flop account(redirected from flop accounts)
An Instagram account intended to facilitate discussion of a particular topic or range of topics (such as fandom, politics, or social issues), typically exclusively by teens, who often administer such accounts collaboratively. The term derives from the common practice of posting "flops," things presented for ridicule or criticism. More and more teens are turning to flop accounts to debate sensitive issues.
