Summit1G created his Twitch account in 2011 but only started streaming in 2013. Being one of the first streamers on the platform, he became one of the most followed streamers on Twitch. There was even a time that he was the most followed streamer until overtaken by number 1 Fortnite Battle Royale player-streamer, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, in 2017.
Summit1G’s consistent flow of subscribers and viewers earned him a multi-year exclusive contract with Twitch in 2020. He has been a big inspiration for popular streamers like ‘DrDisrespect’ and ‘TimTheTatman’ and big household names like ‘Shroud’ and ‘xQc’.
