Over the years, numerous new slang terms and acronyms have emerged on the short-form video app, to the point where it’s getting harder for users to keep up, especially when an acronym can have multiple interpretations.

RS can be an alternative expression to IKR, which stands for ‘I Know Right,’ and can be used virtually the same way. For example, if someone says “that movie was boring” and you strongly agree with them, you could simply reply with either “RS” or “IKR.”

Although it is widely used on TikTok, the term wasn’t created on the app, and you may see it pop up on many other popular social media platforms.

In some contexts, RS could also refer to ‘RuneScape,’ a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. However, the former meaning is generally more common on social media apps like TikTok and Twitter.
