A TikTok War
Since the invasion of Ukraine began, TikTok has offered audiences intimate and startlingly direct glimpses of war. The conflict isn’t the first to play out on social media – the Arab Spring uprisings and the Syrian civil war used Facebook and Twitter to organise protests and broadcast D.I.Y. footage. But TikTok usershave appropriated the platform to tell the story of war in their own cultural language, finding a new style of reportage, analysis and caricature.
