TikTok chief operating officer Vanessa Pappas detailed several initiatives that are underway to help boost the platform’s accountability and transparency.

An application-programming interface is being developed to help researchers access public and anonymized data about content and activity on TikTok, enabling them to identify and assess content and trends or conduct tests. It will be made available to selected researchers later this year.

TikTok also developed a moderation system API to be made available this fall via its Transparency and Accountability Center that will give selected researchers a way to evaluate the platform’s content moderation systems and examine existing content.
