Top 10 fastest growing Twitch streamers since Ninja's switch to Mixer

Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins’ controversial switch over to Microsoft’s streaming platform, Mixer, has caused a shift in Twitch’s most popular streamers.

On August 1, Ninja announced that he’d be retiring from Twitch (ending an eight-year-long partnership) to head over to Mixer, by means of a press conference that showed multiple versions of himself interviewing the popular streaming personality that we have all become accustomed to.

As a consequence of the 28-year-old’s departure to Mixer, there has been an exodus of his followers, leading to Twitch taking advantage of the most followed page on their site by using it as a landing pad to direct viewers to other streamers’ pages.

The Fortnite streaming sensation had gained in excess of 14 million followers, and as such, the effect of his switch-over has rippled throughout Amazon’s streaming service and altered the growth for streamers using the platform.

Ninja’s final stream on Twitch - summarizing the happenings of the Fortnite World Cup - was on July 29; so here are the most popular streamers (by followers gained) since his concluding broadcast.

After obtaining world champion status, Kyle 'Bugha' Giersdorf soared to first on the list by a considerable margin, with all of his social media platforms seeing exponential growth.

Notably, Corinna Kopf is the only female to make the list, while her partner Turner 'Tfue' Tenney's fanbase continue to show their loyalty amid the FaZe Clan drama, placing him second on the list. 

Streamers will be vying for the top spot, now left vacant by Ninja's departure, and if Bugha can be as good a streamer as he is a Fortnite player, he could be in with a shot.
