Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins recently announced a switch from Twitch to Mixer, and has already broken the site’s subscriber record before his first broadcast.

Ninja is one of the biggest streamers in the world, and recently shocked fans everywhere with an unexpected announcement that he would be leaving Twitch in favor of Microsoft’s streaming platform Mixer starting from August 2. 

The American shared this news on Twitter, where he posted a short video regarding the announcement, alongside a simple message “The next chapter,”. 

Less than five hours after his initial announcement Ninja posted another Tweet, stating that “Over 100k subscribers have been redeemed so far on Mixer”. This is an incredibly high amount, even dwarfing some of the most popular Twitch channels. 

While the streamers’ popularity is undoubtedly one of the core reasons behind this incredible wave of support, it is definitely helped by a “limited-time offer” by Mixer, which allows any user to subscribe to the American for free.

Ninja’s massive wave of influence doesn’t stop at subscribers. Just a few hours after his announcement, the streaming platform reached the top of the App Store charts, overtaking household names like YouTube, Gmail, and Instagram as fans flock to watch him.

The American has not commented on his subscriber numbers since his initial Tweet but has already reached over 250,000 followers on Microsoft’s streaming platform, and with users being offered free subscriptions, the number is likely to have drastically increased.


Corpse Husband shares heartbreaking update on his chronic health condition

The viral YouTube star and music artist known as ‘Corpse Husband’ has shared a grim update on his chronic health condition with his fans, leading to an outpouring of support for the content creator who has taken over the internet.

While Corpse Husband has been on YouTube for some time, he rose to the top of the platform’s ‘Whos’ Who’ in late 2020, becoming known for his deep voice and humorous Among Us streams with other top creators.

Despite his impressive popularity, the YouTuber stated in a January 2 broadcast that he might not be able to continue his career as a full-time entertainer for the long-term.

Corpse cited his chronic illnesses for this potential development, and already limits his broadcasts to one or two streams a week as a result.

(Topic begins at 1:13 in the video below.)

It doesn’t look like the outlook has become any less bleak, either, as he shared a heartbreaking update on his health in a series of tweets via his alternate account a few weeks later.

“I did my needle EMG for my nerve conduction study and got some results that are not good,” he wrote. “I don’t really know how to process it or cope with it. I still want to participate in everything coming up. If I seem off in any upcoming things, that’s why. I don’t really know what to do.”

According to Corpse, the diagnosis is that there is little to no treatment for his nerve condition, with doctors stating he would be in pain without any hope of reprieve throughout his lifetime.

“They probably identified the problem with my arms,” he continued. “They basically told me I’m going to be in pain like this for the rest of my life and that it’s only going to get worse, and there’s not much I can do about it besides relieve it sometimes with injections. Idk.”

Thus far, Corpse has been met with ample support from his fans and fellow creators, with the likes of Pokimane and even Valkyrae wishing him well amid such a devastating diagnosis.

While Corpse has been relatively open about his conditions in the past, this latest update truly brings the matter into perspective — but luckily, he’s got a wealth of supportive friends and fans to help him through it.
