Journey of your & mine say ‘’our favorite” is phenomenal, let’s have detail look on the same along with this PewDiePie vs T-Series
. Let’s start,
originally registered a YouTube account under the name “Pewdie” in 2006; he explained that “pew” represents the sound of lasers
and “die” refers to death.After forgetting the password to this account, he registered the “PewDiePie” YouTube channel on 29 April 2010. Five years later, Kjellberg recalled, “I knew people were big at other types of videos, but there was no one big in gaming, and I didn’t know you could make money out of it. It was never like a career that I could just quit college to pursue. It was just something I loved to do.
Early on as a YouTube creator, Kjellberg focused on video game commentaries, on 2 September 2011, Kjellberg also began posting weekly vlogs
under the title of Fridays with PewDiePie.
By December 2011, Kjellberg’s channel had around 60,000 subscribers,and on 9 May 2012, it reached 500,000 subscribers. Around the time his channel earned 700,000 subscribers, Kjellberg spoke at Nonick Conference 2012. July 2012 saw his channel reaching 1 million subscribers, and it reached 2 million subscribers in September.
Near the beginning in his YouTube career, Kjellberg used rape jokes
in his videos, and in October 2012, he addressed the issue through a Tumblr
post, writing, “I just wanted to make clear that I’m no longer making rape jokes, as I mentioned before I’m not looking to hurt anyone and I apologise if it ever did. The Globe and Mail
stated “unlike many young gamers, he listened when fans and critics alike pointed out their harmful nature, and resolved to stop making rape jokes.
Fetching the most-subscribed user
On 18 February 2013, the Kjellberg’s channel reached 5 million subscribers, and in April, he was covered in The New York Times after surpassing 6 million subscribers. In May, at the inaugural Starcount Social Stars Awards in Singapore, Kjellberg won the award for “Swedish Social Star”. In July 2013, he overtook Jenna Marbles to become the second most-subscribed YouTube user, and reached 10 million subscribers on 9 July 2013.
Kjellberg overtook the YouTube Spotlight channel to once again become the most-subscribed on YouTube
. Additionally, in the second half of 2013, it earned just under 1.3 billion video views.
In August 2014, Maker Studios released an official PewDiePie app for the iPhone, allowing audiences to view his videos, create custom favourite video feeds and share videos with others. Later in the month, Kjellberg uploaded a video, announcing he would permanently disable comments on his YouTube videos. On his decision, Kjellberg stated most comments consisted of spam and self-advertising, and was not what he wanted to see.
Kjellberg would ultimately continue creating videos under Maker. His relationship with Maker caused the establishment of an official PewDiePie website, app, and online store to sell merchandise, while Kjellberg promoted Maker’s media interests and gave the network a share of his YouTube ad revenue.
In 2014 alone, Kjellberg’s account amassed nearly 14 million new subscribers and over 4.1 billion video views; both figures were higher than any other user.According toSocial Blade
, on 29 December 2014, Kjellberg’s channel amassed over 7 billion views, to become the most-viewed channel
on the website.During July 2015, Kjellberg’s videos were documented to receive over 300 million views per month.On 6 September, Kjellberg’s YouTube account became the first to eclipse 10 billion video views.
PewDiePie vs T–Series
After months of video pleas
and fan-led campaigns, T-Series has beat out PewDiePie to become the first YouTube channel to hit 100 million subscribers.
T-Series passed the 100-million subscriber mark early Wednesday morning, according to Social Blade’s real-time subscriber count tracker
. The channel, ran by an Indian record label that produces Bollywood music, thanked its fans for “being part of out journey.”
At the time T-Series hit the 100-million mark, the subscriber count for gamer-vlogger PewDiePie was at just above 96 million
But the two channels have been neck-and-neck
for months, with the competing channels consistentlyexchanging leads
as their subscriber counts were boosted dramatically. The battle took on bigger significance as it was became interpreted as a competition between
independent creators like PewDiePie and major corporations like T-Series.
Early on, the slogan “subscribe to PewDiePie” became a self-purported rallying cry for fans and other independent YouTube creators, and appeared at the Super Bowl
, on billboards
, and even on the hacked front page of the Wall Street Journal
However, the flurried race also took on hateful connotations. The words “subscribe to PewDiePie” were graffitied on
a World War II memorial in March.
PewDiePie called for the end of the battle with T-Series, saying that the fight had become about “beating another channel” instead of about “love and support.”
“To put in plainly, I didn’t want hate to win,” PewDiePie said in his video
In a congratulatory tweet
about T-Series hitting the 100-million mark, YouTube hinted that the Indian music company would be awarded a trophy for its achievement. As The Verge’s Julia Alexander points out
, the award is likely a Play Button trophy that YouTube gives out to creators that reach certain numbers of subscribers. Considering the 10-million subscriber award is made to look like a diamond
, it’ll be interesting to see how YouTube commemorates T-Series’ newest accomplishment.
