Let’s be real here: being stuck at home is going to be daunting for all of us, and if you’re anything like me, you’ll spend hours perusing those short videos on your For You page.
But something I’ve learned is that a lot of people don’t actually follow anyone on Tik Tok—rather, they watch individual videos and don’t give a lot of people a follow.
But I do follow people, and if you want to give anyone a shot, here are my five favorite accounts.
This is an account with incredible energy, as the man who runs it is elite at calling out other people and their nonsense.
In the classic Tik Tok mirror rant, he quickly and efficiently explains various social issues and why they matter or pertain to the current climate, holding everyone—including himself—accountable.
This guy always makes me laugh. Like a lot of Tik Tok accounts, his content is just kind of scattered, giving off wild card energy.
The videos are never really what I was expecting, but not in a bad way, and they’re definitely the kind of Tik Toks I send to my friends when I can’t sleep in the middle of the night.
Her videos are all about positivity, and I think that’s something we could all use right now.
She’s uplifting, positive, wholesome, and has some of the best energy I’ve ever seen in a human being. If I’m ever feeling a little down, this account is my go-to to make me feel better and put a smile on my face, even if I’m just laying in bed looking like a potato.
This account hosts some of my favorite “story time” videos, and the host is so personable!
She radiates positivity and never fails to put a smile on my face through stories from her past. She has a wholesome personality that you can’t help but get behind.
This man has such weird energy and I can’t get over it.
I first discovered him through his Timmy Turner Tik Tok, and ever since then, I’ve been quietly obsessing over every video since then. There’s just something about this content that’s so original and intriguing that I can’t compare it to anything else.
They’re all ridiculous in the most entertaining, happiness-inducing way, often featuring original music related to the Tik Tok, as he’s also an actual musician.
