With so much excellent content on TikTok, there is no need to worry because we’ve got you covered!

What is straight TikTok?

Straight TikTok is nothing to do with sexuality. It is actually often viewed as mainstream, a more dull and predictable category. Straight TikTok is essentially typical dancing and lip-syncing videos. People associated with this category include Addison Rae, Charli D’Amelio, and the Lopez brothers.

Why should I get off straight TikTok?

As straight TikTok is seen as a more mainstream category, you might not have been exposed to other types. Many users have complained about the flooding of straight TikTok in their homepages, as they find it repetitive. However, Alt (or Elite) TikTok videos are often described as more “edgy” content because there is no dancing or lip-syncing, but unexpected audios, bizarre visuals, and inside jokes. Alt TikTok videos have also been made to mock other ‘straight’ trends.
