Ludwig beats Ninja’s record and becomes the streamer with the most Twitch subscribers. He carried out a 31-day uninterrupted live broadcast that allowed him to surpass the 282,000 followers barrier.
The rise of Fortnite brought with it a simultaneous rise: that of Ninja. Tyler Blevins, better known by the pseudonym with which he became popular on the Internet, quickly became one of the most easily recognizable figures in the entertainment industry and one of the most visible faces on Twitch. However, the Mixer contract that the streamer accepted took him away from the platform, and, today, in addition to his community is smaller in magnitude, his highest subscriber mark has finally been surpassed after three years.
To be more precise, Ludwig, a streamer popularized by, among other hobbies, his work as a commentator in various eSports tournaments, has surpassed 282,000 subscribers on the streaming platform, becoming the content creator with the most followers in the history of the service. In this sense, Ludwig started a live stream on March 14 with the premise that, with each new subscription, the duration of the stream would be extended by 10 seconds, resulting in a stream that not only lasted 31 days but, directly, could have lasted much, much longer.
Records are meant to be broken, I would be lying if I said wasn’t a little sad but congrats @LudwigAhgren on holding the new sub record on twitch ?

For his part, Ninja shared a message on his Twitter account, congratulating Ludwig on the achievement. He also pledged to donate $5 for each subscriber to St. Jude Hospital or the Animal Humane Society on the last day of his extensive live stream, allowing him to significantly increase the number of followers and, at the same time, allowing him to contribute to a good cause through such a remarkable milestone.
