YouTuber Scarce made his first comments following his fight on the KSI vs Logan Paul undercard.

He opened up on a number of issues, including his past struggles with weight and the injuries he is dealing with after the fight.

Scarce was teased and criticized for sucking in his stomach during the weigh in for his fight, a habit he says was developed over years of dealing with weight issues.

They call me up on stage to do the weigh-in. Man, even PewDiePie reacted to this and he was telling me, ‘Scarce, you need to stop sucking in your stomach. What is wrong with you?’

I don’t know how many of you guys know this about me but I was almost 300 pounds. Literally less than a year ago dude. I was so heavy, people used to make fun of me for it all the time… I’ve been really self-conscious . I was the kid in high school, even grade school, that would leave my shirt on in the pool.

I took my shirt off and instantly I’m like, I got to suck in my stomach, because that’s what I do all the time…. I was sucking in my stomach because I was totally self-conscious about everything.

Scarce shared his drastic weight loss transformation on Twitter before the fight.

He also discussed the personal issues that inspired him during the fight, including losing his father just weeks before.

I took a lot of punches, it hurt really badly, but I kept fighting… The reason why I did that was because this wasn’t about me. This fight was so much bigger than me just going out there for some YouTuber event. If you don’t know, six weeks ago my Dad passed away.

I don’t know if there’s an afterlife… if he’s looking down on me like people say, I would hope that he was watching me in that ring and I did not want to go down with my Dad watching me.

Scarce did not go down, but he did not leave the ring unscathed.

He suffered a broken nose, along with typical boxing aches and pains in his neck and jaw.

Scarce’s complete comments are contained in the video below.

With 330 monthly active users and 145 million users daily, Twitter is one of the most popular social media apps out there. Whether you’re a casual user, business or even the US President, nobody can resist the allure of sharing snapshots of our thoughts within 260 characters.

There are many ways to show your personality through your Twitter account. Whether it be through a funny bio, pinned Tweet, interesting profile/cover photo or unique Twitter name, there are plenty of ways that you can make your Twitter account feel more like you.

However, one limitation that a lot of Twitter users note is the lack of fonts available. A lot of users find themselves stuck with Helvetica Neue, or even Arial if they’re really lucky.

The easiest way to get custom fonts on Twitter is through third party websites.

While there is no quick fix within the app to use special fonts on Twitter, it is possible to use special fonts through the use of third-party websites or apps.

What websites are best for using special fonts on Twitter?

As with any third-party website, you should always be careful that the website you’re visiting is safe and isn’t full of malware and other potential risks to your device. Be wary of websites with a lot of pop-ups and redirects.

No third-party website is completely risk-free, but here are some of the most popular ones used by Twitter users to get access to special fonts:

  • LingoJam
  • FontsforTwitter
  • Fontvilla

How to use special fonts on Twitter

While individual third-party font websites vary slightly from one another, they all essentially work the same.

However, for this tutorial, we will specifically focus on LingoJam.

A lot of these third party websites, like LingoJam, can be used on smartphones as well as desktops.
  1. Type the text you want to snazz up into LingoJam’s Fancy Text Generator, specifically in the box on the left-hand side that says ‘normal text goes here’.
  2. On the right hand side of the screen, you should see a box that displays your Tweet in a variety of different fonts. Scroll through this box to find the font you like the best.
  3. Highlight your Tweet in it’s chosen font, and then either click Ctrl/Command + C or simply right-click the text and select ‘copy’.
  4. Open Twitter and log into your account.
  5. Paste the text wherever you want to put it: this can be in your Bio – which you can access by clicking on the ‘Profile’ icon on the left-hand side, clicking the ‘Edit Profile’ button, and then pasting the text into the box that says ‘Bio’ before pressing the ‘Save’ button – or as a Tweet, wherein you can simply paste the text into the ‘What’s happening?’ box on Twitter before pressing the ‘Tweet’ button.

So, there you have it. Now you can give your Tweets that extra edge and be the envy of all your friends!
