Swedish YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg seems to be having an excellent week. On 19 August, PewDiePie married his girlfriend of seven years, Marzia Bisognin. And now, he has crossed the 100 million subscriber mark on YouTube. This makes him the first individual creator and not a company, to cross the 100 million subs mark on YouTube.
As expected, congratulatory messages are already flowing in fast for the YouTuber who was not too long ago, competing with Indian music conglomerate T-series for the most number of subscribers. T-Series was the first YouTube channel to have crossed the 100 million mark. But it was a clear David vs Goliath battle.
YouTube has already tweeted a congratulatory video for PewDiePie’s 100 million subscriber count.
PewDiePie joined YouTube in 2010 and is the first YouTube ‘creator’ to have crossed the 100 million subscribers mark. T-series, in comparison, is a media conglomerate.
Apart from YouTube, many creators have also started wishing PewDiePie for this massive achievement. PewDiePie fans on Twitter cannot stop sharing the Social Blade live counter tracker which shows the numbers jump over from 99,999,999 to 100,000,000.
T-series hasn’t tweeted any congratulatory message yet.
