Who is Timmy Thick?

Timmy Thick was born on 21 August 2002, in the New York City, USA, and is a social media personality, known from earning popularity or controversy, through posting raunchy or effeminate selfies despite stating that he was a male, leading many to question his actual gender. He’s had multiple issues on social media with people wanting to disable his accounts through reporting.


The Riches of Timmy Thick

How rich is Timmy Thick? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is estimated to be over $30,000 earned through his various endeavors. His online exposure has led to numerous opportunities, and as he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also increase.

Early Life and Social Media Beginnings

Timmy grew up in New York, but very little is known about him or his family. Even his real name is a mystery, as Timmy Thick is just an online moniker that he uses. He is known to be diminutive, just five feet tall, with a stocky build that accentuates his short stature.

Growing up, he admitted to being bullied and verbally harassed, mostly while at school though he did not give any details. Even through his foray online, he has also been harassed and bullied, partly because his build has led to speculation about his gender. He has claimed that he is male, though it has not stopped the questions about him from continuing. Many have trouble believing him when he created his Instagram account in 2016 – the social media website allows users to share photos with other users, and he gained notoriety through posting effeminate selfies, with some even having him wear raunchy attire. Since then his account has slowly gained followers.

Thick’s Instagram account gained over 300,000 followers before the account was first disabled. Instagram users started complaining that his account was a negative influence, especially on children. However, he remained steadfast each time, and started opening new accounts when a previous one being disabled. His followers continued to grow, and he started posting more photos that left people questioning his gender. He also produced videos of himself twerking, and with adult oriented jokes which led many to question his age.

His followers are divided between people who support his endeavors, while others want to see his account taken down. He started boasting about having social media friends, and even bragged of being friends with Danielle Bregoli, the rapper who initially found herself fame as a meme. He also mentioned that he knows rapper and music producer Ugly God. Many have criticized him for his use of rude language and his vulgar posts. A year after his Instagram endeavors, he also created a Twitter account, and began regularly posting there as well.

Abrupt End and Copycats

With all the controversy and speculation surrounding Timmy, many started to question if he was real at all, as no one could find any true personal information about him. In a surprise, his Twitter account suddenly posted that Timmy Thick was a 24 month sociological study conducted by Harvard University; he has not tweeted since, and his Instagram account was deleted. The change of tone left many to question whether or not it was all real or just an elaborate hoax. A professor from the Harvard sociology department denied having any such study, while his fans started to speak out after his disappearance.

This was not the end however, as in 2018 the Timmy Thick Twitter account started to rise, and began posting unusual tweets, initially posting random numbers before posting coordinates that led to Area 51. The Timmy Thick Instagram account was revived but was set to private. People who managed to gain entry into the account discovered that it was a totally different person inside, dressing similar to the gender unknown social media personality. Many have stated that this is likely a copycat, though the unusual thing is that the new account is still using the same Instagram and Twitter handle that Timmy Thick owned before his sudden disappearance.

Personal Life and Social Media

For his personal life, not much is known in terms of any romantic relationships. Despite all of his vulgar and heavily criticized posts, he has never mentioned anything about having a relationship nor set any tone for his romantic preferences, only stating that he likes to think of himself as a boy. This new persona which many definitely believe is a new person has not mentioned any new personal information either. His Twitter account has admitted that someone has to fall so that someone else will rise, confirming that the old Timmy Thick is no longer the one managing the account.

His Twitter account continues to be active, though it only has over 2,000 followers, not maintaining the same followership he once had during the peak of his popularity. His Instagram account is slowly growing, with it now having over 60,000 followers. Time will tell if this new person will have the same impact as the old Timmy Thick. As for now, with the lack of information, the rumors, speculation, and divided opinions abound all over the internet.

#Marks / Signs
1Played the ukelele and sang falsetto


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".


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.
