People are wondering what TikTokers mean when they say "we need crop" . A Reddit user asked, "What does 'we need crop' mean?" in the "TikTok Help" forum. "It means that they want you to post the meme w/o anything obstructing it so they can screenshot it," one person replied. "They want you to post the video scaled down so they can screenshot it," another wrote.
