Tik Tok is definitely gaining popularity, especially among young Internet users. One of the fascinating aspects of Tik Tok is that it has created new celebrities from its creators. This massive approach to celebrities means casual users can still interact and have a relationship with creators whose work they admire. If that person is a celebrity, personality, or a TikTok influencer, one of the pros that makes social networks great is to communicate with them in any way, even as a viewer. With that in mind, today we are going to list the ten most followed TikTok accounts as of May 2020.
If you’re wondering how these stars got so much recognition, we have some tips for you. TikTok isn’t just music, although it’s certainly one of the more popular genres, anyone with talent and a few tricks can become wildly famous on the social site.
If you’re looking for inspiration, for creative people to follow, or if you just want to see what the masters are doing with Tik Tok, these are the accounts you should follow.

Baby Ariel @Babyariel
Coming in a strong fourth place, Baby Ariel has 32.8 million fans on TikTok. Her real name is Ariel Rebecca Martin, an 18-year-old singer and social media veteran with loads of videos to her name.

Jacob Sartorius @Jacobsartorius
Our last pick on this list is one you’ve probably heard of before. Jacob Sartorius is a 16-year-old teenager from Oklahoma who sings and performs. He released the single “Sweatshirt” on the Hot 100. He has 23.4 million followers on Tik Tok. He started creating as an escape from tyranny and has grown from strength to strength ever since. His online popularity has morphed into full-on tours reminiscent of Justin Bieber in the 2000s.
It’s always a surprise to see how young the typical Tik Tok creator is. Most of these individuals can be as young as 20 and as young as 15. I am always pleasantly surprised to see how good these people really are. No wonder the social network is so popular!
Whether it’s their music, comedy or quality, each of these stars is completely dedicated to their fan base. TikTokers with the biggest fan bases who are constantly uploading new content and appealing to the masses tend to be people with the right skill and determination.
If you are wondering how to search for your favorite TikTok star, it will be difficult in the web browser. Sometimes using a computer is just easier. Our workaround for TikTok not having a search option on its website is to give Google the user’s name + TikTok. The link will appear and take you directly to their profile.
