Despite many seeing Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins as the face of Twitch, he’s got some competition when it comes to the fastest growing channel on the platform. 

Ever since Fortnite Battle Royale exploded in popularity in early 2018, Ninja has been enjoying his time at the top of the viewership charts on an almost daily basis.

Ninja was one of the first streamers to really feel the effects of the game’s popularity, hitting his peak in the Spring when he racked up over 200,000 subscribers on Twitch.

While Ninja was rising to success, FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was also exploding into the scene on the back of some incredible performances during the popular ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament series.

As Ninja’s subscriber and follow count has started to average out after such amazing highs earlier this year, Tfue has continued blowing up with no end in sight.

After beating out Ninja in total followers gained a couple weeks back, Tfue has once again held onto the mantle with another solid week of followership. According to TwitchMetrics, Tfue has gained close to 145.000 followers in the last seven days, while that number sits at around 125,000 for Ninja.

Tfue might be slowly gaining on Ninja on that front, but it’s unlikely that he’ll be able to catch up with Ninja in terms of total followers and overall hours watched, though.

With 11.8 million followers on Twitch, Ninja managed to pull in 4.8 million hours watched over the last seven days, coming in second only to Riot Games, who managed 7.2 million due to the 2018 LoL World Championships currently taking place.

It’s not time to count Tfue out, however, as despite having almost nine million fewer followers at 3.1 million, Tfue racked up an impressive 3.4 million viewer hours in the last seven days.

It might be a while before Tfue reaches Ninja level’s of popularity with an appearance on Ellen, but Tfue could certainly get there one day if he continues this level of growth.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch: Pokimane
Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
