Who is the ‘Glitch Queen’ on TikTok?
Responsible for popularising the glitching TikTok trend, ‘Glitch Queen’ Vanessa Clark is a 17-year-old student from Worcester, Massachusetts.
Clark currently studies at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Science, according to Insider.
The TikToker posted a ‘glitch’ video back in mid June, which has since blown up with views, shares and likes. Her TikTok account now boasts over 1.5 million followers!
Following the creation of the glitching trend, Clark told Insider: “Everyone’s having fun with the challenge … I see people (glitching) not just from America, but internationally. It makes me happy that people all over the world are doing it.”
What is glitching and how can you take part?
If you want to get in on this new viral trend, here’s all that you need to know:
Glitching, or ‘glitch-dancing’, is less like the trends that we’re used to seeing on TikTok. Jolting in quick, rigid movements, the idea is to look like you’re, well, glitching. For lack of better words, imagine you’re buffering on a Zoom call with a poor WiFi connection.
Clark has also sped up some of her TikTok videos to further enhance the effect.
As of right now, we’re seeing other TikToker’s have fresh takes on the viral trend – some are glitching to music, some are doing transitions and some are experimenting with their own moves.
As for Vanessa Clark, AKA The Glitch Queen, she’s enjoying keeping the glitching simple and subtle, telling Insider: “When a lot of people glitch, they do transitions, but I don’t. I just sit down on my kitchen counter and it looks cool, and I think people really like that.”
