In August 2019, leading Fortnite streamer Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins announced that he was leaving Twitch after 8 years in order to broadcast exclusively on Mixer.
Blevins' entire Twitch audience, comprised of a record-breaking 14.6 million followers, were all encouraged to move over to Microsoft's streaming platform, which launched in 2016.
Blevins' surprising departure sparked a turbulent new trend within the streaming space - one that saw creators of all sizes exploring new directions and signing new contracts with different platforms.
