I officially joined TikTok, the fastest growing platform with more than 800 million users. We want to be where people are. We want to create positive Arabic content and we want to listen to young people and share our stories with them. https://t.co/O3SArpFwnr— HH Sheikh Mohammed (@HHShkMohd) December 19, 2020
