Top 20 most followed Twitch streamers - Updated June 26, 2019

Amazon-owned livestreaming platform Twitch has enjoyed exponential growth in recent years, driven by big games and beloved streamers, with the most popular attracting millions of fans. Here's the top 20 Twitch streamers with the biggest following.

The post-Fortnite era of Twitch has entirely changed the landscape of gaming entertainment, with more and more players also becoming avid viewers, watching their favorite channels stream their favorite game.

While some broadcasters are closely tied to a single game, like Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins and Fortnite for example, others have built up followings on what's known as 'variety' streaming, while others attract fans thanks to their skill, sometimes doubling as professional players.

Incredibly, if a streamer averages ten viewers, they are within roughly the top 1% of all streamers on Twitch, so when looking at streamers with millions of followers and thousands of average viewers, it really is the very smallest group of elite channels.

Ninja is comfortably number one in terms of followers, with over 14.5 million, as former CS:GO pro Michael 'shroud' Grzesiek boasts 6.5 million in second place.

Shroud could soon lose out on the number two spot though, as Fortnite pro Turner 'Tfue' Tenney has been gaining on him in 2019, and now sits only 100,000 behind. Equally, TSM Myth, who briefly took the number two spot, has been overtaken by Tfue, and now sits in fourth with 5.1 million.

Tfue is gaining fast on shroud, but still has a long way to go if he wants to overtake Ninja in followers.

Veteran streamers like Saqib 'LIRIK' Zahid and Jaryd 'summit1g' Lazar still find themselves within the top 20, showing that even after almost a decade of streaming, a loyal fanbase will stick around and grow.

Imane 'Pokimane' Anys is the only female streamer to make the top 20 with 3.1 million, and will likely remain so for some time, with the next most popular being Amouranth, who is a fair bit behind in 85th, with just over 1 million followers.
