Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has become the first Twitch user in history to hit over 10 million followers.
Taking to Twitter to react to the incredible milestone, the streaming superstar said “this milestone is seriously ridiculous and the one I am most proud of”.
The 27-year-old concluded by saying “I have been streaming for a very very long time... and I cannot express how grateful I am to be in the position I am in. Love you guys”.
Known for his incredible Fortnite skills, the former professional Halo player’s meteoric rise in 2018 shows no signs of slowing up any time soon.
In fact, he is currently featuring at the legendary Lallapalooza music festival, playing with famous artists and special guests in the event’s first ever Gaming Lounge.
Despite being a Twitch veteran, Ninja’s real success came after he switched to playing Fortnite Battle Royale, a game that he quickly became the face of and one that has taken over the world this year.
Ninja’s nearest competition for followers on Twitch is Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, a former CS:GO pro that now plays PUBG the majority of the time and has just under four million followers.
Snapping at shroud’s heels is TSM’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, another Fortnite streamer that has seen incredible growth in 2018.
However, with over six million more followers than the man in second place, Ninja’s king of Twitch crown looks set to remain firmly on his head for a long time to come.
