How many people do you need to be live on TikTok?
To enable the feature, users must be at 16 years of age. TikTok has also restricted the number of accounts that can be live to users who have more than 1,000 followers.
Gift points can be earned by users who are over 18 years old, but not those under 18.
This means that you will not be able to access the going live feature if your TikTok follower limit is reached.
