TikTok teen sensation Charli D’Amelio became the first creator to top the 100 million follower mark on the platform, doing so in less than 18 months.
The video creation platform said in a blog post, “While we’re extremely proud of Charli and all that she has accomplished since she shared her first TikTok video in May 2019, we’re most proud of her continued and unwavering commitment to herself and the TikTok community. Charli has inspired joy just by being herself, proving that, on TikTok, creative ideas matter more than social connections and people are celebrated for being their authentic selves.”
