SAN FRANCISCO: Social media app TikTok said it removed more than 49 million videos from its platform in the second half of last year for violating its guidelines.
These videos accounted for less than one percent of the total posted on the platform and fell under categories such as “violent and graphic content, hate speech and adult nudity”, it said in a report released on its website.
About one-third of the videos were from India, followed by the United States and Pakistan, it added.

The short-form video making app also decided to exit the Hong Kong market after China enforced a sweeping new national security law for the semi-autonomous city.
TikTok launched a new platform to court small business advertisers. The platform, however, was fraught with challenges, especially after the Trump administration threatened this week to impose a ban on China-based social media apps.
