TikTok has been around since 2016, but a global pandemic has led to its explosion on almost every millennials phone. So much so, that POTUS is attempting to disband and crush its influence in the United States.
Trump might not be a fan but we are; the below TikTok stars are a good reason why you should check out the social media phenomenon (if you haven’t already). We’ve even included a sneak peak of their TikToks to wet your appetite.
The de facto Queen of TikTok, Charli D’Amelio gained 5 million followers in a matter of months. She now has over 80 million, making her the most followed star on the platform, all at the age of 16! How has she done it? Well, there’s no special ingredient but her sharp dance routines and vocal abilities have certainly helped.

Damn who’s a sexy bitch!? JiffPom – the world’s favourite and potentially cutest Pomeranian (a tiny fluffy dog for those uninitiated in dog breeds). It’s hard not to smile at the adorable little fluff ball, as it’s dressed up in little doggy t-shirts and hoodies whilst ironic pop music is blared out. Somehow it just works. It’s the little things…

Magic and pranks rolled into one. What more could you ask for? It feels as if TikTok was purpose built for sleight of hand tricks and witty gags. JustinFlom pitches at just the right level – the pranks get a giggle but aren’t gross out Jackass-eqsue. And the magic is sharper than your standard rabbit-in-a-hat or pub card tricks. Beware; this page is easily watchable and very addictive.
The world is a blank canvas. Well, to Ben Johnson the worlds’ favourite sneaker brands are a blank canvas. The artists’ custom shoe designs will blow your mind and leave you wanting more.
