Why Won’t My TikTok Drafts Load:

There can be several reasons, such as slow internet connection, violation of terms of service of TikTok, inappropriate content, etc. due to which you are not able to upload a video saved in a draft folder on TikTok.

Let’s discuss the most reported reasons for this:

1. Due to Violations of Account

Every platform, whether online or offline has a set of rules and terms of service, which every user and visitor have to follow when using it.

And, when you violate those rules, for the first, and the second time you will be given a warning and let go. However, if you continue to do the same mistake again, you have to face certain consequences.

In the case of TikTok, when a user violates the rules, TikTok warns at first to next time, snatch or disable some of the features.

A similar would have happened, here. Due to a violation or some inappropriate activity, TikTok might not be allowing you to upload a video from the draft.

2. You’re Blocked from Posting till a Certain Date

As discussed above, because of a violation or inappropriate activity on TikTok, you have lost the option to upload a video from the draft section.

Don’t worry, TikTok will release the feature after some days as it might have blocked you from posting till a certain date only.

Well, if you will ask, how many days? Then, only TikTok would have the answer to it.

You might find it strange, but the working mechanisms of TikTok are not too open and not known by many. TikTok has kept all his details a secret.
