    There was a BIG shake up in the streaming world with Ninja leaving Twitch for Mixer. Mixer has invested a lot in Ninja to really jumpstart their platform. What I want to figure out is whether or not this was a good investment. Now, I'm not shading Ninja. I want to figure out if investing in one big creator is a smart move or not. Today Theorists, we are breaking down the Ninja / Mixer / Twitch situation!

    As a small twitch and mixer streamer myself, I'd like to say that us smaller streamers appreciate the attention we get. I average about 3 viewers/stream and I'm still trying to grow. I raid/host others as small as myself to show support for streamers that I don't even know because I'm sure that like me they have been streaming for a few years. So please, support small streamers. We're personable, you can actually converse with us and we don't expect anything from our viewers other than for our content to be enjoyed. Thank you.

    I find it funny that he's one of the most famous, because I had never heard of him until a few weeks ago. Probably because I hate Fortnite.

    It won't be for long until mixer becomes an anime character like RU-clip Chan, chrome Chan and other chans.

    This seems like the right timing for Mixer considering all the controversy on Twitch lately with the uneven-handedness of how they run the platform. It'd be easy to jump ship with a big influencer moving over. You sound like a shill for Amazon in this video, and I guess the end explains why.
