One of the biggest and most subscribed Twitch streamers Ludwig is officially moving to YouTube.
Ludwig Anders Ahgren is an American Twitch variety streamer. He usually streams games on his streams with occasional sprinkles of non-game-related content such as game shows, contests, and gambling. He also worked as an Esports commentator at various Super Smash Bros Melee tournaments. Since joining Twitch as a streamer, Ludwig has become one of the biggest channels on the site.
Back in March of 2021, Ludwig hosted a Subathon Livestream spanning over 31 days. He would extend his Livestream by 30 seconds for each viewer that subscribed. During this time, Ludwig was always online and everyone saw him eating, sleeping, and bathing or going on about his daily life. At the end of the subathon, Ludwig became the biggest subscribed channel on Twitch.
But, in a recent surprise announcement, Ludwig announced he is moving exclusively to YouTube.
A few hours ago, Ludwig posted a video on his Twitter announcing his move to YouTube. The video starts off with Ludwig and his roommate driving a purple car and parking it near a shopping mall. The purple car symbolizes his journey on Twitch for the last couple of years.
Later they move a little bit further from the car and it explodes scaring everyone. Then they suddenly spot the same model of car but only this time it’s red symbolizing YouTube. Ludwig and his roommate Slime joke about it being the same but different color and decide to take it home.
They both then drive off in the red car and Slime asks, “Wait, don’t you get in trouble for playing music” to which Ludwig responds, “Not in this car”. This was pointing to the recent DMCA strikes that Twitch faced and many streamers had to delete lots of old videos with music to prevent a channel strike.
Starting from November 30, 2021, Ludwig will be streaming officially on YouTube.
Ludwing also made a video on his YouTube channel explaining his reasoning behind moving to YouTube.
