President Arif Alvi officially joined TikTok and he has already been challenged to a dance off

Will this finally stop TikTok from getting banned every couple of months?
17 Jul, 2021

It's history in the making folks — the president of Pakistan has just made an official account on TikTok. Dr. Arif Alvi is now just a TikTok message away.

In a strange turn of events, the announcement was made on the president of Pakistan's Twitter account. "The President of Pakistan is now on TikTok!" the post read. "To spread the message of positivity and motivation for the youth of Pakistan, we will keep pushing inspiring videos for the TikTok users."

A video has been posted on the president's account already. It's a snippet from a speech that President Alvi made in the past, the message of which is directed towards the youth.

The news is spreading across social media like wildfire and people have posted all kinds of reactions to the news.

One user felt it was a great way to reach out to the "nikammi" youth. Ouch. Their word, not ours.

"I felt shocked and disappointed [at first]," the user wrote. "[T]hen I realised that it's a good way to try to reach out and convey some positive message to our "nikammi" youth, who waste most of their time watching useless stuff."

Another user invited the president to a Fortnite dance challenge. To be on TikTok and not do a dance challenge? That would be a travesty Mr President.

Many users are welcoming the decision and applauding the political move. The comment section of President Alvi's first TikTok video is also filled with jubilant TikTok users who are happy to have him on board.

One user on Twitter called the move "pragmatic" and an "excellent idea"

Many more though are curious about what the president will do when his government decides to ban the app yet again. We'd remind you how many times the ban has occurred already but we've kind of lost count ourselves.

A user posted, "I'm curious what he's going to do when the next court order comes to ban the app for it's "immoral content" in the country."

We're curious to know what kind of content Alvi will create on TikTok. Duets? Dance challenges? The possibilities are endless. He won't have to worry about establishing rule on the app though because there's already a prime minister elect on TikTok, complete with a cabinet but we're sure they'll be more than happy to have the real president join them.

The real question is what his definition is of "positivity and motivation" for the youth of Pakistan is. We don't know about you but we would be pretty motivated seeing him do the renegade.

Just like YouTube, Facebook, instagram etc can be used for right/useful and wrong purposes, similarly TikTok can also be for right/useful and wrong purpose. Not need to be alarmed

The Great Khan is the only person in Pakistan who can stand on his own, punch for punch and more, on social media. The unlettered squeamish should stay away from its no holds barred free for all center stage.

Read the unsaid ... "TikTok won't be can not be banned"! Is that a good news or bad news? Both! Loss-of-sovereignty to ccp is implicit, pandering to ccp is implicit. The masses get fooled hooked to explicit distraction 'president hooked to tiktok'.

Jay walkers Imran Niazi and Qureshi should follow suit and do a moon walk step to the 'Just beat it' song of Michael Jackson. :)

Dr. Alvi is one of the saner voices in the party. It is a shame that instead of taking advantage of his expertise and wisdom he has been put in a position where he can only issue ordinances and file references. Is it because he spoke his mind in the Islamabad sit in and after the decision of judicial commission's on rigging in election 2013. Now on Tik Tok he will again be a mouthpiece for government and party.

@Chrís Dăn Yeah he is smart, wise, and farsighted. Despite being apolitical he always opines for peace & friendship amongst nations. Despite the fact that he was born in Delhi, the Delhiites & Karachiiites wonder when President Alvi take initiative for easy visa & travel regime between India & Pak. The examples of China & Taiwan is enough to see. Despite political prejudices the trade & travel between China & Taiwan rapidly increasing.
