took office they’ve been using the social media platform TikTol. It’s been well documented that the Biden administration has used TikTok influcencers to get out their message.
Well, things are changing.
TikTok’s youthful users in America have turned on Biden.
“president’s popularity with young voters is already sliding because of Israel’s war against Hamas,” Fox News Channel’s Jacqui Heinrich reported Wednesday morning that “the administration is starting to seriously fret about trending terms on TikTok like ‘silent depression'” that are catching fire among young people also feeling the negative impacts of Bidenomics.”
The Biden campaign was really hoping to flood TikTok with pro-Biden messaging but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of interest from users anymore who seemed to be getting more frustrated with Joe everyday.
Oh have things changed from a little over a year ago when Biden planned to prop up his messaging using TikTOk.
A report from Townhall in March 2022 reports how the White House uses TikTok:
The White House hosted a Zoom call on Thursday to push its messaging — which has included blaming Putin for inflation caused by Biden’s economic and energy policies — to more than two-dozen TikTok stars. “Jen Psaki briefed the influencers about the United States’ strategic goals in the region and answered questions on distributing aid to Ukrainians, working with NATO and how the United States would react to a Russian use of nuclear weapons,” explained the Post’s report.
“After the call, several influencers said they felt more empowered to debunk misinformation and communicate effectively about the crisis,” The Post continued. “TikTok has been overrun with false and misleading news since the war broke out, and, on Thursday, the company said it finally would begin labeling state-controlled media on its platform,” the report added.
Ironic that TikTok would begin labeling state-controlled media given the fact that the app itself is state-controlled by the Chinese Communist Party.
But while some TikTok stars felt empowered by the White House’s attempt to turn them into Biden messaging propagandists, others were not so thrilled. One invited participant “said that he thought the overall tone of the briefing was too soft and that officials dodged hard questions. ‘The energy of the call felt like a press briefing for kindergartners,’ he said.”
Funny what happens when reality hits you in the face.
