Nadeshot proposes unique challenge to get The Mob verified on Twitter

Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has tasked each member of The Mob with a unique 24-hour challenge in order for them to finally be verified on Twitter. 

Classify, Mako, Froste, and Avalanche have grown to internet fame due to their constant antics and meme-sharing on Twitter under the 100 Thieves banners. 

Having been signed to the organization back in March, the group of content creators have been eager to attain their verification ticks ever since, constantly nagging Nadeshot to make it happen. 

It seems as though their desperate pleas might finally be paying off as one big challenge from the 100 Thieves CEO could see them all rewarded in just 24-hours. 

Twitter: 100ThievesThe content creators all reside in the 100 Thieves Mob House in Los Angeles.

Throughout a December 2 video, Nadeshot outlined his unique challenge to The Mob, detailing exactly what the four content creators must do in order to finally receive their verification ticks on the social media platform.

“I’m sick and tired of you bothering me and bugging me literally every single day to be verified on Twitter,” he amusingly started.

“You guys aren’t responsible enough and mature enough to be verified yet. When you see that verified checkmark you think ‘this is a true role model, this person is a celebrity in their own right.’ And I’m just not sure if you guys are there yet.”

Despite his concerns, the 100 Thieves CEO went on to issue one final challenge for the squad, stating that if they can “stay off social media for 24 hours,” then Nadeshot will do everything in his power to get them all “verified on Twitter.”

Often Tweeting consistently throughout the day, each member of The Mob is known for constantly being active on the Twitter timeline, thus, it didn’t take long for them to respond to the amusing challenge.

“Staying off Twitter for a whole day is gonna be SO *ss. WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO ALL DAY TOMORROW????” Froste hilariously responded to the challenge.

It’s likely the content creator hasn’t gone a full day without Tweeting since being signed to 100 Thieves.

“Option #1: Tweet all day like a crackhead and try to stay off this ADDICTION of an app for 24 hours starting midnight to get verified….Option #2: I can’t do this guys I’m sorry this is a cry for help I legit can’t,” Classify expressed. 

With just over 400,000 followers on Twitter combined, and an additional 50,000 following their collective Mob account, there’s no denying that they are extremely popular figures on the social media platform.

Going against what helped them grow as content creators, it’ll be hilarious to see the outcome of the challenge when Nadeshot’s test comes to an end as the clock ticks over to December 4.

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.
