According to a YouTube press release distributed this week, Fortnite broke the all-time record for most uploads for a video game in a single month in February.

elrubiusOMG, a very popular Spanish YouTuber with more than 28 million subscribers, orchestrated a global Fortniteevent on March 25 that drew in 99 other YouTube participants. elrubius, whose real name is Rubén Doblas Gundersen, is a 28-year-old YouTuber who lives in Madrid and is best known for his gaming and vlogging videos.

"Fortnite" is fast becoming a cultural phenomenon and has set a new YouTube record for a live gaming stream. The stream even caught the attention of Alex Rubens, a member of YouTube's esports content partnerships team. Google is more reluctant to remove entire videos from YouTube, but has been willing to do so with terrorism-related content.

The most popular video platform on the planet is banning all videos which teach people how to manufacture firearms, ammo and high capacity magazines, and also prohibits vloggers teaching viewers how to install certain accessories or modifications.

Those kinds of insane stats are hard to put into context, but they help tell the story of how Fortnite is riding the wave it's on right now, with YouTube Gaming and Twitch serving as the swell. The stream skyrocketed past 600 000 concurrent viewers, destroying previous viewership records. While it is perhaps the biggest game in the world right now, records are being broken left, right and centre, meaning that anything could happen. They just released their mobile version on iOS, which is very hard to get done. I did survive, but you get the struggle. "So just the accessibility and how friendly the game is. they're just hitting every single mark perfectly". "PornHub has a history of being a proactive voice in the online community, as well as operating a resilient and robust video streaming platform".
