All his collaborations and deals prove that he is probably the biggest streamer in the world. He may have shot to fame during the Fortnite era, but he has managed to sustain his popularity over the years. He is still the most followed person on Twitch by a margin and is widely recognized as the face of the platform (sorry, Doc).
