World-renowned Fortnite player and game streamer Ninja (also known as Tyler Blevins) has just reached 10 million followers on the popular streaming platform Twitch. He is the first person on the service to do so and Blevins was quick to announce the feat on his Twitter account. He goes on to say, “First streamer on twitch to ever hit 10 million followers! This milestone is seriously ridiculous and the one I am most proud of. I have been streaming for a very very long time… and I cannot express how grateful I am to be in the position I am in. Love you guys”

Already a popular gaming personality, Ninja found even more pop-culture notoriety by playing ‘Fortnite’ alongside the likes of Drake and other big-name celebrities and artists. He also currently has 16,000,000 + subscribers on YouTube and even hosts his own Fortnite tournaments. It’s even been reported that Ninja makes half-a-million dollars a month just for playing the super popular Battle Royale title.

In other gaming news, Fortnite will actually not use Google Play to offer the game to Android users.
