A lot of TikTok bios and comments have the slang “DNI” written on it. What is the meaning of this abbreviation and how to use it?

You get the option of choosing “DNI” in the hospital which is the full form of “Do Not Intubate”. This ensures that the doctors don’t put a pipe down your throat to extend your life. It is a very painful way to live so you get the option of choosing not to live that way.

But the meaning of DNI is completely different on TikTok obviously as nobody can intubate you there.

A deviantart chat, DNI is an acronym for Death Note Interview, based on the popular series Death Note. Characters from the series (popularly referred to as DNG’s in the chat) pop in every now and then to participate in the DNI environment. In DNI general hilarity ensues with little to no instigation. Such instances have included random chatters getting shot, sajoku’d, or one of the fluffy shrimp’s ‘tea parties’. These Tea Parties usually involve rum-laced tea and the DNG’s partaking in it. Then Drunken Randomness ensues, and many times during the chat a noob will get raeped by Rinnian.
All in all, quite fun.
Example – <FangirlNaima> Where you there for all that crazy shit after the Tea Party?
<crazyfacedloser> YES. DNI rocks! <3

How to use it on social media

DNI is used in the bio of inappropriate channels on TikTok so the young users can stay away from the page.

Even when someone introduces themselves on Twitter, they use DNI to warn minors. This way everyone will have a heads-up. If you are a minor, you should stay away from people who have DNI.

Adults should stay away from DNI when they are in office as DNI is just another version of NSFW (Not Safe For Work). If you are posting something that is inappropriate, make sure to tag it with “DNI”.
