It seems there is really no end to the pointless and sometimes stupid trends and challenges that litter your TikTok "For You" page. The more harmless ones, like the dad-joke "Don't Leave Me" challenge or friend-pranking pause challenge offer some mild humor to your scrolling, but ultimately cause no harm.
The Twist Her Mind challenge is another one of those seemingly pointless pranks — but it's one that requires the right set of circumstances to work correctly. It's ultimately harmless, but it could be a good way to prank your friend who also has a TikTok account.
What is the Twist Her Mind challenge on TikTok?
The Twist Her Mind challenge got its name from the audio TikTokers use for the challenge. The audio, which can be found under the title "she got her mind screwed by me.. and it worked," features a woman saying, "So I wanted to see her anger level. I wanted to see if I was powerful enough to twist her mind." This challenge only works if you know someone on the app who is about to reach a big follower milestone.
The trick to this challenge is to mess with the person, making them think they've reached the milestone, only to take it away from them immediately. To do the challenge, the user will pick their victim and continuously tap the follow and unfollow button.
If they're about to hit a follower milestone — let's say, for example, 1,000 followers — doing this will cause their profile to reflect the milestone, only to go back down once you click unfollow again.
Those who have any sort of status on the app know that follower milestones are important. Depending on how big the milestone is, the user will likely be watching their follower count at that time, which is why doing it and undoing it is considered a funny prank.
Users on the app have done this to many other users. Some pick their friends, especially those with larger followings, to play this prank on, meaning it in good jest. Others have tried to pull this on larger stars like the app's top creator Charli D'Amelio (though let's be honest — her followers grow so fast she probably doesn't religiously watch her milestones anymore).
We're not quite sure why you would want to do this challenge unless you have an unnecessarily large amount of free time on your hands that allows you the freedom to watch someone's follower count but to each their own.
Some users have challenged their followers to try the challenge on them, especially when they're about to reach a significantly large follower milestone. If one of your favorite TikTokers is offering the challenge, then you can try to pull the prank on them, but you'll likely be competing with many others. If you're really looking to make this an effective prank, it's best to try this on your friend with the most followers.
