What are Truth Social Trains? A train is mainly a list of people that you can follow in hopes that they will follow you back. They are a quick way to increase the number of followers you have. But you have to be careful to ensure that you always have at least 91% of the people you follow who follow you back. If not, you won’t be able to follow anyone new.
It has come to my attention that MANY train Conductors send people to this page to learn how to use trains. But a majority of those Conductors won’t acknowledge my work, or even consider putting me on one of their trains because I’m not in their clique. That’s ok. I am a free thinker and follow my own path, so I don’t quite fit in with them. My MISSION is to make Truth Social a pleasant experience for everyone. You can help me do that.
So, if you find this information helpful, please consider following me when you get back into Truth Social. My handle is @GregDickens (jot it down somewhere) and check out my profile before you hit your next train. I put out new tips every few days, and if you follow me, you’ll know about them first.
Now… How to get the MOST out of trains! When you see all the people listed on the train, you should tap on each one of them to view their profile. If they have a lot of followers but don’t follow many people, they probably won’t follow you back either. Tap the blue follow button to follow the ones you want to follow. Then tap the back arrow in the top left corner of their profile. Repeat the process for everyone on the list.
When you are done following everyone you are interested in following, tap on the ReTruth 🔁 button so that the list gets forwarded to all of your followers. After you have done that, click on the Comment 💬 button that will open a new window for you to type in. Simply type in YOUR handle and add IFBAP (but only add it if you actually do follow everyone who follows you back). This will tell the conductor that you would like a seat on an upcoming train!
One of the most powerful ways to take advantage of trains is to revisit them later. If you ReTruthed them, you can easily find them in your profile under the Truths tab. Just locate the train and click on the three dots at the bottom and choose Show Truth Details. Here you will see all the comments from other users. Look for the ones who typed their handles to get included in the next train, and pay special attention to any that added IFBAP. Then just tap on their handle and follow the process for deciding whether or not to follow them.
In the past couple of weeks, I have noticed a HUGE increase in the number of people who have landed in “follow jail”. My recommendation is that you never, ever, EVER follow anyone who has more followers than the number of people they are following. Even if they follow you first! I know that it is tempting to see that list of new followers and just follow them all back without visiting their profile. But a lot of the people who follow you that way, will unfollow you the next day. ALWAYS check that follower to following ratio and make sure they follow more than they have followers.
If you are interested in being a conductor and running your own trains, there is plenty of room! But PLEASE DO NOT just copy someone else’s train and paste it into a new Truth that will go out with you as the author. Trains are hard to build and take a lot of time. Please check out this article on becoming a Conductor so you can build your own trains!
