Ludwig has dethroned Ninja as the ‘King of Twitch‘ as he surpassed Ninja’s subscriber record. Not only has he crossed the previous record, but has gone far ahead to set a new record. As of now, the new King of Twitch has over 282K subscribers, a record set in stone for a while.

Starting from a mere 1700 subs, Ahgren has done something the internet never thought was possible. Gaining over a hundred times his original sub-count, all the hours spent tucked away in his bed have finally helped the streamer create history.

Recap of the legendary subathon by Ludwig

Summing up the 31 long days in a few lines is not an easy task. However, in an attempt to recap all the things that took place during the live stream that broke multiple records, there are a few things that come to mind. A few hours before the stream ended, the streamer hilariously pointed out all the major events that took place while his subathon was going on.

During his marathon of a live stream, Ludwig shared multiple anecdotes from his days growing up as well as his life as a streamer. He also reacted to various events that took all over the internet, including when Sykkuno met Corpse Husband. 20 days into his live stream, Ahgren also faced the threat of an attack from MrBeast in a hilarious attempt to extend his live stream.

Ludwig also went over the time when Twitch, the very platform he now rules, rejected his job application. Moreover, he explained the breakdown of all the earnings he received from the subathon. While most of it will go to Twitch, he also pledged a major part to charity.

Finally, he owes the success of his subathon mostly to his moderators, who worked hard to keep his stream running. Therefore, Ludwig made sure he will reward all his moderators for their efforts.

Twitter reacts to the new ‘King of Twitch’

Naturally, with such a massive development on the internet, both fans and celebrities came forward to congratulate the streamer. Twitter is full of celebratory messages towards Ludwig for breaking Ninja’s record.
