For now, it seems that fans will continue to wait for an explanation for the page’s absence, if they ever choose to divulge why they have been off and on in the past few days.
Original story is as follows:
On March 23, fans are beginning to realize that TikTokroom may have been deactivated for good. At the time of writing the famous Instagram cannot be found for the second time in the space of a week, with an error reading ‘page not available.’
Concern first started on Wednesday, March 17, after the Instagram tea page for all things TikTok-related disappeared from the mobile and desktop app.
With more than 2 million followers and over 15,000 posts, it is a big loss to the community of TikTok drama lovers. The account describes itself as the ‘First ever TikTok shaderoom’ and regularly posts screenshots and videos revealing some of the drama that happens behind the scenes among influencers.
The account was one of the first places to publicize that Charli D’Amelio was losing followers by the hundreds of thousands back in September 2020, and has always been quick to reveal much of the drama surrounding budding romances or sudden break-ups among the app’s most popular creators.
TikTokRoom even became so influential that it hosted its own awards online at the end of 2020, crowning Sway as the best content house, and Larray as the funniest TikToker among other categories.
The page was created by TikTok fans Nat and Elasia as just a place to collate some TikTok drama, and little did they realize just how much it would blow up. Following this, several other TikTok shade pages cropped up with many also gaining popularity rapidly, however, TikTokRoom has always taken the top spot.
Where is TikTokRoom?
At first, it was not the end for the iconic shade account. On their back-up page @tiktokroomig, the creators behind the account posted a story letting people know they had only temporarily disabled the account and returned online soon after.

However, TikTokRoom has now disappeared yet again, and Instagram’s rules dictate that you can not deactivate an account more than once in the space of 7 days. This spells trouble for the account, possibly meaning it has been permanently deleted.
This is leading to speculation over what went wrong, and there is not yet any word from the page’s creators on their backup page or their Twitter.
For those missing their daily dose of internet drama, there are several other Instagram pages that should be able to fulfill your needs. TikTok-specific accounts include TikTokInsiders, TikTokleakins, and theshadeoftheroom.
