Serena Williams’ husband, Alexis Ohanian, enjoys the fact that many TikTok-ers start to migrate to Byte, a video sharing platform created by Dom Hofmann, the former co-founder of Vine. Byte was launched in January 2020 and it looks like a capable competitor to TikTok, which already has over 1 billion users – Byte just passed 500k users.
Alexis Ohanian showed his support for the fresh American platform on one of his Instagram Stories where he displayed a tweet he liked. The tweet sounds like this: “TikTok’s going to be banned, alt-Tiktok-ers are moving to Byte, made by the Vine creators.
Hurry up, plus swipe up while the usernames are still good”. Ohanian commented on his Instagram story. “Love to see the shift to Byte”.
Byte’s mission and Serena Williams’ TikTok activity
Byte is dedicated to building tools and communities around the possibility of new experiences.
They claim that their mission is to put creativity first in all that they do. “As humans living among other humans in a complicated world, we believe that creative, playful contact with others helps us tap into our collective potential.
In the interest of keeping our community a safe and supportive one, this document lays out a framework for what does and doesn't fly on byte. It's driven by our values as people and citizens and it's a work in progress, which means we'll update it as we learn from experience and from you,” is stated on Byte’s official website.
Regarding Serena Williams’ preferences, we don’t know whether she will make the transition from TikTok to Byte. Until further action, the American tennis legend enjoys a following of over 39.000 users on TikTok.
However, she has only posted 10 videos so far. One of Serena Williams' famous TikTok videos is the one she took after she decided to switch things up in the kitchen and cook a meal wearing a Snow White dress. However, her costume didn’t fit her in the back.
“Hello, I’m back! I’m going to stick this in the microwave for two minutes. Speaking of backs, my dress doesn't fit… in the back!” Williams sings in the video.
