What you need to know
- Popular streamer Ninja recently signed a deal with Mixer to stream exclusively on the platform.
- He managed to cross 500,000 followers after his first stream.
- Now, he's crossed a million subscribers.
Less than a week ago, we reported that the popular streamer Ninja, who recently started streaming exclusively on Mixer, crossed 500,000 followers on the platform. Today, he announced that he has already passed a million subscribers. Keep in mind that the follower count and subscriber count is separate. His follower count is around 800,000 at the moment.
Speaking about reaching this milestone, Ninja said, "thank you for all the incredible support. I haven't felt this good in a long time." It's great to see that his fans followed him to Mixer and they're supporting him during this next chapter.

Oddly enough, it seems like other streamers like Dr DisRespect want to join Mixer. Recently, the infamous streamer said, "I don't give a f*** what platform I stream on, dude. Whatever place makes me more money I'll f****** stream on." The streamer was recently banned on Twitch for streaming from a toilet. Dr DisRespect added that he knows other big-name individuals are in talks with Mixer.
It'll be interesting to see how Ninja's audience continues to grow in the weeks and months to come. Hopefully, it'll be a beneficial relationship for both parties.

How many followers did he have on twitch?
5 million and 2.5 million subscribers
Were you genuinely interested (in which case you could have found out with a search) or was that a rhetorical question that somehow implies that everyone who watched him on Twitch should have followed him to Mixer or else it's a fail?
It was just a question and one in which I didn't care enough to know the answer to try and find it on my own given that I had to put my two little kids to sleep. I was confident there would be a nice fellow user like Dhananjay Bhurke who either knew the answer or was happy to research and post it for me and other curious users. BTW, thanks Dhananjay. John, would you like me to answer any other questions?
"it seems like other streamers like Dr DisRespect want to join Mixer" Given that he's been banned from Twitch, I'd guess that he's just interested in a payday. All of them are, of course, and there's nothing inherently wrong with that, but it isn't really saying anything about Mixer that someone banned from a competing platform would take money to join.
it's odd that you wanted to point out that Dr DisRespect is in it for the payday, when they quote him saying just that in the following sentence.
What's the difference between followers and subscribers?
Followers I'm guessing are just people that watch the channel, whereas subscribers have subscribed so they get updates when new content fro that streamer becomes available (like subscribing to a YouTube channel as opposed to just watching YouTube videos). I am merely guessing though.
Wrong. Followers only get notifications and subscribers pay a few dollars to support the streamer, get certain emojis and can watch the stream ad free.
