LUDWIG BECOMES MOST-SUBBED TWITCH STREAMER WITH INSANE 150-HOUR SUBATHON
HE WASTED NO TIME.
Having only just recovered from a burst appendix, on March 14 Ludwig decided to run a ‘Subathon’ stream.
THE VIEWERS HAD THE POWER.
This would allow viewers to control the amount of time he would have to spend streaming by subscribing to him.
Despite some backlash, the stream has attracted a lot of attention and Ludwig has had over 30,000 viewers watching him sleep.
On March 21 2021, Ludwig became the most-subscribed Twitch streamer, his sub count reached over 92,635.
Twitch does not publicly disclose subscription figures, and so these numbers are only estimates provided by Twitch Tracker.
A WHOLE LOT OF MONEY.
Stats from u/raddog86 estimate over $350,000 has been spent on subscriptions, with Ludwig set to receive almost $150,000 after tax.
Originally, subscriptions were supposed to add 10 seconds to the timer, but a glitch caused 15 seconds to be added instead.
The Guinness World Record for longest livestream is 259 hours, and it’s looking like Ludwig will be eclipsing that feat very soon.
