FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney became the second member of the team to reach 10 million YouTube subscriptions.

Fortnite can be credited with launching many streamers’ careers as Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins have both Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani and FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney have exploded in popularity thanks to the game.

While Ninja and Myth grew very quickly in the beginning, their Twitch numbers have begun to wane as Tfue is now pretty much consistently the most viewed Fortnite channel when he is live.

As with most popular streamers, their Twitch success also transfers over to YouTube and Tfue has seen very rapid growth there along with Twitch.

Tfue has become the second member of FaZe Clan, joining Rug, to reach 10,000,000 YouTube subscribers, which is no small milestone to reach. His channel was first created back in 2014 with his inaugural video being a video of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.

The other videos include games like Destiny, PUBG and H1Z1 before moving onto Fortnite full-time where the FaZe Clan member exploded in viewership and popularity.

He only has 479 videos in total on the channel but has amassed the 10 million subscriptions and over 744 million views, which is a very impressive feat.

The number grows each day so this is just the beginning for Tfue as he continues to make a bigger name for himself.

Many Fortnite, Twitch and YouTube personalities complemented Tfue on his impressive milestone on Twitter.

“I’ve never seen anything quite like Tfue’s come up,” FaZe Banks tweeted. “You’ve done so much in such a short amount of time, it’s fucking wild. Super proud of you. Congrats on 10 milli dog, here’s to another 10.”

FaZe members Censor, Teeqo, Pamaj, Replays and Nikan all congratulated Tfue on the milestone in replies to his initial tweet, but there was also excitement outside the members of FaZe.

Other notable names to share their congratulations were KEEMSTAR, CouRage, TimTheTatman and NoahJ456.

This is just the beginning for Tfue as he still has a very bright future in the Fortnite esports scene and Twitch in general.

Former Vine star Patrick Perkins has cleared up a myth about an iconic meme years after it first took the internet by storm.

While Vine shuffled its mortal coil in 2016, many of its biggest stars have carried on with short-form comedy on YouTube and now TikTok, including Lele Pons, Liza Koshy, and David Dobrik.

Even now, these short clip compilations still get millions of views on YouTube, and there are still multiple Instagram and Twitter accounts dedicated to them. Several vines have carried on their internet life as memes or gifs and have even been pasted onto merchandise.

The vine in question shows a blonde teenager in glasses blowing a smoke circle using a vape on a desk when the person carrying the camera blows it away. The teen turns to the camera and exasperatedly says “Adam!.”

Adam and Patrick starred in several iconic vines.

Now the star himself has come onto TikTok to confirm some lore surrounding him and his twin brother, which has baffled thousands who never knew the truth.

Another iconic and highly quotable vine involving one of the twins shows them walking into his bathroom in just a pair of boxers saying: “Hi, welcome to chillis.” In another, one of the twins begs viewers to stop comparing him to Chicken Little.

To most people, they look like the exact same person.

However, Patrick has explained in a viral TikTok that they’re actually identical twins. Patrick was the star of the vape video, while the other twin is Adam and the star of the Chilli’s vine. He also showed a picture of them together “since a lot of people don’t believe that there are actually two of us.”

Patrick also posted the video to Twitter and users were bowled over by the new information. One person wrote, “I feel like a different person for knowing this,” while another added, “world-shattering revelations are sometimes just small clarifications I guess.”

In less than 24 hours, Patrick’s tweet has amassed 4,000 likes and continues to grow, bringing back a sense of nostalgia for many and clearing up a long-standing internet myth.
