Not only this, the ever-increasing popularity of Fortnite has lead to some streamers seeing a huge growth in their audiences, with Luminosity’s Ninja recently hitting 100,000 subscribers – a number that has not been seen until this point.

This surge in subscribers is likely related to the Twitch Prime promotion released last week, allowing Prime members to unlock 4 cosmetic items in Fortnite Battle Royale. Only time will tell, we’ll have to wait and see how the trends progress in the coming months.
