Trump gain >10M followers on new platform


With Donald Trump being banned from most major platforms, thereby losing his 88 million followers on Twitter (6th largest account), there is a question of whether he will move to an alternative platform. If he does, he may pull a substantial number of users with him, and regain many of his followers.

Will Trump gain at least 10M followers on another platform?

  • If an official Trump account reaches at least 10M followers (no matter the terminology) on a platform that isn't Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Twitch, Youtube, Instagram, Snapchat, Tiktok, Discord, or Twilio, (such as Parler or Gab), this resolves positively.
  • This must be achieved before the next US presidential election in November 2024.
  • Platforms must be open to the public.
