When Twitch gamer
'Ninja' played in a Fortnite
event in Las Vegas in April, the livestream attracted a peak of 667,000 concurrent viewers - a new record. The record he broke, incidentally, was his own which he hit while streaming a Fortnite game session with megastar rapper Drake. With 10.8 million followers on Twitch and a huge 17.4 million subscribers on YouTube, Ninja, real name Richard Tyler Blevins, is a pretty big deal.
As our chart shows, as well as huge subscriber numbers, Ninja boasts incredible video view figures - having amassed over 1.23 billion on YouTube and 298.71 million on the longer format streaming site Twitch. His rapid rise to this level is also incredible, having been a comparable nobody less than one year ago.
