TikTok has taken the world by storm, with creators gaining immeasurable fame through the social media app. The app allows users to create videos of themselves, sometimes using voice-overs from movies and such. But did you know that not all TikTokers are created equally? Recently trending, Alt TikTok has divided the fandom into two; Alt TikTok and Straight TikTok.
What is Alt TikTok
Alt TikTok is a subdivision of the TikTok fandom. The term refers to an alternate version of TikTok, still within the app though. There is no physical division between Alt TikTok and Straight TikTok, but there is a division in the choice of content.
Alt TikTok proposes that there is a whole section of users on TikTok that appreciate a very different style of videos; almost an anti-TikTok version. Alt TikTok does not follow the latest trends and happenings in the TikTok world. Instead, it is ironic and even attempts to make fun of such trends.
Alt TikTok users will have a very different ‘For You’ page on the app. TikTok’s ‘For You’ page is basically a playlist of video that the apps think you would like. The list is based on your viewing history, likes, favorites, etc.
What is the Alt TikTok Quiz
The Alt TikTok quiz is made to help you figure out which side of TikTok you really belong to, even if you don’t know yourself.
The Alt TikTok Quiz asks users a bunch of questions about their choice of media consumption on the app. It also checks if you are familiar with any of the famous TikTok creators. At the end of the quiz, you are categorized according to the answers you have provided.

How to get on Alt TikTok
As this Urban dictionary definition defines it, Alt TikTok is nothing but TikTok with humor instead of the looks. The distinction has nothing to do with your sexuality but more about how arbitrary and funny your videos are. If you consider yourself as someone who belongs to the Alt TikTok world, then your videos will be about generation Z humor and you would be talking about how terrible your life is.
not really straight tiktok is more just the dancing hype side of tiktok while gay/alt tiktok would be more gen z humor, talking about trauma and how terrible your life is, and making fun of people. It’s more what you like then your sexuality.

More TikTok Google Form
Google form is a trending hashtag on TikTok, that is closely associated with the Alt TikTok community.
#googleform videos have creators selecting from multiple choices of answers, the lyrics to famous songs, as the song plays in the background. It is oddly satisfying to watch the music match the lyrics that are being selected on the Google form.
Alternatives to the #googleform include audio from funny scenes in movies or TV shows. Since this is not the typical content that TikTok creators come up with, the term has been trending with Alt TikTokers.
