Turner ‘Fortnite has skyrocketed many Twitch careers and you can certainly add Tfue to that list. While he did have a following before Fortnite, he definitely grew exponentially thanks to his top-tier play in the Epic Games battle royale.

Nearly two years later, that growth hasn’t stopped and he’s on the cusp of surpassing shroud as the second most followed Twitch channel. This is no small task as shroud is essentially one of the ‘legacy’ Twitch channels, and has been around since the early days of the platform.

Shroud TwitchShroud is one of Twitch’s biggest stars.

At the time of writing, Tfue is sitting at 6,450,288 followers while shroud has 6,578,357. Both streamers are incredibly popular and each gain followers every time they stream, but Tfue’s growth is currently faster than shroud’s. 

This is likely due to Tfue consistently being at the top of the Fortnite directory while shroud plays a variety of different things.

If Tfue does catch shroud, it will still be a very long time before he’s able to catch Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins, who is sitting at over 14 million followers, and still grows daily.

When could the leap happen?

If the trend continues, we could see Tfue surpass shroud as early as July, provided shroud doesn’t begin a meteoric rise at the same time. 

Tfue is the fastest growing channel in the past 30 days and part of the reason may be due to all the extra eyes on him as a result of the FaZe lawsuit.

That lawsuit, complete with all the drama, is still ongoing and we’ll keep you updated with the information as it unfolds.

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.
