BEFORE YOU BELIEVE THE RATINGS OF JOE BIDEN’S TOWN HALL…

…consider this, extracted from Daniel Van Boom’s article at cnet.com:

Over the past day, a new challenge has circulated on TikTok: Get your TV, computer, phone, tablet and any other device with a screen, and watch Joe Biden’s town hall on every single one. Trump, the idea goes, is ratings obsessed, so it’ll be a humiliation if Biden’s town hall event outperforms the president’s.

The idea began with Hank Green, a popular TikTok user, with more than 1.3 million followers. “If we did want to prevent Donald Trump from having this small win, we could all watch the Joe Biden town hall on every device we own simultaneously,” he said in a Wednesday TikTok clip, “every phone, television and computer.” The clip has racked up 1.1 million likes so far.

The idea has proliferated throughout the platform. Over 350 videos using Green’s audio have been posted in the past day, and many more TikTok users are spreading the idea with original posts of their own.

The article goes on to say that this should not affect the Nielsen ratings, which do not incorportate streaming services into their data.  But it obviously will have a huge affect on any ratings sources that do.

Just thought you should know….
