Someone on the new social media app Threads has already surpassed a million followers, and if you’ve read the headline, you’ll recognize MrBeast.
The popular YouTuber, real name Jimmy Donaldson, has amassed a significant online following because to his films that contain enormous stunts and large prize awards for participants.
Someone once attempted to pay him a billion dollars to purchase his YouTube channel, so it’s no wonder that he’d be an early adopter of an app like Threads and make it big on there.
Threads, which is owned and maintained by Meta, is linked to your Instagram profile, so if you join the new platform, you can effectively import your followers and they’ll be hooked up to you if they followed you before.
Because MrBeast is so well-known, it’s not surprising that he’s the first person on the new site to reach a million followers, yet it is a testament to how many people are giving Threads a try.
Threads, which was launched by Mark Zuckerberg’s parent firm Meta, has been dubbed a “Twitter killer,” yet the iconic social media site appears to require little outside assistance at the moment.
Twitter has been in a shambles ever since Elon Musk took over the network, dismissed a slew of individuals that kept the social media site running, and then questioned why things stopped working.
Various platform improvements have also gone poorly, such as eliminating the verification system and replacing it with the $8 Twitter Blue, only to learn the hard way why a verification system could be helpful.
The recent uproar over Musk’s announcement that users’ access to tweets would be momentarily ‘rate capped’ adds another straw to the camel’s already overburdened back.
While Twitter is extremely popular and any potential extinction of the service has been greatly exaggerated, many users believe it has deteriorated in recent months and have been exploring for alternatives.
Meta will be hoping that they choose Threads, which launched today (6 July), as the site where everyone can leave Twitter.
Other sites, like as Mastodon, have attempted to establish themselves as a destination for Twitter users fleeing Musk’s crumbling kingdom, but none has taken off in a significant enough way to effectively topple Twitter yet.
Millions of people have already signed up for Threads, and Zuckerberg has poked fun at Musk in the process, claiming that the internet might benefit from a “public conversations app” with over a billion users.
Twitter hasn’t quite reached that level of popularity, and it appears that Threads intends to overtake and supersede the big blue bird.
