Who is Timmy Thick?

Timmy Thick was born on 21 August 2002, in New York, USA, and is a social media personality, best known for gaining fame through the website Instagram on which he started by posting controversial photos, which has gained him both followers as well as detractors.


The Net Worth of Timmy Thick

How rich is Timmy Thick? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $30,000, earned through success in his various endeavors. His online fame has led him to numerous opportunities including speculated friendships with some high profile names. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Online Beginnings

There is almost no information available about Timmy’s education, childhood, and family. Even his real name is not known – many believe that his online name is just a moniker to hide his true identity. Growing up, he was noticeably of short stature, only growing to around five feet tall, which along with a stocky build led to a lot of negative experiences in school.

According to him, he was often physically and verbally harassed in school though he hasn’t shared any specific information about it. This trend would continue when he began posting photos online through the website Instagram, one of the reasons being due to his content which often consisted of posts featuring him in effeminate clothing, and poses leading many to question his sexual orientation. He quickly started to earn fame online after posting selfies in 2016, but has also attracted a lot of cyber bullying, as he has been unapologetic when it came to his posts.

Rise to Fame

His fame grew even further as he continued to upload to Instagram, which at the time was becoming one of the most popular social media services in the world. Instagram is a photo and video sharing service owned by Facebook, which can be integrated to other social media platforms. One of the reasons for its popularity is due to how easy it is to upload and edit one’s photos or videos on the website. Since its inception, Instagram has become one of the top social media platforms in the world having over 800 million registered users as of 2018.

He had managed to gain over 300,000 followers on his account before it was disabled because of numerous complaints Instagram was receiving over his content. Many stemmed from the accusation that he was not a good influence on children, who can be very receptive to what they see online. This did not stop him, as he continued to create more accounts as each previous one was shut down. He also started to delve into more adult oriented jokes and posts, including videos of him twerking, and many containing a lot of profanity leading to more questions about him, as well as criticisms regarding his online existence.

A New Timmy Thick

People’s curiosity into who Timmy Thick actually is could not be sated, as there was no information about him apart from his social media accounts. Many started to believe that the account was launched just to create controversy online, and never contained a lot of truth to it.

In a surprise move, his Twitter suddenly posted that Timmy Thick was just a sociological experiment done by Harvard University, which lasted for two years. The way the post was structured was unusual, and people reached out to Harvard’s sociological department only to discover that no such experiment existed. For some time his account remained silent, but in 2018 he started posting again on his Twitter account, teasing what seemed to be a return to social media. His Instagram account was set to private, and when some of his fans tried to follow the account, they discovered that the person posting new photos was a totally different person altogether. The person now seemed more feminine, but sported a similar look to that of the original account owner.

Personal Life and Social Media

For his personal life, not much is known in terms of any of Timmy’s romantic relationships. He has never mentioned anything about his life in that aspect, only mentioning that he thinks of himself as a boy. Even the new person holding the Timmy Thick account has not posted anything about relationships.

His Twitter account has now become a little more active, though it has yet to rival the peak of its popularity, and was also a means to confirm cryptically that there is actually someone new managing the account, implying that the old Timmy Thick is gone. His Instagram account continues to receive uploads, though it is now set to private so it doesn’t attract as much controversy as it used to. Time will tell if this new person will have the same impact that the old Timmy had. Over time, many people started to realize that the account was not an actual person, but was just made to spark some controversy online. This led to the dismay of many of his followers, though time will tell if more information will be revealed about the entire episode. As for now, it doesn’t seem to be heading in a direction where people’s questions will be answered.

#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.
