Ninja, Tyler Blevins loses his partnership with Twitch

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has announced that he is on a break. While this might not seem like news in and of itself, Ninja’s Twitch account lost his partner status and Ninja changed his Twitter to be completely blank, removed his profile picture, and changed his name. the.

During a Fortnite stream, Ninja exploded after a player “split away” from him to avoid dying, a mechanic that grants players a sort of “get out of jail” card. After his opponent “breaks” him, Tyler sat in silence for about 30 seconds before leaving the game and launching into a “breaking” tirade. He ended the tirade by saying that he needs to take a break from streaming, and while the “break” mechanic alone isn’t likely to be the cause of the anger, it might have been the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.

Later, after the broadcast, Ninja deleted his profile picture from his Twitter, changed his name to “User Not Found” and posted that he needs a break. “I don’t know when I’ll be back or where,” Ninja said.

Ninja is the most popular streamer in the world, with almost 20 million followers on Twitch. In 2019, Ninja revoked his status as a Twitch streamer to stream exclusively on Microsoft’s “Mixer” platform. While not confirmed, it is rumored that Microsoft paid approximately $37 million AUD to get Ninja off Twitch. However, in 2020, Mixer went out of business and merged with Facebook Gaming, allowing Ninja to choose where to stream. He eventually returned to Twitch.

In addition to the strange and abrupt absence, Ninja’s Twitch account lost Partner status, a status that allows users to monetize their content with the platform. Many speculate that if Ninja returns, he will be facing the only available Twitch competitor: YouTube Gaming. Ninja, however, has not provided any clues or indications as to his status or platform of choice.
