Social media Program TikTok said on Thursday it removed Greater than 49 million videos from its Stage in the second half of the year for violating its guidelines.
These videos accounted for less than 1 percent of the overall published on the stage and dropped under categories like”violent and picture content, hate speech and adult nudity”, it stated in a report released on its site.
