How to Waste Two Hours on TikTok

Spend your time wisely...

Lauren Godwin

Chances are, you’ve already downloaded TikTok. Your fascination might have started with mere curiosity, but if you’ve got your head around the app, you’ll know that it’s a pot of comedic gold. 

If you still haven’t tried it out yet (Ok boomer), you’ve probably seen a slew of videos watermarked with TikTok’s logo on your Instagram feed, with someone you’ve never seen before dancing along to a song you’ve never heard of. If that describes you, you’re missing out. 

Despite its light-hearted content, TikTok is proof of Gen Z’s ability to self-deprecate effortlessly. Yes, the app is home to extremely cringe-worthy posts by teenagers, but it’s also a place where awareness is raised.  

The app is where a young teen named Feroza Aziz went viral after posting a makeshift makeup tutorial calling out China’s detention of millions of Muslims in internment camps. It’s also where it’s the norm to use comedy to express social-consciousness. It’s also the norm to post ridiculous Vine-esque videos just for the laughs. Both live in harmony on the app. 

So if you find yourself with a bit of time to kill and don’t know how to do it, it’s a good idea to hop on the TikTok bandwagon. These are the accounts and hashtags to follow.
