PewDiePie: The first personal YouTube channel to reach 100 million subscribers

Felix Kjellberg's PewDiePie channel reached 100 million followers on August 26.

According to FirstPost, it seems that "King of YouTuber" PewDiePie (real name Felix Kjellberg) has just had a great week when he received a lot of good news. Specifically, on August 19, PewDiePie officially got married her 8-year-old girlfriend, Marzia Bisognin. Then on August 26, his YouTube channel continued to pick up a huge record when it surpassed 100 million subscribers.

Kjellberg, born in 1989, is a Swedish. He set up the PewDiePie channel in April 2010. By 2011, he decided to leave the Chalmers University of Technology to focus on building content. The channel reached one million registrations on November 7, 2012. By August 2013, PewDiePie became the most registered YouTuber, surpassing the Smosh channel. By November that year, it reached 15 million subscribers.

PewDiePie focuses on video games, comment clips that mix humorous situations during 9 years of operation. The content that Kjellberg posted has tens of millions of viewers, even hundreds of millions. According to Socialblade, this channel generates revenue of between $ 140,000 and $ 2.2 million per month. Business Insider also said PewDiePie brought $ 15.5 million for Kjellberg in 2018. It is revealed that this famous YouTuber guy owns a property worth up to $ 20 million.

In fact, PewDiePie is not the first YouTube channel to reach 100 million subscribers. This achievement had previously belonged to the T-Series, a YouTube channel specializing in Indian soundtracks.

Last year, YouTube users also witnessed the controversial race of PewDiePie and T-Series. Between 2018, PewDiePie, who was at the top of the subscriber volume, urged fans to stand by his side and posted some videos using racist language and prejudice against Indians. Some extremists, even hacked into computer systems, called for support for their idol.

The phrase "Subscriber to PewDiePie" continued to cause a reaction earlier this year, when the mosque terrorist in Christchurch city (New Zealand) called "Remember to watch PewDiePie's YouTube channel" when streaming the shooting scene. Kjellberg then asked fans to stop using the phrase and felt depressed when his name was mentioned in a terrorist incident.

With the advantage of content and a large number of YouTube users in India, T-Series has surpassed PewDiePie to top the world since early 2019. This channel currently has more than 109 million subscribers on the video platform of Google. However, in the case of PewDiePie, he was the first personal creator, not a major business or media company, to surpass the first 100 million subscribers on YouTube.

In addition to YouTube, many well-known content creators also sent congratulations to PewDiePie for this great achievement. Also, fans of this guy on Twitter also can't stop sharing videos recording the number of subscribers from 99,999,999 to 100,000,000.
