there's something interesting about how tiktok does that, like its a skills test about how you mimic the template, can you do the little dance nice?
nose twitch girl did one where she mimicked herself, like mirroring her original version, i think it was not so good 2nd time round, & i guess it could equally have turned out better, but it feels like the spontenaity, the unplannedness is part of what the virality depends on

You aren’t above the dance, even as a troll on any platform. One of the funniest ways I love to see this play out is seeing hard men from where I grew up on Facebook

he used to go on about the global playground didnt he. and sort of play up the 'standards keep getting better' angle (ie people get better at nose twitching) over the homogenisation angle
 
Another thing I notice is, carrying on from the hard men on Facebook thing, women tend to be more sensitive or maybe honest about the conditions imposed by certain platforms and online environments. How they respond or are influenced by. Even across different dating platforms. Whereas straight men can tend to have a fixed idea of an identity they impose. Generally, generally

its quite common though to see the hard men being "vulnerable" or doing silliness with girls on social media isn't it? a sort of performance that plays on their macho, but is facilitated by the way that the platforms get into your personal life.
difficult to be a hard man when your wearinf fluffy slippers on your girl's fb, so you have to rise above it metrosexually, as that exposure is controlled by your missus, not fb/tiktok or insta
