Forget Miley Cyrus; PewDiePie has come into the new year like a wrecking ball. The Swedish gamer has risen from 18 million YouTube subscribers to 19 million in just 12 days, a 25% faster rate than his previous million.
Some stats about Pewds’ remarkable accomplishment: He scored 83,333 new subscribers each day, 3,472 each hour, 57.9 each minute, and one new subscriber every 1.037 seconds. He reeled in more new subscribers each day than most of the top 200 most subscribed YouTube channels pulled in per week. Oh, and in case you’re not the biggest fan of susbcribers, he also once again topped our YouTube charts by scoring more than 50 million views in a week (and over 215 million in the month of November).
Is there any limit to PewDiePie’s YouTube success? It seems impossible that his popularity could still be accelerating after smashing so many site records, but that seems to be the case. Looks like we need to bring in some advanced calculus to chart to exact graph that represents his trajectory.
