Story Time

What does Story Time mean on TikTok?

Give more information

When you’re scrolling through TikTok and see a video that’s missing a vital piece of information, you might spot the comment “story time”. This became a trend on TikTok around March 2022, and is used when people want to know more about what’s going on in a video.

It’s not clear who got the ball rolling with the “story time” trend. It’s a simple and direct way of asking for a story or more details. It’s like saying, “I’m ready for a story, give me more info”.

Not everyone is a fan of the term though. Some TikTok creators view it as a criticism or a rude demand. They find it annoying when their work is questioned with comments like “story time”.

On the other side, many people use the term innocently. They’re just curious and want to understand the backstory of a weird video. Let’s say there’s a clip of a man sticking unusual decals on his head. Dropping a “story time?” in the comments is a way of asking for the full story behind the unusual behavior.
