ByteDance, known from the video platform TikTok, has signed the European code of conduct against hate speech. That should ensure that platforms like TikTok do everything they can to remove hate messages and calls to violence.

TikTok is the ninth platform to sign the code of the European Commission. Other major platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Snapchat have already done this.

The European Commission is pleased that TikTok has joined that list. EU Commissioner Didier Reynders (Justice) said in a statement that “By signing the code of conduct, TikTok clearly shows that it wants to ban hate messages”.

The code of conduct has existed since 2016. Annual evaluations of various platforms show that now 90 percent of all reported content is viewed within 24 hours and that 71 percent of it is removed because of hate speech.

There is currently a lot to be done about the video platform. US President Donald Trump has announced that TikTok will be banned in the US if the platform remains in the hands of the Chinese company ByteDance. That is why a takeover of the company by an American party is now being considered.
