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.
And the latest TikTok video to go viral might just be the freakiest yet...
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.
It's not just teenagers who are obsessed with social media...

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...

The rise of superstars...
Some are just plain weird...
It can now be established that TikTok is just a space for weird videos.
But there's one new TikTok that's taking the internet by storm.And people cannot get their heads around it.
We've tried it ourselves...And we must admit, our minds are blown.
We've watched it several times.And we're still not 100% how it works.
It's all to do with reading.The video shows two words written on the screen.
One is "green needle."Weird, but ok ...
The other side reads "brainstorm."Now, you'd have to say these two phrases don't sound very similar, right?
But when you read either word ...That's also the word you hear. It's pretty crazy stuff.
And it's safe to say TikTok agrees.

Twitter is also in on the action.

It's a whole mess.
