Why is YouTube allowing Tik Tok ads? Counter intuitive?

Apr 1, 2018
Wouldn't that move the YouTube active users to Tik Tok, the other video sharing platform? Smashing your foot with a rock?

Executives squeezing the last bit of juice out of YouTube to meet quotas? YouTube is like selling Tik Tok the rope it would use to strangle YouTube right?
Also what up with the Tik Tok recommendations with millions of views, if I were YouTube I would shadow ban the f🅰️k out of those videos like they did to leafy to make sure Tik Tok spends more on advertising.

What is going on? I don't quite understand here.
