The short video social media platform TikTok was released in China in 2016 and worldwide in 2018. In that brief time it seems TikTok has changed many aspects of modern life – not necessarily for the benefit of humanity. One in particular that is somewhat of a surprise is the area of time travel. The description “TikTok time traveler” has become commonplace as self-described time travelers from the future post videos of warnings of disastrous and even apocalyptic events they say will happen soon – usually within weeks of the posting of the videos. Since we are still alive and on Earth, haven’t seen any alien invasions or monster appearances or world wars, most of these videos are deemed to be hoaxes.
