Popular Twitch streamer and Fortnite player Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins may have hinted at a major announcement, thanks to a vague Tweet posted on February 2.

Update: Ninja is at the NFL Honors 2019 awards show. His vague tweet and reason for not streaming today seems to be tied to his Honors appearance, where he might be presenting an award.

Original story as follows:

Ninja kept his message short, simply writing, “Big day today! :D” – much to his fans’ confusion.

Even popular streamer Timothy ‘TimTheTatMan’ Betar got in on the speculation, replying to Ninja’s Tweet with the “👀” emoji.

It is also worth noting that neither Tim nor Ninja are streaming today, which could indicate that both streamers are focusing on another, more secretive pursuit in the interim.

Ninja’s pending announcement could likewise suggest involvement with Fortnite’s recent event starring EDM artist Marshmello, which went live for players in Pleasant Park on the same day at 11:00 AM PT.

It’s not uncommon for Fortnite or its streamers to hint at upcoming events, either; in fact, Marshmello’s voice boomed out throughout the game’s map the day prior to his concert, amping up the hype for the actual event.

Fans’ speculations range from Ninja’s appearance in an additional Marshmello concert to his involvement another, major project, such as his New Year’s Eve event on December 31, 2018 – or his upcoming appearance in a 2019 Super Bowl commercial.

Ninja’s NYE event was met with some criticism, after the streamer attempted to get all of Times Square to do the ‘Floss’ with him in the midst of freezing rain.

Ninja himself had a humorous take on the fail, writing, “Word of advice: Don’t try to get 1 million New Yorkers to dance in the rain on new years,” in a Tweet following the debacle.


KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
