Ninja is now the most-viewed streamer on Twitch, hitting 100,000 concurrent viewers within 20 minutes of going live. But despite rumors that Ninja would sign a deal with YouTube Gaming, Ninja never announced a partnership with the platform.

Near the start of the stream, Ninja explained that this stream "came about in two seconds".

"Ultimately, the success of Partners and streamers on Mixer is dependent on our ability to scale the platform for them as quickly and broadly as possible".


"OK, so I'm kind of in a thing, but not really". Even though he's been gone for more than a year on Twitch, he's still by far the most-followed user on the platform with 14.8 million. His account has virtually 15 million followers.

It's not recognized the place Ninja will find yourself, or if he'll signal one other contract. What he did not say, however, is where he will be resuming his streaming career on a full-time basis. (Update, 9:55am-The stream was a "last minute" selection, Ninja said while actively playing.) The duo is examining out Fortnite's 13.40 update, which added substantially-expected drivable cars and trucks.

Ever since Mixer shut down, Tyler "Ninja" Blevin's fans have been wondering what the Fortnite superstar was going to do next. There's the possibility that Ninja could end up on Facebook Gaming like many of his counterparts, but there haven't been any major announcements.


Ninja also noted that his split with Twitch was "contentious", though it seems that this relationship has been ironed out with him now making a reappearance on the platform. He did well on Mixer, racking up more than 67 million views since he joined the service in August 2019. Potentially, this means he will be streaming on both Twitch and YouTube again, as we've seen him do in the past.

Blevins did not sign an exclusivity contract with YouTube, and it's unclear if Blevins is interested in signing one with Twitch either.
