Thai Police: We're Investigating Stranger Who Has More Than 40M TikTok Followers

Or he could be so cool he doesn’t want to speak up.

Authorities in Thailand are in the process of verifying a user named “JayTai” who has a whopping 40 million followers on the video-sharing app TikTok, The Guardian reported. His channel’s videos routinely include internet memes and nail art, but he could also be a social media boss whose a very wealthy man.

No one knows for sure.

An algorithm is currently trying to differentiate JayTai between three users with the same name, but could simply be the founder of JayTai Studios, a video editing company, according to The Guardian.

Someone can upload a video and hit “broadcast” to get a Taktik account, which is free to do. The issue is when that video ends up gone, as with this one:

Authorities are not worried about JayTai, though.

“I’ve seen video creators leak their videos, and it’s very detrimental to them,” Taktik’s general manager Prasart Vaibhod said. “If they’re genuine, they should get legal protection.”

He’s also trying to make sure the change is not a hoax.

“We’re going through a process of realigning names to make sure it’s not a scam,” he said.

And making sure we get the job done legally.
