Ninja, Twitch's Biggest 'Fortnite' Streamer, Goes Exclusive With Microsoft's Mixer

Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, the Fortnite streamer who rose to mainstream prominence on Twitch, is leaving the streaming platform to broadcast exclusively on Mixer, an oft-ignored streaming platform that was acquired by Microsoft in 2016, and which so far hasn't been unable to contend with the likes of Twitch and YouTube.

I’m sure this is in no way related to the Mixer layoffs that were announced today.

Need to make room for all that money they spent on this exclusivity deal.

If I got laid off to line Ninja’s palm with silver I’d probably never get over it.

If Twitch isn’t going to police itself then hey, good on Mixer for scooping up some problematic talent and jumping on that grenade, I guess.
