MrBeast First Person To Reach a million Followers On Instagram Threads
Jimmy Donaldson, better known by his YouTube username MrBeast, has broken a new record by being the first person to reach 2.4 million followers on Instagram Threads.
Since its release a little more than 48 hours ago, the brand-new social media app that Meta developed as a competitor to Twitter has already garnered a user base of more than 44 million people. There are 44 million users on Threads, and 2.4 million follow MrBeast.
On July 7, at 10:14 am EDT, the YouTuber, who is 25 years old, gained one million subscribers. This was only a few hours after the YouTuber joined the app. Mr. Beast has earned himself a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records by becoming the first person to attain this particular benchmark.
The precise moment that MrBeast’s 2.4M Threads followers transformed into 1 million is displayed in a video produced by Guinness World Records. However, when the firm keeping records tweeted the video, Mr. Beast said, “Shhhhh, don’t let the Twitter police know I’m cheating on them.”
After only three posts, MrBeast has already amassed a following of 2.4 million people on Threads, described as “Future Threads CEO” in his profile bio.
Threads is a text-based software designed by Meta to compete with Twitter. It became available to users in over one hundred countries on Wednesday night, including the United States of America, India, Britain, Japan, and Australia.
