As the European Parliament elections approach in June, TikTok says it is expanding efforts to combat misinformation and foreign interference.

It plans to launch localized “election centers” in every EU member state providing fact-checked information in partnership with electoral and civil groups.

TikTok employs over 6,000 content moderators focused on the EU.

While TikTok says it aims to ensure the separation of facts from fiction, concerns remain about the company’s ties to China.

In the US, the Biden campaign has embraced TikTok despite the app being banned on government devices and concerns about data privacy and national security.

The first Biden TikTok video showed him answering softball Super Bowl questions, with his campaign embracing the “Dark Brandon” meme on the platform to reach younger voters.

“Chiefs or Niners?” Biden was asked, to which he said, “Two great quarterbacks. It’s hard to decide, but if I didn’t say I was for the Eagles, then I’d be sleeping alone. My wife’s a Philly girl.”

“Deviously plotting to rig the season so the Chiefs would make the Super Bowl or the Chiefs just being a good football team?” Biden was later asked.

“I’d get in trouble if I told you,” Biden said.
