TikTok Is Connecting Older People With Younger Generations, And It's A Breath Of Fresh Air

These Elderly People Making TikTok Videos Is The Most Wholesome Thing You Will Ever See

TikTok is connecting people everywhere, no matter their age.

At the beginning of 2020, I think it’s safe to say that a lot of people over the age of 25 would have thought they were “too old” for TikTok. But, during the COVID-19 pandemic, all of that changed.

This spring, we started seeing people of all ages go viral on the platform. The short, one-minute-or-less videos became a main source of entertainment. We saw families come together to partake in dance trends:

To sum it up, TikTok became a way of connecting people — strangers, really — across the globe. So, it should come as no surprise that older people have also developed fans of all ages on the platform — 82-year-old user @charlesmallet has over 4 million followers. He recently shared his gratitude for TikTok and how it has positively impacted his life:

On his page, you can find skits he does with his wife, cute moments from his life, and cooking videos — like his Rice Krispies one below that received over 2 million views:

And user @grandma_droniak is 90 years old, with over 1.5 million followers. She loves responding to comments — and people love watching. The hilarious video of her outfit below has over 20 million views:

This 78-year-old grandparent duo from Korea has also gained a massive following of nearly 900,000 followers on the platform. On user @grandpachan‘s page, you can find tons of dancing and lip-synching to popular TikTok songs:

@omsteve is an 82-year-old Texas-based user with over 1.4 million followers. He’s always telling entertaining stories and he also performs magic tricks:

If you do enough scrolling on the platform, you’ll come across thousands of other mega-viral elderly people, like @gramma.pat who does everything from dancing to dot-to-dot pages for her fans:

To say 2020 has been a whirlwind of a year is an understatement, but seeing TikTok connect every generation in the way that it has is truly incredible!
