Ninja upset by people looking for the next big thing on Twitch

Hugely popular streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has revealed his annoyance with people constantly searching for the next star on Twitch.

Ninja has become a household name after streaming with celebrities like Drake and Travis Scott, appearing on talk shows and magazine covers.

However, reports have suggested that the 27-year-old is no longer the number one on Twitch for subscribers. Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar was named as the top Twitch streamer on January 15.

Ninja has appeared on multiple talk shows over the last few months.

While Ninja maintains that he still has the lead, he admitted that he is frustrated that many people are more interested in who will be the next streamer to reach the top.

Responding to a comment in his chat, Ninja said: “The only thing that is frustrating is that when you were the number one streamer – and still are, [both for] followers and when I’m actually streaming full-time – everyone is just out to look for the next guy now. At least, streaming wise. It’s really annoying.”

Following this comment, Ninja left his stream to get a drink.

It’s not the first time that Ninja has spoken about his concerns over being the top Twitch streamer. Back in September, during an interview with ESPN The Magazine, Ninja revealed his anxiety about not being number one Twitch steamer. However, this usually comes about when he’s not playing Fortnite in front of his fans.

“When I’m not streaming, I have time to reflect on all the growth, and I don’t like that,” he said.

Meet the TikToker going viral for saying “Charli D’Amelio” 100,000 times

A TikToker has taken over the internet for saying the name of the platform’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio 100,000 times in a row — and he’s not the first one to lay claim to fame in this manner.

TikTok star Devin Caherly has caught the eye of social media users around the globe after taking on a jaw-dropping challenge, which he announced in a video on November 29.

Claiming that he would say the name of Charli D’Amelio — the site’s most popular creator with over 101 million followers — 100,00 times, his quest soon became a viral sensation, with his original announcement video garnering over 309,000 likes at the time of writing.

Caherly kept track of his project by using an online counter, which he would press each time he said D’Amelio’s name. However, he didn’t ask fans to just take his word for it; he even live-streamed the entire ordeal, but it didn’t turn out as planned.

Unfortunately for Caherly, as soon as he hit the 999,991 mark, his counter suddenly reset, leaving him completely devastated (although we have to admit, his failure made for a pretty funny TikTok).

@devincaherlyI spent 18 hours straight saying @charlidamelio and right before I hit 100,000 this happens 🤦🏻‍♂️♬ original sound – Devin Caherly

This isn’t his first experiment of this nature, either; Caherly has also said Charli D’Amelio’s name for every ten likes he’s gotten, as well as every ten comments within a 24-hour period.

Caherly’s endeavors ring similar to those of massively popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson, who has also said the names of social media stars like ‘PewDiePie’ and Logan Paul 100,000 times in the past.

That’s not the only way in which Caherly is similar to Mr Beast; he’s also given out quite a bit of cash and gift cards for his 2.7 million fans — although we can’t say it’s the same as Mr Beast opening a free bank or tipping waitresses in legitimate gold bars.

Either way, it seems that Caherly has opened up quite a career for himself, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for this young creative.
