I feel a bit dirty having done it. I only did because a couple coworkers love it and we’re going on and on about how funny Gritty, the Philly Flyers mascot, is. And he truly is. I signed up so I could follow him... a freaky, furry, googly-eyed whack job of a mascot that represents a team I generally loathe (though not as much as the Canucks).
It seems weird to sign up for yet another short video service. I mean, I signed up for the Vine replacement, Byte, back in January. But that one was dead right out of the gate. I haven’t touched it since February and I never had any friends sign up.
On TikTok, I’ve already got a couple friends. And I’ve found a bunch of cool celebrity accounts including Chance the Rapper, Jason Derulo, Miley Cyrus, and Kevin Hart; a street magician named Sean Does Magic; as well as accounts for every Chicago sports franchise, save the Cubs for whatever reason.
Ah, what the heck? May as well have a little fun, right?
