NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On October 17, the hottest stars of social media sent Triller’s numbers skyrocketing with the very first “Triller’s Friday Flip Day.” Throughout the day, influencers — which represent over 200 million followers on TikTok — posted the first part of a video on TikTok with a request for fans to follow them on Triller to see the rest of their video.
A-list influencers from Charlie and Dixie D’Amelio, Kelianne Stankus, and Olivia Ponton to Sway LA’s Noah Beck, Josh Richards, Blake Gray, and Anthony Reeves posted Flip Day videos, shooting the app to the Top 10 in most countries around the world on iOS.
With the looming ban on TikTok, Triller is quickly taking pole position as the hottest short form music app. This comes on the heels of one of the original and most important members of TikTok’s management team, Mary Rahmani, announcing she had left TikTok to join Triller. Last week Pakistan (with a population of over 200 million) became the latest country to ban the Chinese government-run spyware TikTok.
“It’s clear users and influencers have realized the danger of TikTok, and we're just happy we can continue to provide a safe and artist-friendly environment with new features, content, and contests daily,” said Mike Lu, CEO of Triller.
“Going forward, Friday will be our official Triller Flip Day; we will be running challenges, contests, and helping to build new social media stars via participation in Flip Day,” he continued.
