It doesn’t take much time to realize that there are so many people and communities on Clapper. Just a few minutes of scrolling will show you art, politics, comedians, reaction videos, cooking, gardening, viral news – it’s honestly a little mindboggling! With so much to celebrate on the app, we wanted to start a series to help you explore what the Clapper Fam has to offer. Watchlist is a monthly collection of creators to help you explore a specific Clapper niche, and this week we’re highlighting our Top Veterans.
Before we begin, we want to say that while we only have 5 listed below, we have innumerable incredible veterans on Clapper. It was nearly impossible to narrow down our options and find just 5 creators we could recommend. We appreciate each and every person who served in the armed forces on and off Clapper.
Watchlist: Top 5 Veterans 🍿
Largest Community – @theblackspiderman 🫂
@theblackspiderman is a Navy Veteran and BJJ Black Belt-World Champion. While his platform is all about fitness and being an athlete, his Clapper profile shows us a different side of his personality. @theblackspiderman posts reactions to viral videos, his daily thoughts and musings, and even snippets of Brazilian jiu-jitsu. We love seeing snippets of the personality behind this incredible athlete!
Most Engagement – @BethanyRenea 👍
Bethany is an OEF Veteran and a longtime Clapper creator. Her content started off with reactions to current events and viral news, but the real hook was Bethany’s humor. But recently, her platform has expanded even further! When new creators were joining the app earlier this year, Bethany was one of the OGs who stepped up to the plate and helped people learn the ropes. She’s also started to share more about her travels in a camper, including some easy (and super tasty!) recipes she’s been creating.
Clapper Champion – @Shellrae 🏆
While all of our veterans (and a lot of our other creators!) do a fantastic job of spreading the word about Clapper, @Shellrae blows us away every time. When she isn’t recruiting new creators, @Shellrae creates a lot of positive content. She asks questions of the day to get to know her community, shares videos about her gardening, and is an avid runner. She shares her real life even when it isn’t pretty, and we find her story and content so inspiring.
UK Veteran – @steve_lufc_official 🎖️
Steve is an English Veteran and a true Clapper OG. He creates a variety of content on his page, including daily advice, motivational words, and sweet (or comedic) videos about his wife. Steve is also part of Team Positive Waves, a group that celebrates creators all across the app. Steve’s page is a huge source of joy for the Clapper community.
People’s Choice – @_Kicks 👟
We recently got to talk to @_Kicks for our Clapper Talks Radio Show and we had such a fantastic time! @_Kicks is a Navy and Army National Guard veteran who deals with PTSD from his time serving. His content started off discussing mental illness and his service dog, but it’s morphed into his awesome custom shoe designs and helping new creators learn the app. And sugar gliders, and who doesn’t love them? His videos are motivational and overwhelmingly positive, and we love seeing him pop up on our page.
