Ninja Tyler Blevins | 2018 Year In Review | Fortnite Domination, Drake, YouTube Rewind, EPSY's, more
At the end of 2017, Richard Tyler Blevins, better known as Ninja, began to gain fame on the Internet for his Fortnite Battle Royale streams. Thanks to his videogame popularity and his streaming, it was estimated that 2018 would be a very successful year for him, but no one could have ever guessed the rollercoaster ride that the gamer would go in this year. There were extreme highs and a couple of bumps in the road. At the time of recording this video, Ninja has exceeded 12.4 million followers on Twitch and had uploaded close to 750 videos. He also exceeded 370,000 million views and he had an average of almost 80 thousand viewers per transmission. By May, he had exceeded ten million subscribers on his YouTube channel, which earned him a diamond play button from the company. In fact, it was the head of gaming on YouTube, Ryan Wyatt, who gave it to him during E3 2018. He tweeted about this amazing feat saying how he had gone from one million to ten million subscribers in less than a hundred days; this made him one of the few content creators with that many followers who wasn’t a musician. At the time of this recording, Ninja has already exceeded 20 million followers. And with more than 790 videos he has exceeded 1,550 million views and I think that means that he has 1 billion views.
