How to create text posts on TikTok
You’ll need the latest version of the TikTok app to create text posts.
Tap the plus icon
This is the same icon you use to create any type of post, including photos and videos.
This should be to the right of the default photo setting.
Type your text
You can also change the font, colour and size at this stage.
This option is in the top right corner.
Hit Post To Feed
Or select Your Story to share the text post to your story.
TikTok users can customise the font, colour and size of their text posts, along with the background colour and sound. You can even add stickers to make your post stand out.
Yes, TikTok users can Duet a text post the same way they can any other post. The only requirement is that the original creator allow permission for Duets.
