After his sudden livestream shutdown on September 1, fans were a little concerned that Ninja would leave his platform.

According to his recent tweet, the 31-year-old Fortnite streamer is announcing that he will be streaming “Everywhere!”

In his tweet, the pro-Fortnite streamer said he will be streaming not only on his home platform Twitch, but also on YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Everyone was surprised by this because no single platform allows users to stream on so many platforms, so it’s really quite an achievement.

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

After Ninja posted his tweet saying he’s taken some time off, but now he’s back to stream “Everywhere”, there was a flood of comments from fans and streamers alike. SypherPK, with whom Ninja had his last stream, said Ninja could get “stream cut” on every platform. For those who don’t know, 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 was faking his nervous breakdown to make such announcements.

Many fans thought it was unnecessary and looking at the sensitivity of the issue was not much appreciated. Still, most fans were just happy to see their beloved streamer return with a happy and good will to stream again.

Future of Ninja in the streaming industry

According to September 2020 reports, Ninja was on a multi-year contract with Twitch since moving to the platform after leaving Mixer. And since the contract was not disclosed, it was shocking for fans to know that Twitch allowed such a stunt to take place.

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

It should also be noted that, not just Ninja, a similar pattern of popular Twitch streamers migrating to YouTube has been observed lately. Streamers like FaZe Swagg, Fuslie, LilyPichu, Sykkuno and many more from recent years have moved to YouTube. So it’ll be interesting to see if Ninja would reveal some kind of contract as well, or if he’s up to something else.
