TikToker exposes influencers who edit and distort their videos

This 23-year-old TikToker has made it her mission to expose the truth behind all those perfect photos and videos on social media. Sophie, aka @residualdata, is showing her 72,000 TikTok followers how to navigate the distorted reality presented on social media. In a typical post, Sophie pulls photos and videos from influencers and campaigns to explain how they've been edited. On August 16, she responded to a viral fashion video that was circulating on Douyin (Chinese TikTok). The clip showed a slender woman with an hourglass figure walking down the street. A distorted pole and the heavily blurred background were signs that the footage had been altered. Many didn't realize the video was a fake at all
