TikTok launches its inaugural #ItStartsOnTikTok campaign with a mission to inspire creativity and bring joy

The tech phenomenon is celebrating all the TikTok trends, stories, songs, and conversations that exploded across the Internet! The unique TikTok community has created a culture and united individuals throughout the world.

From the birth of Dalgona Coffee and the #WipeItDown challenge to the #KeSanaKeSini soundbite and the #SirenBeat challenge, there's no denying that #ItStartsOnTikTok.

Since its inception, TikTok has grown to become a vibrant, positive, and safe platform for creators to let their imagination soar and create powerful content that reaches a worldwide audience.

Whether you're appreciating art and culture, watching a food recipe, learning beauty and fashion tips, or cry-laughing at hilarious challenges... the sky's the limit on TikTok!

And Malaysian TikTok is just as vibrant and diverse as the nation itself. From creators like Harith Zazman who was discovered on TikTok through his hit song Cute, to the worldwide viral #HeadDanceChallenge that was started by Afiq Hakim.

And it's not just crazy, fun videos. TikTok has transformed into a tool to explore and experience new things too.

During a partnership with Penang Global Tourism, TikTok brought netizens on a journey to #ExperiencePenang via the app. 

Meanwhile, Malaysian culture is celebrated through campaigns like #Raya2020 and #KitaBersama for Hari Kebangsaan. Recently, TikTok launched the #thinkb4youdo to promote online safety and outline ways to combat cyberbullying.
