TikTokers have been posting their experiences after using Symbol Telegram 2.

A TikToker named @k_leyoname11 posted a video tutorial for her viewers. Instead of typing in her real name though, she typed random letters to showcase how easy the site is to use. Another user called @kiyo posted another quick tutorial for people to follow. She typed the name “Kiyomii” into the first section which revealed a line of intricate symbols.

One of the symbols in the center even looks like a miniature flower. Her numbers on the viral trend are no joke either; she's pulled in over 11,000 likes on her video.

Once your name has been turned into symbols, you can copy & paste it to be used as the bio name on your Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter profiles. Some TikTokers have even revealed their desire to turn the names of their crushes and significant partners into symbols as well.
