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.
