Dr Disrespect has sensationally revealed a trophy he says was given to him by Twitter after reaching “1 billion followers,” in what would be far and away the most impressive landmark the platform has ever seen.
The popular Twitch streamer announced that he had reached a total of 1 billion Twitter followers on May 16, just two days after claiming to have reached the same number in YouTube subscribers just two days before.
Both milestones would sound incredibly impressive to any of his fans, if they were to be genuine, but that hasn’t stopped people from sending some firm handshakes in his direction after he broke the ‘news’ on social media.
The trophy itself – he says – is made from a mix of very expensive elements, too, which would make it well worthy of both the achievement, and for the self-proclaimed best video gamer of all time.
“We just hit 1 Billion followers on Twitter. They also sent us a trophy already… It’s made of tanzanite, blue diamond and gold. Firm handshakes,” he tweeted alongside a photo of the impressive piece of silverware.

The Two-Time has actually reached a total of one million followers, a very impressive number in its own right, and was sent messages of congratulations by a number of accounts on the platform – including Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, gaming hardware company Razer, and others.
Jesus, Doc. One billion on Twitter and Youtube in the same week? Incredible.

For those that have worked out that the announcement has a slight inaccuracy, though, you may be wondering who actually has the highest amount of followers on Twitter.
The rankings, as of the time of writing, are led by singer Katy Perry – who boasts over 107 million – and is around one million away from the man in second place with 106 million, the former President of the United States, Barack Obama.
That means that Dr Disrespect’s tally, if it was to be 1 billion, would be far and away the highest ever recorded on the platform. However, that – sadly for him – is not the case just yet. It would to take a vertical leap of the highest order to get to his statistics to that level, but he’s certainly moving in the right direction.
