PewDiePie became this Monday, August 26th, the first youtuber to reach 100 million subscribers with its channel. This is not the first account to get past the target, but the first solo to do so.
Previously, two other channels had reached 100 million, but none of them belong to a single creator. One is YouTube's own music channel, where music videos from various international artists are published, and the second belongs to the largest studio in the Indian audiovisual industry, T-Series.
YouTube has already taken advantage of Twitter to congratulate the Swedish youtuber.
Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg came to YouTube in 2006, but only in 2010 opened the account that now celebrates 100 million followers. Six years later he celebrated the 50 million mark, but it should be noted that it only took half that time to double the number. The first million arrived in 2012, shortly after winning the 100,000 subscriber mark. At the time of writing, PewDiePie already had nearly 435,000 subscribers over 100 million.
