Twitch star Tyler Blevins Aka Ninja has recently opened up about his struggles with the huge pressure on streaming on the platform that comes with modern internet fame.

Ninja is a popular American Twitch streamer, YouTuber and professional gamer. He has now become one of the most famous streamers around the world and he also was the most followed streamer on Twitch gaining more than 16.8 million followers.

He’s even taken his success mainstream, hosting events, appearing in movies, and more. Now, as he sits in an interview with The Cosmic Wonder together with fellow streamer Pokimane – who is the most followed female streamer on the platform, Ninja has opened up on one side of his Twitch streaming career he’s struggled with and that is the immense pressure.

He says he often struggles with the “huge pressure” that comes with his Twitch fame. Ninja revealed he’s always struggled to handle the pressure of his Twitch stardom, from his fledgling 2016 streams, to his popularity spike at the height of Fortnite’s worldwide fame, and even to now.

Here’s what he said; “There’s so much pressure. It always feels like, ‘don’t mess up’. There’s always that hovering over your head. It’s so taxing. Even when you grow, and you know you have a loyal audience, you’re actually at a stage where you have to keep them happy. There’s always something that adds even more of that work.”

Regardless, even though with all the pressures Twitch brings, Ninja claimed that he wouldn’t trade it in for the world as he added; “I understand the situation I am in. I’m grateful for everything that has happened, everything I have in my life right now. I am blessed.”
