Engadget

While TikTok's future in the US is starting to become clear, the weeks of uncertainty surrounding the app has undeniably helped one of its biggest rivals. I'm not talking about Instagram, but music video app Triller, which has surged in popularity amid TikTok's reckoning. Now the app has nabbed TikTok's biggest star: Charli D'Amelio, who has 87 million followers on the app. She officially joined Triller Tuesday, along with her sister and parents, who each also has a massive audience on TikTok. As The Verge notes, it's not an exclusive arrangement, so the D'Amelio family likely aren't abandoning their TikTok accounts any time soon, but it's still a major get for Triller.
