Triller Changes Tune on Inflating User Numbers

  Triller Changes Tune on Inflating User Numbers A day after Billboard reported that short-form video service Triller has been inflating its monthly active users in press releases when compared to what the company reports to rights holders — which the company did not deny — Triller is changing its stance. In a second statement to Billboard on Wednesday (Feb. 17), Triller CEO Mike Lu now says the company never inflated user numbers and Triller should be valued at over $10 billion based on Billboard’s report. “We have never inflated any user numbers,” Lu says.

A story about youth

“Cités is a series of a new genre that shows us the tribulations of a group of friends (aged 15 to 25) across France, connected to TikTok” , relates a Amazon release. "So will tell - with the inventiveness and flamboyance that we know, this very lively youth of today" , he adds.

Platform users who participated in this project had to take a quote from a well-known work and modify it as they saw fit. The director called on the candidates in a video posted on TikTok to sing, rap or dance to it.
