I assumed the CEO of Reddit is a big stockholder in both Serena Williams’ penis and all the silicon valley companies. It’s a boy club and they all give each other handjobs / handouts as they sit on their billions of dollars together laughing at us peasants who made some code that took a weekend to write worth billions of dollars. Jokes on us. So I take his opinion on anything with some level of bias,
As it turns out, the CEO of reddit is not the one with Serena Williams deep up inside him, you know because she “had” his kid, but that doesn’t mean he’s not biased.
Unfortunately, I do agree with him on this one though. TikTok is the mechanism to get every phone in America turned into a camera and listening Device for China, who are notorious spies. They figured out that Americans are as simplistic as Amercia’s Got Talent or American Idol, and they just love to sing and dance or watch song and dance. Easy way to win them over, get them to sign on and to track them.
The Reddit CEO and co-founder, Steve Huffman, stated at an event on Wednesday that TikTok was “fundamentally parasitic”
The full quote is:
“Maybe I’m going to regret this, but I can’t even get to that level of thinking with them,” Huffman said. “Because I look at that app as so fundamentally parasitic, that it’s always listening, the fingerprinting technology they use is truly terrifying, and I could not bring myself to install an app like that on my phone.”
“I actively tell people, ‘Don’t install that spyware on your phone,’” he later added.
He’s got a very serious point that I always bring up when talking TikTok, but this generation of kids is so used to being put out there that they don’t care that people are watching their every move. There are actually MEMEs about it.
That said, let me pre-emptively say “HUFFMAN DIDN’T KILL HIMSELF”.
I guess he hasn’t been into all the half naked dance videos. He’d rather you be posting your smut to an /r/.
Here are some selects…
