After surprising millions around the world by announcing his departure from Twitch, it appears that Tyler “Ninja” Blevins was able to prove his popularity in just one day, without even appearing on the screen for one second
Since yesterday’s news that Ninja has joined Microsoft’s Mixer platform, there has been an unprecedented increase in visitor numbers, and what’s interesting is that Ninja has not even broadcast yet.

Of course, the current offer which allows a free subscription to new users inevitably contributed in increasing that figure for a limited time to celebrate the advent of Ninja on the platform. Nevertheless, Blevins’s achievement of such a number within a few hours is the biggest evidence of his continuing popularity, especially since he did so without starting his first broadcast yet.
In addition to increasing traffic and subscriber rate, Mixer also ranked first in smartphone applications on App stores, coming from behind to surpass Youtube, Gmail, Instagram and more. This inevitably makes “Ninja” deal a success by any measure, a sign of the tremendous impact of content creators on the digital world.
