Getting your fans to follow you to another social media app isn't easy.
In the age of social media, Twitter is one of the primary ways governments and politicians speak to their constituents–and how they can potentially spread propaganda. Following a similar move by Facebook, Twitter will soon begin to label accounts strongly associated with governments. Twitter is providing two distinct labels: One for “key government officials, including foreign ministers, institutional entities, ambassadors, official spokespeople, and key diplomatic leaders.” The company says it’s focusing primarily on senior officials and other amplified voices One for “state-affiliated media entities, their editors-in-chief, and/or their senior staff “ If you click on one of the labels, you’ll… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Twitter
Mark Zuckerberg's fortune surpassed $100 billion after Facebook launched its TikTok competitor in the US. That makes the tech titan only the third current centi-billionaire on Earth. In June, advertisers including Verizon, Honda, and Ben & Jerry's boycotted Facebook over the social network's lack of hate-speech moderation. The boycott briefly sunk both Facebook's share price and CEO Mark Zuckerberg's net worth. Zuckerberg drives an affordable car and wears basic clothes, but appears to splurge on real estate, buying houses and then buying the surrounding properties for privacy.  Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan are generous philanthropists, investing billions in childhood education and medical research that they hope will cure all diseases in their children's lifetimes.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Mark Zuckerberg is richer than he's ever been. Facebook's shares are on a tear after the company launched a new Instagram feature that will compete with TikTok in the US. The move propelled Zuckerberg's personal net worth over $100 million for the first time. Before the announcement, Zuckerberg had been having a tough summer. Zuckerberg faced fierce criticism for refusing to moderate Facebook posts in which President Trump called civil rights protesters "thugs" and suggested violence when he wrote "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" in the wake of George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officers. As a result, civil rights organizations including NAACP, Color of Change, and Anti-Defamation League asked advertisers to stop paying for advertisements on Facebook. Many agreed, sending both Facebook's share price and Zuckerberg's net worth into a freefall.

Jake Paul is a 23-year-old YouTube star who got his start on video-sharing app Vine. The former Disney Channel actor has nearly 20 million subscribers on YouTube, where he posts vlogs and pranks. Paul appeared to marry fellow YouTuber Tana Mongeau in 2019, but it was later revealed that the marriage was fake.  The FBI raided Paul's Calabasas, California mansion on Wednesday as part of an ongoing investigation into unspecified "criminal acts" regarding Paul's May visit to a Scottsdale, Arizona, mall, an agency spokesperson said.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Jake Paul, 23, is one-half of the Paul brothers, two of the most recognizable and controversial YouTube stars. Paul garnered online fame on Vine before even graduating high school, and found early notoriety as a star on Disney Channel.  Since then, Paul has gained millions of followers across social media who watch his outlandish pranks and vlogs, often featuring his many friends and collaborators in his Calabasas, California, mansion.  Forbes estimated in 2017 that he was worth $11.5 million. But his career has also been marked by a string of controversies. Most recently, Paul's mansion was raided by the FBI as part of an ongoing investigation related to his presence at an Arizona mall in May that was looted and vandalized. Law enforcement officers seized several guns from the property, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department confirmed to Insider.  Here's everything you need to know about YouTube star Jake Paul:SEE ALSO: Logan Paul reveals his plans to become a professional boxer, release a music album, and try out TikTok in the future Jake Paul was born on January 17, 1997, and grew up in a suburb of Cleveland with his parents and older brother (and fellow YouTuber), Logan.

Jake, who was 10 at the time, said he and his brother would film "comedic bits" around the house. "We were posting them to YouTube and just generally having a good time, and the people at school thought we were funny," he told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer in 2016.   As a sophomore in high school, Jake Paul joined the wrestling team. He got "really serious" about it, and video making with his brother took a back seat. Source: Cleveland Plain-Dealer However, that changed when the video-sharing app Vine came out in 2012. Paul said he downloaded it "the first day it came out," and he gradually rose in popularity on the app. By the time Vine shut down in early 2017, Paul had 5.3 million followers and nearly 2 billion video plays.

"We knew we had to move to Los Angeles if we wanted to pursue this as a full-time thing," Jake Paul said. "We immediately started taking acting and improv classes and making connections, while still doing the video thing."

He also scored small roles in films like "Mono" and "Airplane Mode," in which his brother was the main character.

Paul said his character, Dirk Mann, was "a perfect fit" for him. In the show, Dirk was an online video star that hosted a channel where he performed crazy stunts and challenges.

His channel hosts videos of over-the-top stunts, wild vlogs, and Jackass-style challenges. One of his earliest attention-grabbing stunts took place when he was invited to the White House in January 2017 for a social media event, along with other online stars. Paul proceeded to sneak away from the crowd, hideout for hours in the White House bathroom, and sneak out in the middle of the night without being caught by security.

Paul later revealed that the couple was "open." "Any wedding I have, if I have three more f---ing weddings, I really wouldn't want to do it on paper because I think that legally binding yourself to someone takes away the love," Mongeau said. Mongeau released a YouTube video on December 29 where she hinted that her and Paul's relationship had gone downhill since their wedding night — which she called "just hell." Days later, the couple announced they were "taking a break" from their relationship "to focus on our own very crazy lives."

In May, Paul was charged with criminal trespassing and unlawful assembly after he and his videographer Andrew Blue had both posted footage on Instagram that showed chaos and vandalism at the Scottsdale Fashion Square mall in Arizona. Paul denied the allegations on Twitter. "For context, we spent the day doing our part to peacefully protest one of the most horrid injustices our country has ever seen, which led us to being tear-gassed for filming the events and brutality that were unfolding in Arizona," he said in a May 31 tweet.    Paul came under fire for partying during the COVID-19 pandemic — and even drew ire from the city of Calabasas' mayor. As cases of the novel coronavirus continued to spike throughout Los Angeles, many influencers and creators — including Paul himself — continued to party and flout social-distancing guidelines. Paul hosted a day-long party at his Calabasas home in July as he filmed a new music video. Guests of the massive party documented their day on Instagram, showing many of them without face coverings both inside and outside of the home. Bryce Hall, Mongeau, and Arman 'Armani' Izadi were among the guests.  Tweet Embed: //twitter.com/mims/statuses/1283238582195384322?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw NEW: The mayor of Calabasas & neighbors tell me they're outraged after they say YouTube celebrity @jakepaul threw a massive party at his mansion on Saturday.

"They're having this large party, no social distancing, no masks, it's just a big, huge disregard for everything that everybody is trying to do to get things back to functioning," she said.  In an interview with Insider, Paul said he wasn't sure if he would give up partying during the pandemic. After his party stirred up controversy, Paul told Insider's Kat Tenbarge in a phone call on July 31 that "everything is cool" with the Calabasas mayor. "I don't know what to think of it, to be honest. I don't think anyone really does," Paul said of the pandemic. "No one has answers, our leadership is failing us, and everyone kind of just doesn't know what to do. But I personally am not the type of person who's gonna sit around and not live my life."  On Aug. 5, Paul's Calabasas mansion was searched by the FBI as part of an ongoing investigation related to the Scottsdale mall incident, a spokesperson for the agency's Phoenix field office told Insider.     The search was an execution of a federal search warrant. Los Angeles Sheriff's Department officers assisted the FBI's search, a spokesperson said, transporting several guns from the property. The FBI could not comment on whether the guns were being used as evidence in the investigation because of the sealed affidavit.  Agents in Las Vegas also searched the mansion of 'Armani' Izadi, Paul's longtime friend and collaborator who also officiated his faux wedding with Mongeau in 2019. Soon after the raid on his home, Izadi posted Instagram story videos with several bikini-clad women at the hot-pink mansion.  Izadi is an accused pimp who has pleaded guilty to attempted battery with substantial bodily harm, The Daily Beast reported in 2018.  In 2013, Izadi was indicted on 20 counts of pimping, robbery, battery, and kidnapping. Investigators described a "prostitution ring" that Izadi would lure women into under false pretenses. "Izadi lured women to his prostitution ring with promises of immense wealth, his companionship, and most of all, his protection," the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported in 2013 after reviewing police records.  Izadi took a plea deal, pleading guilty to one count of pandering, the legal term for pimping, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.   In an interview with the YouTube drama reporter Daniel Keem (a.k.a. Keemstar), Adam Quinn, a former manager of Izadi and Paul's YouTuber collective Team 10, said that he left his job because of Izadi's allegedly nefarious behavior.

The action was apparently triggered by Instagram‘s related hashtags, which direct users to content related to their previous hashtag searches.

Starz has added streaming subscribers and reduced cancellations, even as legacy-media giants like WarnerMedia and Peacock launch rival offerings.  Two top Starz execs told Business Insider that comarketing with platforms including Amazon Prime Video and Hulu has been key to that growth. "We're going to market with them in a lot of instances to try to grab subscribers together," Alison Hoffman, Starz' president of domestic networks, told Business Insider. The premium-TV service, which hired a new content chief in May, is also ordering more seasons of shows like "P-Valley" and a wide-range of new dramas geared toward its core audience of women to keep the moment going. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Premium-TV network Starz is facing more competition in the streaming space from new entrants like HBO Max, Peacock, and Apple TV Plus. But its streaming audience has continued to grow, reaching in March new heights of 6.8 million subscriber in the US and 10.6 million globally, including its international version StarzPlay. Subscription-analytics firm Antenna also found that, while Starz's US rate of conversion from free trials to subscriptions was lower than some other major streaming services, people who paid to subscribe were more likely stick with Starz than its direct competitors. Starz had the lowest pace of cancellations, or churn, among premium-TV rivals including HBO and Showtime from April to June, according to the July report. Starz also told Business Insider that cancellations were down year-over-year in recent months, and users were watching for longer. Part of Starz's growth is due to the pandemic, which has people spending more time at home and streaming video. But two top Starz execs also told Business Insider that the company has been partnering with new streaming entrants to nab more subscribers. Those players are willing to work with Starz because it's so far resisted the trend of expanding into a general-audience streaming service, and sells itself alongside those other platforms. "We really are sticking to that premium model, which also allows us to partner with a lot of these entrants," Alison Hoffman, Starz' president of domestic networks, told Business Insider. "We're going to market with them in a lot of instances to try to grab subscribers together." Hoffman, who was Starz's marketing chief before being promoted to her current role in April, said Starz is comarketing its service with well-heeled streamers like Hulu, Apple TV Plus, and Amazon Prime Video.  Those streamers, incidentally, have been among the heaviest advertisers in the streaming-TV category since the pandemic hit, as Business Insider has reported. Each aired TV ads worth north of $100 million during the second quarter, according to data from iSpot.TV. Hulu also promoted Starz as an add-on service in recent digital-ad campaign, as Business Insider reported based on data from Pathmatics. And, in November, as Disney was blocking rival Netflix from advertising on many of its TV networks, it was promoting Starz on Disney Plus and ESPN Plus, as The Verge first reported. C0marketing with other channels served Starz well in the pay-TV ecosystem, when it would sell in bundles with other premium-TV networks HBO or Showtime, on top of basic cable. Starz simply translated it to the streaming world.  "The more things change, the more they stay the same," Hoffman said. "We're really sticking to our knitting." Starz is doubling down on its core strategy when it comes to programming, as well. In May, the company brought on former CBS exec Christina Davis as its head of original programming. She is helping expand Starz's slate of dramas geared toward audiences it says have been traditionally underserved by premium TV, like women, Black, Latinx, and LGBTQ viewers. The company solidified that approach after its historical drama "The White Queen" hit in 2013, and set the stage for dramas like "Outlander" that came after. "We saw this influx of women viewers and they were passionate and they were buzzing on social media," Hoffman said. "We said, 'Nobody is doing this and there's such passion and there's such attachment and evangelism, because people aren't finding these voices on premium.'" Starz is sharpening that focus now to stand out amid the noise in streaming.  Davis said she's looking for stories that go deeper into character than much of what she was able to shepherd in in the broadcast world. "I've always been jealous of the outlets that get to actually tell these brilliant stories about brilliant characters that are female and diverse," Davis said. "The stuff that I'm most proud of, I could see on Starz, like 'The Good Wife,' and shows like that, that really get to dig deeper into character exploration and tell a very distinct, potentially provocative story." Davis is meeting, virtually, with a wide range of writers from the traditional-TV sphere, as well as creators outside of that bubble, given that first-time showrunners like Katori Hall have created huge hits for the network.  Starz recently ordered a second season of Hall's "P-Valley," a drama about the strip-club scene in Mississippi that made waves after it launched in July. It also renewed the crime drama "Hightown" and set a September premiere date for its "Power" spinoff, "Power Book II: Ghost." She's also learning to give those creators space to create. "What I'm noticing is that we're able to let the creators tell these stories," Davis said. "Instead of noting them to death, just let them tell their story and let the passion come out." Starz released 14 original series in the last year, the company said. It currently has about 20 shows in development, compared with the 50 to 60 series Davis said she would typically develop during an average broadcast season, 10 of which would make it to pilot and roughly four of which would get series orders. Davis is also starting to think more globally about programming, as Starz has expanded to 50 countries through its international streaming service, StarzPlay. Starz announced this week its first set of international originals, including local-language coproductions coming out of Spain and Mexico. "It does feel like audiences around the world are really hungry for great drama and stories well told, with complex narratives," Hoffman said.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: 7 secrets about Washington, DC landmarks you probably didn't know

Addison Rae Easterling, 19, is one of the top TikTok influencers in the world with over 54 million followers on the app. She began posting videos in July 2019 for fun and by December she decided to go all-in and moved out to Los Angeles from Louisiana. Easterling is known for her dance videos on TikTok and for being a member of the popular group the Hype House. She spoke with Business Insider in April about her rapid success online and how she is building a larger business with merchandise and lucrative brand partnerships.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. This article was originally published on April 16 and has been updated to reflect Forbes' estimate of Easterling's earnings. Before Addison Rae Easterling had millions of people watching her on TikTok, she was gearing up for her first year of college in her home state, Louisiana. "I initially found out about TikTok through a lot of young girls at my school and in my dance studio," Easterling, now 19, told Business Insider in April. "I remember being in a few of them, and after a while I downloaded it, not thinking I was going to post."  She eventually posted a video for fun in July 2019 that landed on TikTok's homepage, the "For You Page," she said. "I had never experienced that many likes or views," she said, and she continued to upload videos of herself dancing alone, with friends, or with her mom. In short order, she would experience more TikTok likes and views than nearly anyone on the planet. In only a few months, Easterling has become not only one of the biggest stars on TikTok, but one of the biggest stars across the internet, known to her fans as Addison Rae. Easterling has over 54 million TikTok followers, 24 million Instagram followers, and millions of views on her YouTube channel. And with her star continuing to rise, those numbers will no doubt be higher by the time you read this. Easterling's TikTok business has also been growing at a wild pace, from lucrative sponsorship deals with brands like American Eagle to merchandise. Her business earned an estimated $5 million in the last year, making her the highest-earning TikTok star right now, according to a Forbes estimate published in August.  What's her secret? Was she simply the one most beloved by TikTok's inscrutable algorithm? There is always a bit of luck when someone sees the kind of overnight success Easterling did — like when her dance to Mariah Carey's "Obsessed" caught Carey's attention and helped boost her budding fame. But there are other elements that made Easterling particularly suited to rise along with TikTok. Easterling has been dancing competitively since she was six years old, which has helped her put a spin on many of TikTok's viral "dance challenges." She was also able to go all-in on TikTok a few months after her follower count began to catch fire, and her family has enthusiastically supported her online career, especially her mom who appears in a lot of her videos and runs her own TikTok page with nearly nine million followers. Easterling has a knack for connecting with the right people, as well. She has collaborated with a lot of other influencers on videos, like Kourtney Kardashian and her son, and with YouTube celebrities like David Dobrik and James Charles. And she became a member of TikTok's first mega-popular group, the Hype House. All this has led to Easterling turning a fun hobby into a lucrative career — one that is only increasing as TikTok continues to cement itself as the platform of choice for Generation Z, and its homegrown stars move to the forefront of pop culture, despite political controversy. Easterling's rapid rise on TikTok  Easterling grew up dancing and watching Vine clips and episodes of "Dance Moms" with her friends.  She started competitively dancing when she was six and trained in many styles of dance like ballet, hip hop, jazz, and tap, she said.  "Dancing has always been a huge part of my life and honestly, I contribute so much of my TikTok growth to me being raised as a dancer," she said.  While Easterling was in her first semester at Louisiana State University, she was starting to get recognized on campus for her TikTok videos, which she said was "the craziest thing." "It didn't really bother me that I was doing TikTok and people knew it in my classes," she added. In the fall, she flew out to California with her mom and filmed a video for the prominent celebrity information site, Famous Birthdays, and that's when she began meeting up with other creators. After that trip, she'd fly out to Los Angeles over the weekend almost every two weeks, she said. At the end of October 2019, about three months into posting videos, Easterling's TikTok account gained over one million followers. She decided to leave LSU in late November. "I remember that's when it changed for me," she said. "I knew I wanted to take it more seriously and expand it to other platforms. I uploaded a video to YouTube and got really active on Instagram." Moving out to Los Angeles In December, Easterling moved out to Los Angeles and eventually her family bought a house there. They currently split their time between California and Louisiana, she said. Similar to other top creators, like Charli D'Amelio (76 million TikTok followers), Easterling's parents and siblings are all active on TikTok. Easterling said she's close with her family and is happy to have them be a part of her social-media rise, especially since they help keep her grounded. "You are who you hang out with and these are the people who are impacting my mind and work ethic the most," she said. "We're always filming," she said. "My house is never boring."  From viral success to a lucrative career path  Easterling has worked with companies like Reebok and L'Oreal on brand deals. She is signed with the Hollywood talent agency WME, and they work to connect her with top brands and other business opportunities like developing a content strategy, sourcing and negotiating deals, and exploring traditional-media opportunities. Influencers typically make a big chunk of their money through sponsorships and by selling consumer products to followers.  Easterling collaborated with the retail brand iamkoko.la in March on a limited apparel collection. And she launched  a merchandise line with the popular influencer ecommerce company Fanjoy, which handles merch sales for top creators like Jake Paul, David Dobrik, and Tana Mongeau. Overall, Easterling is planning to expand her business by becoming more involved in the beauty and hair space, she said, and brand herself beyond being "just an influencer." In July, she partnered with American Eagle on the brand's back-to-school campaign, and she launched a weekly podcast exclusive to Spotify with her mom. Later this month, Easterling will be releasing beauty products through her new makeup line, Item Beauty, which she cofounded with the beauty startup Madeby.  "This is a huge blessing and huge opportunity that's literally based off the people who support me and how much they interact with me," she said of her influencer career. "I've really valued the relationship with my supporters and I always try to comment back to my supporters and put all of my time and energy into that."

Nikola, an upstart electric-vehicle maker that's worth $10 billion, released its first quarterly financial report this week.  The results largely disappointed investors and sent shares tumbling.  The company is pre-revenue, and working on multiple upcoming vehicle models, but did manage to bring in $36,000. Buried in a regulatory filing, Nikola revealed that money was from installing solar panels for its founder, Trevor Milton.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Investors were largely disappointed by electric-vehicle startup Nikola's first earnings announcement this week. The company, which went public in June via a merger with a special purpose acquisition company (or SPAC), has yet to sell a production vehicle despite soaring stock valuations as the electric vehicle race further ignites. And buried in a regulatory filing the same day was another detail: where its $36,000 in revenue came from. Turns out it was all from installing solar panels bought by founder and executive chairman Trevor Milton. "During the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 the Company recorded solar revenues of $0.03 million and $0.04 million, respectively, for the provision of solar installation services to the Executive Chairman, which are billed on time and materials basis," the filing, first spotted by the Financial Times and CNBC, says. The company also disclosed a $70,000 reimbursement for Milton's use of a private plane for company business. "These flight hours are related to business travel by the Executive Chairman and other members of the executive team to business meetings and trade conferences, as well as the Executive Chairman's commute between the Company's headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona, and his residence in Utah." Milton, who shifted from chief executive to the chairman role in recent months and remains the company's largest shareholder, has garnered a reputation for his outspoken Twitter presence that's not unlike his counterpart at Tesla, Elon Musk. "It's a bit confusing trying to follow Trevor on his various social media outlets about the timing and cadence of communication of the different variables that you're talking about," one analyst remarked on a conference call. We are pre revenue. I'm starting to see you're just rooting for our failure or make us look bad. It's a hit job and no need for that. The audit committee didn't make me pay it back I get monthly bills from the company for the work for the last 2 years and always paid. — Trevor Milton (@nikolatrevor) August 5, 2020 Have you ever worked with Trevor Milton?

Hi, this is Amanda Perelli and welcome back to Influencer Dashboard, our weekly rundown on the influencer and creator economy. Sign up for the newsletter here. Amazon wants to be a major player in the influencer business. This week, I spoke with a YouTube creator who explained what it's like to work with the ecommerce giant's various programs and how she makes money, from affiliate commissions to livestreaming.  Kim Pratt, who is a skincare influencer and YouTuber, is a member of the Amazon Influencer Program, and for every purchase someone makes through one of her links, she earns a commission ranging from 4% to 10% through the program, she said. But still, she often doesn't make much money on that first purchase one of her followers makes, since the products she links to usually range in price from $5 to $20. Her secret weapon on Amazon is that she also gets a cut of what her followers buy for a day after being directed to Amazon with her link. "You get a cut of everything that person buys for that 24-hour period," she explained. So, how much money does she make as an Amazon Influencer? Typically, Pratt's Amazon affiliate revenue is higher than her monthly YouTube revenue (earned from the ads that play in her videos), she said. But those numbers can fluctuate. In June, Pratt had her best month on YouTube, earning around $7,000, according to a screenshot of her analytics dashboard viewed by Business Insider. On Amazon, she earned around $6,000, shes said, which was near her monthly average from the platform in 2020. In our conversation, Pratt also broke down Amazon's livestreaming program for influencers, which was released widely in July. Her take: It is better in theory than in practice.

Plant influencers are landing brand deals and growing their followings online While sheltering-in-place during the pandemic, many people are looking around their houses and apartments and wondering, "Should I buy more plants?" For advice on the subject, some turn to "plantfluencers," the social-media influencers who specialize in sharing content about — as their nickname suggests — plants. And during the last few months, several houseplant brands like The Sill have seen spikes in plant demand and sales. My colleague Sydney Bradley spoke with several "plantfluencers" and brands about the houseplant trends they've seen and how they're adjusting to the growing demand for greenery. "I think folks are looking for an opportunity to green-up their space and to make their homes that they're working in have a little more light to it," said Christopher Griffin, whose @plantkween Instagram account has grown by nearly 150,000 followers since March.

TikTok salary data shows pay for US jobs in engineering, product, data science, and more It's been a busy week for TikTok. On Friday, President Trump told reporters that he planned to ban the short-form video app outright. By Sunday, the ban was off, with Microsoft announcing that it was in talks to acquire the company's US operations by September 15. Despite political headwinds, TikTok is forging ahead with its hiring plans in the US, staffing up in roles that will help the company compete with digital-media powerhouses like Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. And many of its new hires in the US are being offered six-figure salaries, according to wage data from the US Department of Labor. In order to better understand how much TikTok and its parent company ByteDance pay US-based employees, my colleagues Ashley Rodriguez and Dan Whateley analyzed the US Office of Foreign Labor Certification's disclosure data for permanent and temporary foreign workers. The data include salary offers from TikTok and ByteDance from roughly 240 foreign-labor certification applications that were submitted and certified between October 2019 through June 2020.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday announced a broad program to crack down on Chinese apps and services. The "Clean Network" program will block "untrusted" Chinese apps from app stores; stop Chinese phone companies from pre-installing US apps; keep US data off Chinese cloud services; and guard undersea cables It isn't clear that the plan is workable, and risks balkanizing the internet. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Banning TikTok was only the tip of the iceberg. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday announced a new "Clean Network" initiative, aimed at blocking off large swathes of China's internet from the US. This comes the same week as President Trump ordered that hugely successful social media app TikTok — which is owned by Chinese tech company ByteDance — sell off its US business to an American company or else face getting banned. "The Clean Network program is the Trump Administration's comprehensive approach to guarding our citizens' privacy and our companies' most sensitive information from aggressive intrusions by malign actors, such as the Chinese Communist Party," Pompeo wrote in the announcement of the program. The plans will stoke worries that the internet is set to become increasingly balkanized, with citizens unable to access certain apps or services thanks to geopolitical tensions.  Pompeo outlined five ways in which the initiative aims to keep China away from America's internet, although he was not entirely clear about how they might be technically enforced. 1. Telecoms carriers  Pompeo said this part of the initiative is: "to ensure untrusted People's Republic of China (PRC) carriers are not connected with US telecommunications networks. Such companies pose a danger to US national security and should not provide international telecommunications services to and from the United States." It is not clear from the press announcement exactly how this will work, whether it will bar Chinese telecoms carriers from operating in the US, or whether it might make it impossible for people in China and the US to call one another. 2. No "untrusted" Chinese apps on US app stores The "Clean Store" part of the initiative aims: "To remove untrusted applications from US mobile app stores," meaning Apple's App Store and Google's Play Store. This explanation for this runs: "PRC apps threaten our privacy, proliferate viruses, and spread propaganda and disinformation. American's [sic] most sensitive personal and business information must be protected on their mobile phones from exploitation and theft for the CCP's benefit." This may mean booting Chinese apps, currently permitted on both the major app stores, out entirely. 3. American developers won't be allowed to have their apps pre-installed on phones made by Chinese companies The "Clean Apps" part of the initiative is: "To prevent untrusted PRC smartphone manufacturers from pre-installing –or otherwise making available for download – trusted apps on their apps store." Pompeo specifically names Chinese tech giant Huawei as an example, calling it "an arm of the PRC surveillance state." The US government has long accused Huawei of acting as a proxy for the Chinese government to spy, which Huawei denies. "These [trusted] companies should remove their apps from Huawei's app store to ensure they are not partnering with a human rights abuser," Pompeo writes. Currently, US apps including Amazon's shopping app and Snapchat are available on Huawei's App Gallery. 4. Americans will have to keep their data off Chinese cloud services Pompeo says this is: "To prevent U.S. citizens' most sensitive personal information and our businesses' most valuable intellectual property, including COVID-19 vaccine research, from being stored and processed on cloud-based systems accessible to our foreign adversaries through companies such as Alibaba, Baidu, and Tencent." 5. Keeping China away from undersea internet cables Pompeo writes this part of the initiative is: "To ensure the undersea cables connecting our country to the global internet are not subverted for intelligence gathering by the PRC at hyper scale. We will also work with foreign partners to ensure that undersea cables around the world aren't similarly subject to compromise." It's not clear how exactly this part of the plan will manifest itself, but in June a DOJ telecoms committee advised the FCC to block the construction of an undersea cable to Hong Kong.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why electric planes haven't taken off yet

Twitter briefly banned the Trump campaign's account from tweeting Wednesday after it violated the company's policies against COVID-19 misinformation, a spokesperson told Business Insider. The campaign tweeted a video of Trump falsely claiming to Fox News that children are "almost immune" from the disease. Trump also tweeted a link to the video, which has since been blocked, but the company did not take any action against the president's account. Facebook took down a similar post by Trump earlier in the day for violating its own COVID-19 misinformation policies, a first for the company. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Twitter temporarily blocked the Trump campaign's account from tweeting on Wednesday for posting a video of the president spreading COVID-19 misinformation, a spokesperson told Business Insider. The campaign tweeted a video, which has since been removed, of Trump falsely claiming to Fox News that children are "almost immune" from the disease. "The Tweet you referenced is in violation of the Twitter Rules on COVID-19 misinformation. The account owner will be required to remove the Tweet before they can Tweet again," the spokesperson said. A growing body of research suggests that children can transmit COVID-19 like anyone else, though researchers believe their infection rates are often underreported because they are frequently asymptomatic and have been largely excluded from clinical trials. "Another day, another display of Silicon Valley's flagrant bias against this President, where the rules are only enforced in one direction," Courtney Parella, the Trump campaign's deputy national press secretary, said in a statement. "Social media companies are not the arbiters of truth." President Trump also posted his own tweet linking to the campaign's tweet containing the video, which has been viewed more than 30,000 times. However, Twitter said that it would not take any action against the president's account, only the campaign. "Our enforcement action is specific to Tweets, not accounts that may have amplified it. The video was posted by @TeamTrump and shared via @realDonaldTrump, which is why we're taking action on that account specifically," a spokesperson told Business Insider. Facebook took down a similar post from Trump earlier on Wednesday for violating its own policies against "harmful COVID misinformation," the first time the social media giant has completely removed a post by Trump for spreading false information about the virus. Pressure has mounted on social media companies recently to take stronger steps to address the spread of misinformation on their platforms, particularly around the coronavirus pandemic, hate speech, and elections. Earlier this year, Twitter applied a fact-check label to Trump's tweets falsely claiming mail-in voting causes widespread election fraud. Meanwhile, Trump has become increasingly enraged at social media platforms, particularly Twitter. In recent months, Trump has suggested that Twitter's trending topics are 'illegal' because they make him look bad and singled out the company in a legally dubious executive order that seeks to crack down on platforms' authority to moderate content on their platforms.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: How 'white savior' films like 'The Help' and 'Green Book' hurt Hollywood
