YOUTUBER KWEBBELKOP QUITTING 15M CHANNEL TO REPLACE HIMSELF WITH VTUBER

WHAT HAPPENED?

In a thread of tweets on December 18, kwebbelkop announced to his followers that he’d be quitting YouTube.

While the kwebbelkop channel won’t be gone entirely, the presence of the YouTuber himself will be removed in favor of a VTuber.

The decision to change his content hasn’t come lightly, as the path to creating his VTuber persona has led to numerous tests.

But what about the voice? Problem solved. We have Disney-grade AI software that can turn anyone’s voice into the desired voice.

Kwebbelkop noted how VTubers are “infinitely scalable” due to their artificial nature, which means they “can’t die” or “leave a company.”

It also means the creator can approach more diverse audiences, as “they can speak any language and be at multiple places at the same time.”
