Social media has completely taken over the world.
If it's not Facebook, it's Instagram. And if it's not Instagram, it's Twitter. The possibilities of social media are endless, but so are the totally pointless traits that modern-day technology holds.
TikTok - the video-making app that allows users to create short videos that very quickly go viral - is one of them.
But one TikTok video with a rather unexpected ending has gone viral this week...
TikTok is absolutely taking over the world.It's pretty unlikely that you'll see a teenager who isn't obsessed with the social media platform.

A lot of social media apps provide many purposes...

But there are some apps that aren't so productive...And TikTok is one of them!
A lot of people are struggling to understand exactly what TikTok is...Basically, it is an iOS and Android app made for creating and sharing short lip-sync, comedy, and talent videos.
It went viral pretty quick ...It was the world's fourth most downloaded app in 2018, beating Instagram and Snapchat - which is a pretty big achievement!
It has been argued that TikTok is better than Vine...Who remembers Vine? Launched in 2012, Vine was a short-form video hosting service that allowed users to share 6-second-long looping video clips.
TikTok videos look a little something like this...
