“There it is,” Ahgren said as he beat Blevins’ record. ‘You were here. This is the new record on Twitch for the most subscribers of all time. Holy shit, that was insane. ‘

After Ahgren broke the record, Blevins congratulated his usurper Twitter“Records are meant to be broken,” Blevins wrote. “I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t a bit sad, but congratulations @LudwigAhgren on keeping the new sub-record on Twitch.”
After broadcasting on both YouTube and the now-defunct Mixer, Blevins returned to Twitch last September and signed a multi-year deal to stream exclusively on the platform.
Ahgren and Blevins’ subscription numbers are much higher than those of other Twitch users. Streamer RanbooLive has the third highest score of 114,387 in March, not even half of Blevins’ old record.
While he continues to gain new subscribers, Ahgren announced on Sunday that his non-stop stream will end today, April 13, at 9 p.m. PST. To commemorate the ending, Ahgren stated that he would match any new sub with a $ 5 donation to St. Jude Children’s Hospital or the Animal Humane Society.
