What does ATP mean on TikTok?

ATP could have several potential meanings, but on TikTok, one of the most common definitions is ‘At This Point.’

In this way you can use ATP at the start or end of sentences to mean ‘right now’ or ‘at the stage we are at now,’ and it can fit into a number of different contexts.

Another definition that ATP can have on the app is ‘Answer The Phone.’ This is less common to see in videos and comment sections, but there’s a chance you may see it in a DM conversation if somebody is telling you to pick up your phone.
