He’s done it again. Known for his incredibly successful YouTube channel, philanthropic endeavors, and staggering social media numbers, internet sensation Jimmy Donaldson, better known as MrBeast, has reached another significant milestone. With a fan base of 85 million followers on TikTok, 39 million on Instagram, and 167 million subscribers on YouTube, MrBeast has added another feather to his cap as he recently became the first individual to gain a million followers on Meta’s new social app Threads.

Threads, a social media platform developed by Meta, Mark Zuckerberg’s company, went live recently, aiming to provide a “friendly” alternative to Twitter. This platform comes in response to the controversial changes Elon Musk introduced since purchasing Twitter in October 2022. In less than a week, over 30 million people signed up for Threads, making it available in over 100 countries and in 30 languages. Despite these impressive numbers, MrBeast surpassed even the app’s creator, Mark Zuckerberg, as the first to reach the 1 million followers mark.

This achievement by MrBeast is testament to his uncanny ability to attract and engage his audience, regardless of the platform. On TikTok, MrBeast’s posts receive an average of 23 million views with 2.5 million likes per post. Now on Threads, his approach appears to be equally effective, having reached the 1 million follower count after posting just three times.

MrBeast’s incredible follower count across multiple platforms can be attributed to his unique, high-energy content that blends entertainment and philanthropy, a combination that has resonated with millions across the globe. From re-enacting popular TV shows like ‘Squid Game’ to arranging large cash giveaways, and even funding surgeries for the visually impaired, MrBeast consistently sets himself apart from the crowd.

The 25-year-old internet mogul’s success isn’t limited to viral stunts and philanthropy, however. As his popularity grows, so does his business empire, which some speculate could be worth over a billion dollars. Despite his success and increasing wealth, MrBeast remains relatable to his audience, maintaining his everyday appearance and charm that has endeared him to so many of his followers.
