Ninja Moves to Youtube after Microsoft's Decision to Shut Down Mixer

Popular streamer Tyler Blevins, better known as “Ninja”, is now streaming on Youtube, following news that Microsoft will shut down Mixer.

Blevins had previously abandoned Twitch, where he first found fame, for an undisclosed exclusivity deal with Mixer. The streaming platform’s shutdown has now left many with similar arrangements stranded, with some moving to Facebook gaming, while others are sure to attempt to come back to twitch.

Blevins has built a captive audience over the years, so it’s safe to assume he will not suffer too much from the move, but other streamers are sure to feel the ripples of Mixer’s demise for a long time to come.

Here’s hoping everyone affected can find solid footing in a timely fashion.
