The 10 Most Famous Popular & Followed TikTok Accounts [May 2020]
Tik Tok is absolutely exploding in popularity, particularly among younger Internet users. One of the fascinating aspects of Tik Tok is that it has created new celebrities out of those who create content. This up-from-the-masses approach to celebrity means that ordinary users can still interact and have a relationship with the creators whose work they admire. If that person is a celebrity, personality, or a TikTok influencer, having any kind of contact with them even if just as a viewer is one of the pros that make social networking great. With that in mind, today we’re going to list the ten most followed TikTok accounts as of May 2020.
If you’re wondering how these stars became so well known, we have some tips for you. TikTok isn’t just music, although that’s certainly one of the more popular genres, anyone with talent and few tricks can become wildly famous on the social site.
If you’re looking for inspiration, for creative people to follow or just want to see what the masters are doing with Tik Tok, these are the accounts to follow. This data was updated on May 8th, 2020. So, if you’re wondering which TikTok superstar you should be following, we’ll get to the list!

Our final selection on that list is someone you’ve probably heard of before. Jacob Sartorius is a 16-year-old from Oklahoma who sings and performs.

It is always a surprise to see how young the typical Tik Tok creator is. Most of these individuals are less than 20 years old and can be as young as 15. I’m always pleasantly surprised to see how good these people actually are. No wonder the social network is so popular!
Whether it’s their music, comedy, or quality, each of these stars are fully dedicated to their fan base. Constantly uploading new content, and appealing to the masses, the TikTokers with the largest fan base tend to be those with the right skills and determination.
If you’re wondering how to search out your favorite TikTok star it will be difficult in the web browser. Sometimes using a computer is just easier. Our workaround for TikTok’s lack of a search option on the website is to Google the user’s name + TikTok. The link will appear and take you right to their profile.
