Trend of the week: the return of the twee
I don’t want to alarm anyone, but the TikTok kids discovered twoe. The unfortunate fashion and culture trend was popular with hipsters around 2008, and featured shyly adorable music from Belle and Sebastian, movies like Juno and 500 summer days, and women’s fashion like ballet flats and denim jackets, think of Zooey Deschanel in its heyday. (I don’t know what those gentlemen were wearing, but maybe those waxed mustaches and those popular chunky glasses for a minute?) #twee hashtag for more twee than you could ever want, and a preview of how the new generation is changing their signature styles.

TikTok teens diagnosed with rare mental disorders
If a preteen or teen you care about has started telling you they have borderline personality disorder, they may be the victim of the latest unfortunate trend in TikTok’s verse. Children diagnose themselves and others with rare psychological problems, from BPD and bipolar disorder to dissociative identity disorder.
Although they basically do the same thing you do with WebMD – look for a symptom they are experiencing and imagine they have the most serious disease it is associated with –Content spontaneously generated by TikTok makes matters worse. Shady “therapists” post videos encouraging self-diagnosis, peers reinforce behavior, and everything is exacerbated by a TikTok algorithm that is showing more and more videos about mental illness to panicked children who think they have it. It’s like a nightmare horror feedback loop and it gave me derealization disorder.
Disgusting food trend of the week: yellow mustard on Oreos
TikTok isn’t just for regrettable self-diagnoses, howeverâthere is also disgusting food. Kids put yellow mustard on Oreo cookies, eat it, and post videos to delight and disgust others. As you can imagine, the videos include a message ask viewers to forward it to a friend so they can try it out too. The trend has gone as far as singer Lizzo, who seemed to enjoy the barfy snack.
Because I am a brave and selfless man, I have spared you all efforts and tried the mustard Oreos myself. I also gave it to my son who loves Oreo. ” It’s disgusting. The people on TikTok are really stupid, âhe reported. I agree on both points.
“Hype House” is streaming on Netflix
Do you want to go deep into TikTok’s Hype House, the mansion in Moorpark, California populated exclusively by influencers like Vinnie Hacker, Lil Huddy, and Larray Merritt? If you said âPlease my God, no! I have bad news for you: The Hype House, a a reality show that promises “a glimpse of social media’s most talked about stars as they navigate love, fame, and friendship while creating content and living together,“is streaming now on Netflix.
“Imagine a fellowship filled with people who have millions of followers and dollars at their fingertips, with high school drama and, like, a ring light.” the Threshing house star Nikita Dragun suggested on the show. I don’t think I will imagine that. I think I imagine the sun running out of fuel and transforming into a red dwarf star that expands to annihilate the earth instead.
