UPDATE (November 7, 2018, 7:45pm ET) 

Just over a day after setting out on his new goal of hitting 69696969 million subscribers on YouTube, PewDiePie has officially crossed over the milestone.

Who better to celebrate the occasion than MrBeast, the man who bought billboards all over his home city to campaign for PewDiePie. 

There’s no word yet on what PewDiePie’s next goal will be, but given his track record, we can expect it to be a great one. 

Now that Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has managed to be the first YouTuber to reach 69 million subscribers, he has his sights set on bigger and better things.

Over the last few weeks, PewDiePie has been locked in a heated battle for subscribers with Indian music label T-Series, with many predicting that he’d lose out on the top spot before long.

Against all odds, though, PewDiePie has held onto his spot, but he hasn’t stopped his campaign, instead shifting gears to a new magic number.

“I realized I made a huge mistake,” PewDiePie says at the beginning of his newest YouTube video. “Getting 69 million subscribers isn’t the most important number to hit.”

While initially, you might think that he’s referring to the next major milestone of 70 million, PewDiePie quickly pivots and reveals his next master plan.

“That’s right. I’m talking about 69696969 subscribers AND a collab with Tekashi69,” PewDiePie tells his viewers.

With his new goal in mind, PewDiePie then runs through some of the hilarious ways that his fans have fought to keep him on top.

Perhaps the most inventive of all was one fan who covered three kilometers worth of trees in Bangladesh with signs saying “Smash subscribe for PewDiePie.”

At this point, PewDiePie thanked the fan for “working from the inside,” as he thought that Bangladesh was in India rather than being its own country that happens to border India.

PewDiePie didn’t realize his mistake until after recording the video, throwing up a slide during the segment admitting that his “geography is non-existent.”

As long as PewDiePie’s fans continue putting his face on billboards, taking out ads in their local papers and even spamming “SUB TO PEWDIEPIE” in League of Legends Twitch chats, he’s got a good chance at reaching his goal very soon.

TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
