Popular Fortnite streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins busts previous record.
Canadian rapper Drake has joined forces with popular Fortnite streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, linking up for a game and smashing the record for moss concurrent viewers on Twitch in the process.
At the time of writing Blevins’ viewer count is hovering at just over 600,000. The previous record of over 380,000 viewers was set back in early January, 2018.
Blevins’ stream reportedly exploded after Drake tweeted about his Fortnite session to his 36.9 million followers.
Twitch has unsurprisingly embraced the event with a follow-up tweet, apparently in response to some initial communications hurdles between the pair.
Fortnite fans can check out the stream while it lasts here.
