Trade War


  Social media is what it is
Social Media and nothing else.
AII the attempt to make it something
Else never really worked and from
The look of things would never work.

Tik tok is an ingenious social media
And all the attempts to quieten it's
Success through political noise and
All the other concerns being raised
Did not succeed in turning it into what
It is never.

Facebook and the rest of the other social
The media conglomerate of the USA seems to be playing second fiddle to TikTok cos the government was indirectly through the their effort, end up marketing tik tok to high heavens ignorantly and otherwise.

Newsbreak came with money and was
Trying to through self-effort to became
What TikTok from the same kingdom is
Today without success. They were
 marketing themself or trying to call the interest of the host govert to themselves.

But their self and money effort failed.
The government refused to be swayed. tik tok, full of pictures they claimed for Newsbreak believed they could make Govert to focus on them cos they believe words speak more than images but the host govert thinks otherwise.

Goading was more like it from them
The act of forcing one to open his
Mouth when he is not interested. Trade
War just like other wars these days is what is fought With less noise in different other ways not Seen or obvious to the rest of the world. Tik tok must be what they call it.

Trolling is what they said is forcing many
Out of Twitter even before the new owner
Settled the forced purchase in court.
Don't you wonder about that kind of move and the Allegations that come from it?
How come no locals are lining up to buy
Tik tok? Govert need to buy it themselves.

Politics works in different ways these days.
American political sector is educating people more than they would ever believe possible. Not many are political novices like they said used to go after Trump suffered in that political arena in his entertainment ways.

He is hewed from the same social media log. Are you still doubting it? You can continue at your own detriment. Many things are what they look like while many are not.
