July 16, 2022 from 15:30 am to 17:00 am
Description: In this session, we will present disinformation work and how it exists in and outside of Tiktok. Through a variety of exercises, participants will dive deeper into nuclear mis & disinformation by identifying examples of disinformation and conducting their very own investigation on how to debunk profiles and videos. It is advised to come to the session with the TikTok app downloaded beforehand (laptop is not necessary but can be useful).
