Social media video app, TikTok is aiming to become the first platform to be political ad-free.
Unlike other social networking services, TikTok is aiming to become the first platform to be political ad-free.
As Mashable reports, Blake Chandlee, Vice President of Global Business Solutions, said that TikTok will not allow political ads of any kind on the platform, including paid political ads, advocacy ads, or issue ads.
However, this does not indicate that political content will also be absent from TikTok. Political candidates will be allowed to have their own profiles where they can post content. (ANI)

.@tiktok_us announces it won’t allow political, advocacy or issue ads, to preserve the app's “light-hearted and irreverent feeling that makes it such a fun place to spend time.” https://t.co/SZc4qDVWGo— Michelle Ye Hee Lee (@myhlee) October 4, 2019
