In his tweet, the pro-Fortnite streamer said that he is going to stream not just on his home platform Twitch, but also on YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Everyone was surprised by this because no platform allows users to stream on so many platforms, thus it is really quite an accomplishment.

Streamers and fans in shock after Ninja’s massive return announcement

After Ninja posted his tweet saying that he has been taking some time off but now he is back to stream “Everywhere”, a flood of comments came rushing through from fans and streamers alike. SypherPK, who Ninja had his last stream with, said that Ninja might get “stream sniped” on every platform. For those who are unaware, Stream snipe is a term used by streamers for when other players interfere with the streamer’s gameplay while following them through their live stream.

Notably, many streamers, including DrLupo, CourageJD, Timthetatman, and many more commented and congratulated the Fortnite streamer. Although, one thing that backfired for Ninja was when fans pointed out that he faked his mental breakdown to make such announcements.

Many fans thought it was unnecessary and looking at the sensitivity of the issue wasn’t appreciated much. Yet, most of the fans were just simply happy for their beloved streamer to return with a happy and goodwill to stream again.

Future of Ninja in the streaming industry

According to reports from September 2020, Ninja had a multi-year contract with Twitch since he moved to the platform after leaving Mixer. And since the contract was not disclosed, it was shocking for fans to know that Twitch actually allowed such a stunt to happen.

Also, according to Ninja’s Pillar profile, he has kept YouTube as a priority where Ninja Gaming and Ninja Shorts links are at the top followed by Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and then Twitch.

It is also to be noted that, not just Ninja, a similar pattern of popular Twitch streamers migrating to YouTube was observed lately. Streamers like FaZe Swagg, Fuslie, LilyPichu, Sykkuno, and many more from the last few years, have moved to YouTube. Thus it is interesting to see if Ninja might also reveal a contract of some sort, or if he is planning on something else.
