Rise to Fame

The most popular video on her channel is ‘I tried doing a makeup tutorial for the first time – FUNNY’, with over a million views.
In 2013, she also became active on the short-video-sharing app Vine. She not only was very productive at the height of the app’s popularity but also gained initial fame because of it, as her first viral content was a Vine video.
The oldest picture on her Instagram was posted in September 2013. She has maintained a prominent presence on the app, posting regularly. On Instagram, she puts out comedy skits as well as pictures and videos from her personal life.
As a social media influencer, ThunThun Skittles has been the most effective on TikTok. Her videos are conventional to a degree. She does lip-sync to popular songs and dialogues, while often applying Snapchat filters and wearing unique dresses. However, what sets her apart from the majority of other TikTok users is her ability to laugh at herself. She makes absurd faces at the camera while holding it an odd angle and thus effectively invoking humour at her own expense. Her audience seems to love her for it.
