Tik Tok slang words are those words invented by teenagers which they use to have a conversation. Lots of older people have problem with this and think it’s a murder of the language but in my opinion, language is created to communicate and there’s nothing wrong with using slangs if they can understand what each other are saying.
Gen Z people are mostly known for creating slangs and this became popular extensively because of the internet, messaging apps, and so on. Because while texting, it is much easier to say “Gn” rather than Good Night. Moreover, memes also popularize this trend of using slang words.

Slangs on Tik Tok are the same as slangs elsewhere. These slang words are used all over the internet- memes, messaging, texting, and definitely Tik Tok and other video sharing apps.

It’s not that hard to understand the meaning of slang words on Tik Tok. The rise of slang words to prominence is also due to the use of hashtags on Tik Tok. Because hashtags are important ways to make your video viral, people used hashtags and they sort of became these slang terms.
