Forbes Top Creators 2023: Ninja listed as one of the few gamers

Ninja, who first broke the internet back in 2018 during the early Fortnite years, was officially named as one of the Top Creators of 2023 on Forbes. The streamer has been dominating the gaming community since the early years of Twitch while making jumps to different streaming platforms throughout this time period.

The streamer took a massive deal with Mixer back in 2019 and found himself streaming on Twitch again only a year later after Mixer announced it was shutting down.

Ninja has seen different waves of popularity in his streaming career, as a majority of creators do. 2023 was actually one of his lower years in numbers, as he made a huge switch to streaming on multiple different platforms at once.

This was a bold move for the streamer, as it caused him to lose his partnership with Twitch. Yet, it seemed as if his move to multiple platforms at once had not gone unnoticed.

Ninja's airtime sees lower numbers in 2023

According to, Ninja's airtime on Twitch has decreased by quite a bit since 2021. In the previous 30 days, the streamer had only streamed for a total of 57 hours, which averages around 14 hours a week.

As you can see in the image above, Ninja's airtime has decreased DRAMATICALLY since 2021, when the steamer was active for more than 100 hours a month.

So has this affected the streamer's average viewership?

In the recent year, Ninja has seen a large influx in viewership changes. Recently the streamer has averaged far less than in the past, putting himself at around 7,300 average viewers. This still seems like a lot, right? In the past, Ninja was peaking at over 100,000 viewers in his streams. His drop in viewership possibly correlates with his lack of streaming in recent months.

Regardless, Ninja's lack of streaming has yet to be a barrier for him in popularity. The streamer making the Forbes Top Creators 2023 is a huge feat for Ninja AND the gaming community.
