Calum Patterson

As streamers aspire to Twitch fame, the platform’s biggest names have already amassed millions of followers. These are the top 20 Twitch streamers with the most followers as of June 2024.

The world of streaming is experiencing explosive growth, especially with heightened competition from YouTube and Kick, yet Twitch still holds its position as the premier destination for live-streamed content.

At the very top of the pile are those streamers with millions of followers, who regularly attract tens of thousands of viewers as soon as they go live. Some of these streamers have been around for over a decade, while others are much newer.

These are the most-followed streamers on Twitch.

Ninja still number 1 for Twitch followers

Ninja is still number one on the list of the most followed Twitch streamers, with over 19 million followers on his channel. He ended his exclusive partnership with Twitch when he moved to Mixer, but came back after the platform dissolved. However, due to Twitch’s recent policy changes, preventing co-streaming, he is considering moving away from the platform.

Auronplay and Rubius are fast approaching Ninja’s follower count though, and were on track to overtake him. But, their follower growth has slowed.

Kai Cenat is also growing rapidly, and holds the record for most subs at one time, and he has now cracked the top 20, with over 9 million followers.

Meanwhile, Tfue, xQc, and shroud are the next NA-based streamers in the list, all with over 10 million followers. Tfue retired from streaming and then moved to Kick, so his spot will be up for grabs.

Tfue and Ninja, two of the top twitch streamers.Tfue has overtaken shroud, but has a long way to go if he wants to overtake Ninja in followers.

The rise of Spanish streamers

In particular, Spanish-speaking streamers are dominating Twitch, now taking up two of the top three spots. This is thanks to the growth of streaming not only in Spain, but also in South America. Ibai, Rubius, and Grefg all make the top 10.

In 2022, there was an argument that Auronplay was actually the most popular streamer on all of Twitch at some stages, with his average viewership often beating every other streamer. In total, eight of the top 20 streamers on Twitch speak either Spanish or Portuguese.

Streamers moving to YouTube & Kick

A number of the top 20 Twitch streamers by follower count have actually moved to YouTube, such as Myth and TimTheTatman. However, we’re keeping them on this list as their channels are still available on the platform.

Some streamers, like Dr Disrespect and Adin Ross, are no longer counted in the list as their accounts are permanently banned. Adin’s channel had 7.25 million followers when he was banned, which would place him 18th on the list. He now streams exclusively on Kick.

Tfue currently sits at 7th on the most followed Twitch streamer list. Although he’s largely moved on from the game now, Tfue was the only Fortnite streamer who could rival Ninja during the game’s prime in 2018, and later usurped him in viewership in 2019. Ninja’s move to mixer made way for him to top the charts, but he now rests at seventh overall.

Tfue retired from streaming in 2023, however, made a return in November 2023 with a signing to Kick. Just like xQc, he splits his time between Kick and Twitch, however streams more on the former.

He was the most-watched streamer in 2021 and 2022, however, lost the streak of Kai Cenat in 2023.

xQc’s signing with Kick most likely had something to do with it, as he now splits his streaming time between Twitch and Kick.

Ninja is by far the most-followed streamer on Twitch.
  • Real name: Tyler Blevins
  • Nationality: American
  • Age: 32
  • Known for: Fortnite

Like Tfue, Ninja may not be dedicated to Fortnite anymore, but it’s certainly the game that helped him reach never-seen-before levels of popularity on Twitch. A former Halo pro, he now plays a variety of big titles and reclaimed his crown as the most-followed Twitch streamer.

However, with the Fortnite boom well and truly over, Ninja’s stats for viewership did drop. On September 1, he announced that he was taking a break from the internet for an indefinite period of time. He’s back streaming regularly now, but does so to fewer viewers, meaning his follower count has stagnated somewhat. His top spot may not be safe.

So, there you have it, the 20 top Twitch streamers on the platform right now. These rankings will be updated monthly as streamers gain more followers and move up (or down) the chart.
