20. Lucas and Marcus
Another TikTok profile that is used by twins, Lucas and Marcus, are popularly known as the Dobre twins, and they indulge in creating funny videos that include pranks and other such stuff.
Their TikTok account is followed by 25.2 million users (same as Mr. Smiling Chef). Both the brothers also have a great number of followers on YouTube and Instagram, but every other TikToker on this list has that.
While creating this list of the top TikTokers, we have missed a few people despite having a great number of followers. The reason to skip them is that either these user’s accounts are banned by TikTok, or the country has banned TikTok.
And one of those countries is India. There were numerous TikTokers helming from India who had a great number of followers, but due to the government’s ban, TikTok is not accessible in the country.
This means that no Indian user can see and post content on TikTok. The top Indian profiles that we have skipped include Riyaz Aly (43.3 Million), Faisal Shaikh (31.9 Million); Arishfa Khan (28.5 million); Nisha Guragain (28 Million); and Awez Darbar (25.9 Million).
