Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney may have surpassed both Summit1g and Ninja’s total number of Twitch subscribers, according to statistics he has posted online.
The FaZe Clan member has seemingly put rumors about his ‘fake’ subscriber count to bed after he revealed that he had a total of 53,523 subscribers on the online streaming platform, at the time of writing.
He tweeted: “For the people saying my sub count is fake” on January 16, along with a crying emoji to announce his accomplishment.

Tfue has earned more prize money than any other Twitch streamer after a successful 2018 playing competitive Fortnite, with first place finishes at the Korea Open 2018 Duo Finals alongside KittyPlays and the Fall Skirmish – Week 6 at Twitchcon, just to name a few.
He was recently accused of hacking by Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, after wiping out not only him but his entire team in a hilarious moment.
This news comes just a day after Ninja was reportedly leapfrogged at the top of Twitch, according to Twitch Stats, with former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive streamer Summit1g seemingly overtaking the popular internet personality after reaching the elusive 40,000 mark on January 15.
Summit has been breaking the mold for quite some time now, by streaming Microsoft Studios’ Sea of Thieves game as opposed to Fortnite – proving that not only Fortnite streamers dominate the streaming platform right now.
Ninja has been quite public about his feelings towards people looking for the next big thing on Twitch of late, seemingly upset by the current situation – having boasted over 200,000 subs in the past.
Responding to a message in his chat on stream, he said: “The only thing that is frustrating is that when you were the number one streamer – and still are, [both for] followers and when I’m actually streaming full-time – everyone is just out to look for the next guy now. At least, streaming wise. It’s really annoying.”
Twitch Stats still shows Tfue as having 36,944 subscribers at the time of writing, but his own statistics seem to be very different from that figure. For those that aren’t aware, Twitch subscriber counts are not publicly available information. It is, therefore, the choice of the streamer to reveal those figures or not.
For what it’s worth, it looks as though summit has confirmed that Tfue’s number is indeed higher than his with a Tweet in reply to YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem’s question about who had the most.
That’s a scary high sub number. :goat:
