Top TikTok content creators spur new social media frenzy, Hype House
More than 1.5 billion people have downloaded the TipTok app; now its biggest stars have joined forces.
We're only a week into 2020, and already, one social media app is dominating headlines: TikTok. When stars from the video-sharing app showed up at the Eaton Centre in Toronto, a riot nearly broke out — but it's hardly a wonder the app has its own celebrity ecosystem, since it's been downloaded over 1.5 billion times.

Buzzfeed social media editor and q online columnist Elamin Abdelmahmoud joins Laurie Brown to get us up to speed.
