JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WKBW) — The social media app Tik Tok is a new and fun way to express yourself through short videos. A Jamestown teen has been posting videos with major success.

"There was one point where I was making like $3,000 a month," said Joshua Jolly, a Jamestown High School Senior.

He started last year, by posting cute videos of him and his two dogs, Puddin and Dozer.
