Streamer and esports player Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has made an exclusive deal with Twitch – the amount has not been disclosed, but the contract will last for several years. His first stream after returning to the platform kicks off as ESPN informs.
According to Blevins, he spent a lot of time thinking about which service he wanted to partner with – and the Twitch staff “had the best understanding of what goals he set in his career.” Ninja (Ninja short bio) added that in the future he wants to support little-known streamers and content creators more often – apparently by promoting them on his channel.
Ninja is one of the most famous streamers, currently his Twitch channel has over 15 million followers.
That number hasn’t dropped too much since he worked exclusively with Mixer – he signed a deal with Microsoft’s platform back in 2019.
However, in July 2020, Mixer was closed, and many streamers returned to their previous partners – for example, Michael “Shroud” Grzesik also signed a new contract with Twitch.
