Early this March, Ludwig Ahgren began streaming on his Twitch channel, promising viewers that for every subscriber he received, he would extend the stream by ten seconds. Now, 31 days later, subscribers continue to roll in, perpetuating Ahgren’s record-breaking subscriber status.

Ahgren surpassed Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, who, according to Twitch Tracker peaked at 269,154 subscribers three years ago. As of now, Ahgren has racked up over 279,000 subscribers with numbers continuing to grow towards the final minutes of the 31-day long livestream. For each subscription received on his final day, Ahgren has promised to make a donation to the Humane Society of the United States or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The Los Angeles-based streamer did what Twitch followers called a “subathon”. While online, the streaming marathon saw Ahgren do daily activities like cook, eat, chat, sleep and of course, playing video games. Originally, Ahgren thought he might be able to stream for just 24 hours nonstop or even just 48 hours. However, as his subscriptions grew, it provided a greater incentive for him to stay online.

Upon hearing about the feat, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins took to Twitter to congratulate Ahgren, “Records are meant to be broken, I would be lying if I said wasn’t a little sad but congrats
@LudwigAhgren on holding the new sub record on twitch.”

The Twitch livestream closed at April 14, 12 a.m. PT.
