So today the biggest video game streamer, Tyler Ninja Belvins announced that he was leaving Twitch for Microsoft’s Mixer.
As we all know, Twitch is and has always been the biggest video game streaming platform on the internet with a 72% all hours watched.
Mixer on the hand is a video game streaming platform that won the NY Disrupt Battlefield competition in 2016 and was acquired by Microsoft, then it was called Beam.
Twitch responded to Tyler Ninja’s statement by saying that
” We’ve Loved watching Ninja on Twitch over the years and are proud of all that he’s accomplished for himself and his family and the gaming community. We wish him the best in his future endeavours.”
Sounds nice ha, well immediately after Twitch released the statement they revoked Tyler Ninja’s partnered check mark, just like the blue tick that shows a verified account on Facebook or Twitter. (I smell jealousy...)
Tyler Ninja didn’t give much detailed reason on why he was leaving the Twitch platform for Mixer but I’m guessing it for cash, maybe Microsoft’s Mixer has splashed him a very huge sum to ditch the Twitch platform for Mixer.
Tyler Ninja’s move is sure gonna deal a huge blow to Twitch and in turn be of huge advantage to Mixer.
