As an 18-year-old young man living in Staten Island New York during the middle of a worldwide pandemic, what else is there to do besides download one of the worlds most famous apps known as Tiktok.
After downloading the app in July 2019, it wasn’t until January 2020 after hitting 1 million followers that Matthew Petitto’s account blew up.
At the beginning of his fame, Matthew Petitto was one of the few Italian influencers on the app. He looked to make tick-tock‘s regarding Italian culture versus the one of American culture, and his videos seem to gain a lot of attention.
Petitto would like to take credit for the trend of “what you do says about you” and claims after he blew up people continued to make their own spin-off versions from his own. When Matthew first downloaded the app he did it simply for activity and something to do while on his phone.
He never dreamed of becoming the influencer that he used today with such a large following, but now that he is in that spot he looks forward to what he can do in the future for his audience.
