Top Twitch Influencer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins announced on Thursday that he has partnered with Microsoft’s live streaming service Mixer, and will now exclusively stream using the service, ending his reign as one of Twitch’s most-watched personalities.
Blevins was the most-watched Twitch streamer in 2018 following the rise of Epic Games’ battle royale game Fortnite and his mainstream popularity has gotten him onto shows like “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
Since Jan. 1, 2018, Blevins has recorded 278.1M hours watched on Twitch, over 100M hours watched more than the second most-watched channel during the same time period, Riot Games (165.8M). Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek (144.5M) and Turner “Tfue” Tenney (105.5M) are the only other influencers to have even eclipsed the 100M hours watched mark during the time frame.

“Whether it’s participating in events where I can connect with other people who love games or creating the best interactive streaming platform, Mixer inspires me to push the boundaries of gaming and opens up opportunities for me to interact with my community in more ways than ever before,” Blevins said in a statement. “I’m excited to continue doing what I’ve been doing – playing games and sharing my experiences with the world – and so much more.”
Ninja will debut his Mixer stream this Friday-Sunday when he streams live from Lollapalooza 2019 at “Ninja’s Dojo” inside the Red Bull Outpost.
