PewDiePie loses leadership as the largest YouTube channel for a few moments.
Despite the massive effort of much of the internet to keep PewDiePie at the top, T-Series has taken over the most popular YouTube channel position yet again; however, the lead lasted only a few minutes.
The fateful Monday (12) showed that the war for the conquest of the most significant number of subscribers on the Google platform is intense.
It was not the first time that the Indian channel T-Series took the lead in the dispute, resumed soon after that by PewDiePie.
The first time happened on February 22, when YouTube removed hundreds of accounts from the platform; the second occurrence was on March 9.
Currently, the feud between these giants has reached an incredible 89 million subscribers for each, plus 69 billion views for T-Series and 20 billion for PewDiePie.
Big names such as Elon Musk and Rick and Morty’s co-creator Justin Roiland have already tried to help the Swedish channel maintain its lead by participating in one of its most famous pictures, the Meme Review.
However, they were not able to contain the excessive growth of T-Series.
What is T-Series?
Recorder and Indian film producer, T-Series is famous for the release of Bollywood music videos and movies and has already totaled 13,000 videos, compared to 3,000 for veteran PewDiePie.
The channel has existed since 2006, and its sharp growth began in April 2017, according to data from the Social Blade website.
Felix Kjellberg, PewDiePie himself, sees the situation as “a contest for the soul of YouTube.”
The symbolic tone becomes more evident when we remember that PewDiePie is one of the most influential creators – already a multi-millionaire – and T-Series is a company promoting its products.
The race for the most significant number of subscribers is streamed live on other YouTube channels and attracts thousands of users daily.
