The meeting was attended by top TikTok users including Kanwal Aftab, Zulqurnain Sikandar, Sehar hayyat, Warda Javaid, Daniya Sohail and Haider Ali who spoke about the current situation and shared their input on how the platform can be better used to raise awareness among masses to stop the spread of misinformation.

The thought behind the idea was that since the app has a massive reach in Pakistan and content creators are followed by urban as well as rural netizens, spreading of a public service message via the app may prove to be a good idea.

However, shortly after the news came out, Twitter went ablaze with all sorts of Tweets. Some supportive and some not-so-supportive! Many were of the view that doctors should’ve been invited and given this initiative to spread awareness on the matter while only a few raised their voice in favour.

Here’s what’s happening…
