Fortnite streaming megalodon, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, has announced that he has moved on from Twitch and will be streaming on a different platform from now on. The streamer, known primarily for his Fortnite livestreams on the Amazon-owned streaming service Twitch, announced this Thursday.
The streamer has been a huge inspiration and one of the most notable in the eSports realm with him even being on the cover of ESPN at one point. The transition was made, but he has no ill-will to Twitch.
I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunities Twitch has provided me.
But, as time went on Tyler Blevins, going under the online alias of Ninja wanted to go forward in his career, but felt Twitch wasn’t cutting it, so he sought out other platforms to do just that. That’s when he found Microsoft’s Mixer (formerly known as Beam), a relatively new kid on the block, having been around only since 2016.
But as I looked at the next step in my career, I wanted to be somewhere that empowered me to push the boundaries of gaming and achieve bigger goals within the industry. Mixer provides me with more ways to connect with my community.
The streamer is going to kickstart his Mixer career this Friday at Lollapalooza. He’s said he is welcoming to anyone who follows his footsteps, but also noted that you don’t have to be on the same platform.
