Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has managed to hit 1 million subscribers after leaving Twitch and moving to Mixer, a streaming platform owned by Microsoft.
Ninja tweeted about it thanking his supporters for the amazing achievement, it’s also important to note that it’s currently free for everyone that has a Mixer account to subscribe to Ninja for this month.
Even though the subscriber count is astounding, that might not stay the same two months from now, the true Ninja numbers will start to show after the free month subscription passes, revealing whether or not the change of streaming platform has affected Ninja’s popularity greatly.
Dr.Disrespect talked lengthily on his stream about the whole Ninja move to Mixer, sharing his own opinion on the matter.
Dr.Disrespect believes that there’s no telling if Ninja’s choice is right or wrong for the time being, the true numbers will show after two months, but at the same time he added that the pay is definitely worth it for Ninja, and if another big streamer does the move from Twitch to Mixer it’ll encourage new streamers to stream on Mixer and even Twitch streamers might move as well.
Dr.Disrespect added that Twitch’s current issues are also a big reason that streamers might want to choose Mixer over Twitch.
“You see everything that’s going on with Twitch and sort of the feedback they’ve been getting as of late due to certain events that happened and people being really upset with favoritism, Twitch is a little under scrutiny right now,” Dr.Disrespect said on stream.
None the less Ninja at the time being is successful as the face of Mixer, his follower’s count has also increased tremendously in the past couple of days hitting 800k+ followers.
Twitch seems to be pushing Bugha the winner of the Fortnite World Cup, to seemingly represent Twitch after Ninja’s move to Mixer, which also infuriated Dr.Disrespect, for pushing a new streamer to be the “Face of Twitch” rather than pushing veteran popular streamers that can rival Ninja and offer actual entertaining content.
