Well, though TikTok’s Q&A feature makes it easier for both viewers and creators to communicate with each other and dive deeper into video content, there is a catch.
For TikTokers without 10k followers and 100k video views in the last 30 days or at an age that is below 18, you won’t be able to switch to the Creator account and use the Q&A feature.
If you live in places other than the US, UK, France, Germany, Spain, or Italy, chances are that you may also not be able to use the Creator account.
