Over the past few weeks we’ve covered the ongoing privacy concerns with TikTok and the potential alternative platforms. It seems that one of the major TikTok stars Josh Richards has announced he will be switching to Triller. His boys at the Sway house Griffin Johnson and Noah Beck will join Josh in the switch and other famous TikTokers will probably follow shortly.
You may remember Josh Richards interview with Dave Portnoy on IG Live a few weeks ago. Seems like the kid actually has a good head on his shoulders and had the following to say:
“After seeing the U.S. and other countries’ governments’ concerns over TikTok — and given my responsibility to protect and lead my followers and other influencers — I followed my instincts as an entrepreneur and made it my mission to find a solution”
Josh will leave his 20 million followers but he will become the Chief Strategy Officer of Triller at only 18 years old. Ya boy also got signed to Warner Music this week. When other TikTokers see the moves Josh is making this week it will certainly influence them to make their own moves. The battle to surpass and replace TikTok is heating up with billions of dollars being thrown around. Triller certainly seems to be in a good position right now but make sure to subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date on this and other important news!
