CallMeCarson finally returned to YouTube with a new upload on April 23 after a near six week break from the platform amid a cheating controversy.

The popular YouTuber — who boasts over 2.7 million subscribers on his primary account — announced on March 12 he would be taking an “indefinite break.” Initially citing mental health as the reason behind his extended leave, the YouTuber later confirmed a cheating scandal was behind his stint away from the platform.

His partner at the time, Katerino, had seemingly cheated on him with fellow YouTuber Fitz. It was later revealed in an April 14 video she had indeed “led him on.” After another brief period of silence amidst the scandal, Carson finally ended his hiatus and returned to YouTube with a brand new upload.

While it may not be an entirely new video, Carson’s April 23 upload began with new footage of the YouTuber as he introduced a feature-length compilation.

“It’s okay, I’m back,” he said while emerging from under his desk to start the new video. “I hope nothing bad happened while I was gone.”

“I was originally going to put up a best of 2019 video but then the last few months happened,” he explained, leading to the creation of a longer video that included highlights from 2020 as well.

The two-hour compilation featured some of his most memorable gaming moments, hilarious Discord highlights, and various IRL skits as well.

There’s no telling exactly when the popular personality might get back into a regular schedule on the platform once again, but he did tease more content was on the way.

“Don’t worry, there’s going to be more videos this year, I just wanted to put up a ‘best of’ compilation of the stuff that I think is funny,” he explained.

Some of the memories in focus throughout the video clearly played a huge role throughout the YouTuber’s growth and still hold an important place in his heart. You can take the trip down memory lane and check out the full video for yourself.

It could still be a while before CallMeCarson is uploading on a more regular basis, but the YouTuber assured that new content will absolutely be pushed out this year.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
