Despite having been briefly overtaken on a number of occasions, Swedish YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg has managed to breach the 90 million subscribers mark first, ahead of the chasing T-Series.

Since late 2018, PewDiePie, his fans and fellow YouTubers, have been on a seemingly never-ending mission to fend off Indian record label and production company T-Series, who have been gaining on the Swede’s previously unchallenged top subscriber spot.

PewDiePie held on, beating T-Series to 70 million, 80 million and now, on March 18, the big 90 million subscribers.

MrBeast, YouTubeYouTuber MrBeast played a big part in helping PewDiePie stay on top.

He hasn’t done it alone though, as support from YouTubers like MrBeast, Jacksepticeye and KEEMSTAR, as well as numerous celebrities (including Elon Musk, who even appeared on one of PewDiePie’s videos) have all been crucial in keeping him on top.

But, as the months have gone on, the threat from T-Series has not subsided, and in mid-march, they briefly stole the top spot on three separate occasions.

As of March 19, at 7AM EST, PewDiePie’s lead was just over 1,000 subscribers, and it seems inevitable that one of these days, he will eventually be beaten for good.

The next target will be 100 million, but in order to reach that ridiculous number first, PewDiePie will have to come up with some innovative ideas to boost his numbers.

Social statistics tracking website SocialBlade estimates that PewDiePie will hit 100 million subs on June 4, 2019, while T-Series is estimated to reach that same number on May 17, 2019.

It’s been a turbulent week for PewDiePie, not least as the phrase ‘subscribe to PewDiePie’ was uttered by the Christchurch mosque shooter, which prompted the YouTuber to respond, explaining that it “sickened” him.

T-Series meanwhile has been rallying Indian internet users to get behind their channel as a source of some kind of national pride, which shows just how significant it would be to finally overtake PewDiePie.


How to get your 2020 Twitch Recap: A simple guide

Twitch has been rolling out 2020 recaps for both viewers and streamers, letting you see who you watched the most, and if you streamed, how many total viewers you racked up. So, here’s how you can get ahold of yours. 

Over the last few years, services like Spotify and Apple Music have started to give users a recap of their year – showing off who they listened to, how many hours they spent on the app, and also adding a few recommendations for the following year.

Users of other platforms have called for similar things, so they can see just how much time they’ve spent watching videos, listening to music, and even playing games.

Twitch is one of those platforms that has followed suit, giving both viewers and streamers a recap of their 2020 on the platform – including who they watched the most, how many messages they sent in chats, and what their favorite emote to spam was.

To get your hands on your own, account-specific recap – whether you streamed or just watched along with Twitch chat – you don’t have to jump through many hurdles.

Just make sure that the email address you use on your Twitch account is active and can receive emails. If that’s all sorted, then, you’ll get an email from Twitch delivering your stats. 

If you think you’ve already got an email and might have missed it, then simply go into your email inbox and search either your Twitch username or 2020 Twitch recap. It should be there. Also, make sure to check your spam inbox, it might have gotten lost along the way and ended up in there.

That’s all there is to it, really. You don’t have to go to any new website and opt into anything special, just make sure that the email account linked to your Twitch is able to receive emails.

Of course, as nice as it is to see which streamers you’ve wasted far too much time watching, some content creators aren’t happy. Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel pointed out that the stats are skewed, and his case ruined altogether, for some streamers because of bots.
