Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has a suggestion for Twitter that would make it easier to follow someone based on a single tweet.

The popular Fortnite streamer has almost 3 million followers of his own on Twitter, but finds following others a little too difficult right now.

His suggestion is to make better use of the drop down arrow in the top corner of a tweet, which features options like ‘Share Via” and bookmarks, but has no option to follow the author of that tweet.

Others were quick to point out that a follow button is displayed on desktop, but Ninja was referring to mobile specifically.

In order to follow someone on a mobile version of Twitter, you need to click through to their profile from the tweet, where you can find the follow button.

Ninja’s idea would remove the profile step, bringing it more in line with the desktop browser version of Twitter.

Ninja has over 256 million views on Twitch and has the most subscribers on the platform at over 100,000.

He was recently invited to the ESPY’s, an awards show that honors the world of sports, where he played Fortnite with NFL player David Bakhtiari.

Do you agree with Ninja’s proposed changes to the way a follow happens on Twitter, or do you prefer having to look at a profile first anyway?

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 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.
