What is the peak viewership record on Twitch? Has a stream already exceeded one million viewers simultaneously? Where is Ninja and his records on Fortnite? Here’s the answer to all these questions.

Twitch is an online live video streaming platform owned by Amazon. Its roots go back to 2006 when the site ‘Justin.tv’ was created. In 2011, they launched a video game category, under the name Twitch. Finally, Justin.tv is shut down in 2014, shifting all of its activity to Twitch.

The success was almost immediate for Twitch, which is quickly became the leader in video game streaming, attracting interest from huge companies like Google and Amazon. Ultimately the latter bought the site in August 2014 for $970 million, bringing Twitch into a new dimension.

Today, Twitch draws tens of millions of users every day on dozens of different games and broadcasts live the biggest esports events around the world.

The platform has thus become a symbol of the growth of gaming and esports in general and streaming in particular can bring together hundreds of thousands of people simultaneously, overshadowing some of the most popular television shows.

Unfortunately, Twitch very rarely communicates about statistics and so it is necessary to go through third parties to have a get a real idea of ​​the audiences of certain streamers or events.

Gamoloco, recently published the ranking of the 15 biggest viewership peaks of ever seen on Twitch. Of these, 13 (or 14 depending on your point of view) were esports events and 2 (or 1) individual streams.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
