TikTok's Data Transparency - Limiting the Creative Center Tool

TikTok has recently limited access to its Creative Center tool, which was used to track popular hashtags, including those related to geopolitical events and the Israel-Hamas conflict. This decision restricts researchers and critics who utilized the tool for scrutinizing content on the platform. TikTok now focuses on sharing data about the top 100 hashtags across various industries, citing misuse of the search function for drawing inaccurate conclusions. This move reflects TikTok's efforts to manage its platform's influence and the challenges of balancing transparency with corporate and political pressures.
