I may be the only person on earth that doesn't know what it is, all I know is it's mentioned in articles and peoples posts on the intranets. I know some are trying to ban it, some seem to love it, and it has something to do with the Chinese. So if you want fill me or anyone else like me in on the skinny, you can even lie if you like. Come to think of it, I'd encourage you to lie about it, that way I still won't actually know what this is. I'm a modern man, my cell phone is two cups and a string tied between them. A tweet is something a bird does to annoy me. Face book is a book with a face on it. Anyway you get the idea, so WTF is TikTok man?

“TikTok (Chinese: 抖音; pinyin: Dǒuyīn) is a Chinese video-sharing social networking serviceowned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based internet technology company founded in 2012 by Zhang Yiming. It is used to create short dance, lip-sync, comedy and talent videos.”

That’s the Wikipedia description, kind of sums it up. It is designed for you to swipe through lots of very short videos very quickly and easily. The design makes it extremely addictive to some people.

I googled it and still don't know what the hell it is (was).

Did read that Trump may be shutting them down in the U.S.
