“I don’t know how to use TikTok, but I can write in cursive, do long division, and tell time”

"I don’t know how to use TikTok, but I can write in cursive, do long division, and tell time on clocks with hands” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. The speaker is “old school” and is probably over thirty years old.

“I don’t know how to use TikTok, but I can write in cursive, do long division, drive a stick shift, and tell time on clocks with hands.... so there’s that” was posted on Facebook by Clara Jefferson Hoban on October 27, 2020. “I don’t know how to use TikTok, but I can write in cursive, do long division and and tell time on clocks with hands........so there’s that” was posted on Twitter by Debbie on November 1, 2020. “I don’t really know how to use TikTok, but I can write in cursive, do long division, & tell time on clocks with hands. So there’s that...” was posted on Twitter by Friends Call me GRIZZ on November 7, 2020.


Wikipedia: TikTok
TikTok, known in China as Douyin (Chinese: 抖音; pinyin: Dǒuyīn), is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance. The social media platform is used to make a variety of short-form videos, from genres like dance, comedy, and education, that have a duration from 3 seconds to 1 minute (3 minutes for some users). TikTok is an international version of Douyin, which was originally released in the Chinese market in September 2016.

No, I can’t do Snapchat or Tiktok but I can write in cursive,
do math without a calculator and tell time on a clock with hands.
