1. Ninja (Twitch)

The Top 5 Most Popular Fortnite Streamers - Ninja

Ninja is the most popular Fortnite streamer currently. His reach with the game has led to some rather impressive collaborations and coop sessions.

Easily the Most popular streamer of Fortnite is Ninja. Having been with the game since its BR inception, Ninja has experienced a huge bump in the past months which has seen his Twitch channel skyrocket to almost 6.5 million followers (good for first place on Twitch). Besides having a mindblowing amount of followers on Twitch, Ninja has also accrued a total of 158 million views on his channel, which places him at 26th all time for total views (which I expect him to quickly become number 1 in).

Channel accolades aside, Ninja has largely become the mainstream face of both Twitch and Fortnite. Being in this position has allowed Ninja to stream with a number of interesting guests including the likes of Drake. Ninja also hosted a large event in Las Vegas which saw his concurrent viewership reach 600k+. You can find Ninja all across the internet: Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch.
