Do you follow Windows on TikTok? You probably should.
Memes and nostalgia abound on the Windows TikTok account.
What you need to know
- Windows has a TikTok account that regularly shares funny videos.
- The Windows Twitter account shared a Windows rap from the TikTok account.
- Microsoft started the Windows TikTok account earlier this month.
Microsoft didn't end up buying TikTok, but the company has several accounts on the platform. Microsoft, Surface, and Microsoft Education have accounts on TikTok. Earlier this month, an official Windows account was created on the social media platform. If you're a fan of Windows memes, it's worth checking out.
For those that aren't on TikTok that often, the Windows Twitter account did a bit of cross-media promotion today. The Twitter account shared a video from TikTok of a Windows rap. The rap's verse is set over a beat featuring iconic Windows sound effects and chimes.
We started a TikTok so when our bosses catch us on it we can say it's for work. https://t.co/0xwWvqZ94y @Piff_Marti pic.twitter.com/OktCaGXZ1hWe started a TikTok so when our bosses catch us on it we can say it's for work. https://t.co/0xwWvqZ94y @Piff_Marti pic.twitter.com/OktCaGXZ1h— Windows (@Windows) October 22, 2021October 22, 2021
The Windows TikTok account also features a group singing Windows startup sounds, a closer look at the limited edition Windows Bloomberry ice cream, and a clip of the Microsoft Internet Keyboard.
Interestingly, the only account that the Windows account follows on TikTok is Emily Zugay, a star of the platform known for her flat affect sarcasm. Some of her most famous videos center around remaking iconic company logos in ironic ways. Zugay is quite famous on the platform but is a bit odd to see as the only person followed by the Windows account.
We're still waiting for an official Windows Phone account.
