Manila, Philippines – August 11, 2021 – Good vibes and positivity abound on TikTok, the leading destination for short-form mobile videos. On this platform, anyone can express themselves creatively and freely – Aunties and titas included! In fact, some of the best entertaining comedy videos on TikTok are those created by titas and titas at heart.
While titas literally translates to aunt or aunty in English, the meaning of tita has evolved over time. These days, women in their 20’s and 30’s refer to themselves as titas, too, when they emulate characteristics and behaviors of typical middle-aged Filipino aunts, such as meeting up for brunch with their girlfriends, carrying large purses filled with tita essentials like tissue, hand sanitizer, and mentholated balms, as well as choosing wine as their preferred drink for unwinding at the end of the day.
