'TikTok Will Warn Users Before Posting "Inappropriate or Unkind" Comments' by Jon Porter

Jon Porter writes the following for The Verge:

TikTok is rolling out a pop-up today that’s designed to warn users before they post a comment that might be ‘inappropriate or unkind.’ The new feature is one of two being announced that are designed to ‘promote kindness’ on the service. The other is Filter All Comments, so that they only appear once individually approved.

The new unkind warning appears if TikTok believes a comment might violate its community guidelines. ‘Would you like to reconsider posting this?’ the pop-up box reads, before encouraging users to ‘Edit’ it, or ‘Post anyway.’ …

TikTok has also announced it’s partnering with the Cyberbullying Research Center as it works on more anti-bullying initiatives.
