TikTok Reinstates Pro-Life Org Live Action, Says Initial Ban for ‘Multiple Community Guidelines Violations’ Was Due to ‘Human Error’

Chinese-owned social media platform TikTok said it had reinstated the account of pro-life group Live Action, after Live Action announced Friday that it had been permanently banned, without explanation.
