After many years on Twitch, one of the most famous video game streaming platforms, Tyler Blevins, better known as Ninja, has announced the move to Microsoft’s Mixer.
The influencer is probably one of the most famous Fortnite players in the world, has more than 14 million followers in Twitch and visits to his videos are around 500 million. These high numbers have made their change of platform has surprised everyone.
Ninja personally announced his new exclusive contract with a video on YouTube and Twitter in which he stated that nothing changed:

Therefore, his Twitch fans will have to switch to Mixer if they want to keep watching it, as their Twitch channel is presumably abandoned and has already lost the verification that made it an official channel. Although it is far from the 14 million it had, it seems that Ninja is on the right track, as it already has almost 250,000 followers without having retransmitted anything.
