And throughout it all, he's been paying close attention. Today on Follow Friday, Freddie talks with Eric Johnson about why TikTok is funnier than any other social media app, a "terrifying" realization he had recently on Reddit, and four great accounts he follows online: A https://www.tiktok.com/@its557am (fascinating TikTokker) who appears to be able to float; an https://www.youtube.com/c/shiey/videos (anonymous travel vlogger) who believes in "illegal freedom"; the https://www.youtube.com/c/Worthikids/videos (most exciting animator) on the internet right now; and a brilliant https://www.youtube.com/user/MrChiCity3/videos (old-school YouTuber) whose original videos are now a kind of time capsule.
