If TikTok is feeling “mid” about you, it’s time to step your game up.
The latest edition of Gen Z slang includes the term “mid.” It’s not exactly the worse thing you can be, it’s not exactly great either — it’s mid. The new internet lingo is a way for people to express disappointment about something they deem to be mediocre or run of the mill.
What does “mid” mean on TikTok?
“1.7 million [likes] for a mid edit,” a user commented.
“Bro, the edit was so mid,” another said.
The users felt the edit had unearned praise and couldn’t figure out why it had so many likes and views. According to Urban Dictionary, mid means, “Used to insult or degrade an opposing opinion, labeling it average or poor quality.” Some people might preemptively call their content “mid” to avoid criticism.
It sometimes refers to s-tier lists
Other times it’s an abbreviation for “midsize”
