‘Triller Money’: How a TikTok Competitor Is Buying Star Power

When talk of a possible TikTok ban began in July, the leaders of a small social video app called Triller saw a growth opportunity.

Some of the Sway Boys, a group of TikTok influencers, had been toying with the idea of building their own app to compete with TikTok, but after a discussion with Ryan Kavanaugh, the majority owner of Triller and a veteran entertainment executive, they decided the platform could be good for them.

Triller offered the creators a deal: Tell your audience on TikTok that you’re moving to Triller, and we’ll give you equity and roles within the company. You can still post on TikTok, they were told, but only if you post on Triller more frequently. In turn, of the Sway Boys, Josh Richards, 18, was named Triller’s chief strategy officer, and Griffin Johnson, 21,

In the last month Triller — a short-form video app that has attracted a number of TikTok stars, including the most popular person on the platform, Charli D’Amelio — announced that it had more than 100 million monthly active users. Speaking to Business Insider, six former employees dispute those numbers, and they told reporter Dan Whateley that Triller’s numbers were shady, based on their experience with the company.

Back in October of last year, Triller said it had reached 13 million monthly active users and 60 million app downloads. A screenshot provided to Business Insider of one of the company’s analytics dashboards, however, shows a different story — only 2 million monthly active users on iOS and around

Apple’s Tile competitor could arrive at the October event

Apple kept it short and to the point at its Sept. 16 virtual event, unveiling a new suite of Apple Watches and iPads, along with the iOS 14, iPadOS 14WatchOS 7 and TVOS 14 to release the following day. Apple didn’t, however, debut its long-rumored smart tracker tag competitor, thought to be called AirTags. They were hinted at in the code for iOS 13 last summer, but rumors were circulating even before that software arrived.

When will we see Apple AirTags? Apple

When Apple debuted new ultrawideband, or UWB, technology in its iPhone 11 models last year, speculation heated up that Apple could release a competitor to Tile’s popular trackers

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and S20 Ultra might be packed to the hilt with the latest, greatest tech, but they also come with sky-high prices to match. That makes them a tricky sell at a time when purse strings are tightening and rivals like OnePlus are making great phones at more affordable prices. The Galaxy S20 FE (which stands for “fan edition”) aims to offer much of what you’ll find in the company’s top-end phones but with a few tweaks here and there in order to keep the price down.

The relentless competitor: Virginia Tech quarterback Braxton Burmeister is ready for his shot | Z-no-digital

“We knew Brax was something special going in,” Hutzler said.

Burmeister didn’t disappoint.

Hutzler said Burmeister had a “deadly” combination of size and speed, and could make any throw the coaching staff asked of him. Those natural abilities, coupled with a dedication to his craft, earned him the job.

“In summer camp before even playing a game, he was asking me about how to rally the team,” Hutzler said. “He’s in my office having conversations about how to show appreciation to the offensive line. He’s asking those kind of questions, which I think goes to show talent-aside what kind of young man he is.”

YouTube Announces TikTok Competitor, Will Launch In India Within Days

KEY POINTS

  • YouTube Shorts, a TikTok-like short-form video app, was announced by YouTube on Monday
  • The “early beta” version of the new app will initially be available in India and only on Android phones
  • Its videos will be only 15 seconds long but will include various features and a deep musical library
