The Wealth of Timmy Thick

How rich is Timmy Thick? As of early-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is just over $30,000, earned through success in his various endeavors. His online popularity has led to numerous opportunities and a divided followership. As he continues these endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Social Media Beginnings

There is very little information available about Timmy’s childhood, his family, and his education. Even his real name is not known as many believe that Timmy Thick is just an online moniker to hide his true identity. One of his most noticeable traits is his short stature – he’s stated in his posts that he is only five feet tall; this height has also given way to a stockier build.

According to him, he grew up with a lot of experiences of bullying, and was often physically harassed in school; he was also verbally harassed though has not given specific details about it. Even when he started posting his photos online, he also became a victim of cyber bullying, primarily because of his online content. He started posting selfies of himself wearing female clothing in effeminate pose,s which led to a lot of speculation about his gender, but he has repearedly said that he is male – his actions have led to a lot of questions. All of this notoriety began in 2016, when he created his account on Instagram and started posting his selfies.

Online Fame

Since starting his Instagram account, Thick’s followers have grown at a steady pace. Instagram is a photo and video sharing service owned by Facebook, that allows users to easily post content with user friendly filter editing software. These posts can then be sorted through tags which other users can search. It is one of the most popular social media related services toda,y with over 800 million registered users as of 2019. He gained over 300,000 followers before his account was disabled due to numerous reports stemming from thecontention that his content would/could prove a bad influence to children.

It did not stop him however, as he continued to open accounts and post content. He also started posting videos of himself twerking, and delivering adult oriented jokes. He even put a lot of profanity in his posts leading many to question his age. His popularity led to divisiveness, as many supported his content while others wanted to take him down. He began to brag that he was friends with other popular personalities such as the rapper Ugly God and another hip hop personality Danielle Bregoli, who initially earned fame as a meme.

A Sudden End and a New Timmy Thick

As his fame grew, many started to research and find out who Timmy really was, but could find no personal information about him. It was starting to become a common belief that Timmy Thick is just a persona to create controversy online. He surprised many of his followers when his Twitter account suddenly posted that he was actually just a sociological experiment conducted by Harvard University for the last two years. The way the post was structured was very unusual, and even with this statement, many still questioned whether it was real or not.

A professor from the sociology department of Harvard denied the school had anything to do with Timmy Thick. There was silence for a while, but in 2018 the Timmy Thick Twitter account started to post unusual tweets, referencing coordinates to Area 51 and other random numbers. A Timmy Thick Instagram account was then created, but it was set to private. Followers who have managed to be accepted into the Timmy Thick account revealed that it was a totally different person in there. The person who now managed the account seemed more of a woman, but still sported a look similar to that of the original Timmy Thick.

Personal Life and Social Media

For his personal life, nothing is known in terms of any romantic relationships. Even through all of his posts, he never mentioned about this aspect of his life, only mentioning that he likes to think of himself as a boy. Even the new person handling the account has not mentioned anything about romantic endeavors.

His Twitter account continues to stay active with over 2,000 followers though it has yet to rival the peak of his popularity. The account has confirmed that someone else is now managing the account through a cryptic tweet stating that someone else will rise when someone falls. His Instagram account is set to private, though it has now managed to gain over 60,000 followers. Even in the past two years, speculation continues to abound with this new Timmy Thick, though it remains a question as to whether or not this new person will be able to match the same impact the old Timmy Thick had. As for now, a lot of information about him or her remains a mystery and they (or s/he) look to keep it that way.

Quotes

#Quote
1I'd love to see Christ come back to crush the spirit of hate and make men put down their guns. I'd also like just one more hit single.
2[on early 20th-century American popular songs] They put love on an angelic throne. Love is the same today, except it's gone down to a more debased situation. Too many do's and don'ts. I want to thrill the audience with these songs from the days of the Victrola. You know, everyone talks of black man's soul, rhythm, and blues. No one talks about the white man's soul. The white man's soul, in music, was songs like "In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree" and "Give My Regards to Broadway".

Facts

#Fact
1Met Vicki Budinger ("Miss Vicki") on June 3, 1969, when she asked him to sign a book of his poetry during his appearance at a Philadelphia department store. Smittened, he tracked her down and arranged a date. They conducted a long-distance relationship by phone as he continued his tour. After Tim announced his engagement to Vicki on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) that September, Johnny Carson invited the couple to marry on the show.
2Once conducted a mock wedding ceremony with Muppet Miss Piggy as the bride.
3Used to take eight baths a day.
4His mausoleum crypt lists both his legal and stage names.
5He never bought or used a professional carrying case for his ukulele. Through his career, he carried both it and his sheet music in a brown paper shopping bag.
6Was buried with both a ukulele and a single tulip in his coffin.
7Married 17-year-old Vicki Budinger--"Miss Vicki"--on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) on December 17, 1969. Over 45 million people tuned in to watch the marriage, which was broadcast live. It got the highest Nielsen ratings ever for a talk show--85% of all households watching television during that hour were watching the wedding. Photos of the ceremony ran in magazines and newspapers worldwide.
8Appeared on "The King's Court" segment of WWE Raw (1993), where his trademark ukulele was destroyed by Jerry Lawler after Tim rebutted the crowd's "Burger King" chants by calling Lawler the Dairy Queen.
9Toured with the Great American Circus in the 1980s, and also played a villainous circus performer in a low-budget movie (Blood Harvest (1987)).
10As his career went on, "Tulips" became the only song he still performed in a falsetto voice; the rest of his act was in his natural baritone.
11Always seemed to prefer "the chase" in romance to actually being with someone, and favored long-distance relationships. He bought adjoining houses for himself and his wife, and one or the other would visit daily (when he wasn't on tour) rather than share a home.
12While performing at Caesar's Palace, he decided to reap the rewards of success--studying the hotel's room-service menu, he ordered one of everything they served.
13Radio shock-jock Howard Stern became a latter-day supporter of Tiny's career, speaking with him often by phone on his show in the mid-'90s.
14While employing many childlike motifs and themes in his work, and even videotaping a pilot for a proposed children's show, Tiny actually didn't get along well with kids. His own childhood had been troubled, and he remained wary of the downside of child behavior and perceptions.
15Considered himself a "performing musicologist", and his live shows were peppered with historic and regional songs wherever he went. He also wrote press articles about great songs and recordings of the past, showing a formidable knowledge of the subject.
16While he no doubt missed the financial peaks of his heyday, he never tired of performing, and it didn't matter if his audience consisted of one person or 1000. He maintained a busy tour schedule from the mid-'60s until the end of his life.
17Made his last The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) appearance in the summer of 1979, wearing a jacket (made in Australia, where he'd been touring) that pictured several classic comic-book covers. Also performed a rousing version of Rod Stewart's hit "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?".
18Appeared as his namesake in a television commercial spoofing the Dickens story, during the 1995 holiday season. Also recorded a Christmas album, not released until after his death.
19His daughter Tulip Victoria was born May 10, 1971.
20Suffered from congestive heart failure in the last year of his life.
21Suffered headaches early in his life and began writing with his left hand, which he credited with curing the headaches.
22His widow, Miss Sue, has been maintaining an effort for Tiny Tim to be inducted in the "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame", which has been a controversial issue.
23Interred at Lakewood Cemetery, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
24Lebanese father and Jewish mother.
25His most famous recording, "Tip Toe Thru' the Tulips With Me" (written by Al Dubin and Joseph A. Burke), reached #17 on the US charts in June 1968. His wedding to Vicki Budinger--"Miss Vicki"--was broadcast nationwide on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) and seen by 35 million viewers. His daughter is named Tulip.
