TikTok is the number one place to go to find the latest viral content online, with a practically endless amount of videos to scroll through each day.

You can post a story up to 15 seconds long. Every story published will be featured as an in-feed post along with the tag ‘story’ on it.

Every story posted on the app within 24 hours will be displayed as segments in the story post. This means that if you want to post something which is longer than 15 seconds, you will need to split it up.

But what happens if you want to delete a story you’ve already posted? Here’s everything to know about how to delete stories on TikTok.
