Ludwig is one of the biggest streamers on the planet today. The streamer recently decided to quit the Amazon-owned platform Twitch and signed an exclusive deal with YouTube gaming.
The Google-owned YouTube has been poaching big streamers from Twitch in the past few months and there seems to be no end in sight. Ludwig explained the reason behind his shocking decision to quit Twitch and join YouTube Gaming.
Ludwig: Twitch To YouTube
In his video ‘Why I Left Twitch’, Ludwig explained the exact reason behind his decision to quit his Twitch journey and pursue YouTube Gaming. “Even though people have called me the ‘golden boy’ of Twitch, I’ve never felt particularly loved by Twitch,” he explained. “I love Twitch, but it hasn’t been a two-way street.”
However, since his move to YouTube, he has gained many new followers along with the existing Twitch fanbase that moved to YouTube to watch him. The new fans, however, are eager to know everything about the streamer.
Ludwig did just that when he shared his story of being fired from Snapchat in his early days. These were the days when Ludwig wasn’t even successful as a streamer and used to work for the picture sharing platform.
‘Snapchat Was Sick’
“Snapchat was sick, but I stole a lot from the workplace,” Ludwig said.
“A lot of the newer companies will have a lot of benefits like fridges stocked with La Croix and Babybel,” he explained. “What I would, allegedly, do is I would bring like a grocery bag and Friday night I would drive to work and I would fill two grocery bags and I’d go home so I could eat it on the weekend because I was broke.”
Also, now that Ludwig has started streaming on his new home, YouTube, fans are eager to know whether he would stage a Subathon 2.0, just like he once did on Twitch. During his Twitch days, Ludwig stayed live on stream for 24 hours for 31 days straight which is one of the longest running Subathons in Twitch’s history date.
However, Ludwig buffed the idea that he would be doing a ‘Subathon 2.0’ on YouTube.
