'Fortnite' streaming star Ninja dumps Twitch for Mixer

Ninja Leaves Twitch For Mixer

He's switching his content from popular video game streaming website Twitch, owned by Amazon, to a similar Microsoft-owned platform called Mixer.

"Ninja is going to be streaming exclusively on Mixer!". He ranked 14th in SportsPro's list of the world's 50 Most Marketable Athletes for 2018.

The giant Ninja promotional machine, however, is already moving, as confirmed by the banner that stands at the top of the official Mixer page inviting all users of the portal to celebrate Ninja's entry into the family by subscribing to his channel for free For a limited period of time.

Ninja told his fans via Twitter: 'I have been holding on to this for quite some time. I'm freaking out in the best of ways, and I'm really just excited ...

Blevins is the biggest name in online gaming and arguably the most popular "Fortnite" player.

"Jack told me yesterday ⁠- he was like, "Mixer came to me with a lot of money, and then all of a sudden they say no", he continued. Like Ninja in 2017, Bugha is the undisputed best player in the world, where fans can tune in to watch his mechanical prowess and be amazed at his in-game procession while also getting to know the person behind the elite game-playing skills. The platform also allows broadcasters to share their controllers with viewers and livestreamers also get the ability to co-stream with up to three friends.

"Mixer is a place that was formed around being positive and welcoming from day one, and we look forward to the energy Ninja and his community will bring", Microsoft said.

Regardless, this is a huge deal for Microsoft and could swing the pendulum of game streaming a little more towards Mixer.

For Ninja, the move to Mixer is one that might not be all about the money or record-breaking numbers. He's been criticized for not inviting more female players into his streams, and that intensified when he told Polygon past year that his concern was "if there's a hint of flirting, that is going to be taken and going to be put on every single video and be clickbait forever".
