PewDiePie threatens to delete his channel over recent policy changes

 
 

PewDiePie, YouTube's most popular content creator, has threatened to delete his channel over the company's recent policy changes, which has harmed the view counts of most large YouTubers and has resulted in many users getting "unsubbed" from channels without their permission. 

Now, PewDiePie has promised to delete his YouTube channel after it hits 50 million subscribers, which will be a huge milestone for the  platform, being the first channel to hit this prestigious milestone. At the time of writing, PewDiePie is the biggest YouTube content creator, with no other channel coming close to his subscriber count, making his current plans a huge problem for YouTube. 

YouTube may soon be losing its most popular channel, which frequently releases videos that get well over 2 million views and generates a significant amount of ad revenue for the platform as a whole. 

What Felix Kjellberg, PewDiePie, wants if for YouTube to become more transparent in regards to recent changes to the platform and fix the longstanding "subscriber bug" which frequently unsubscribe users from YouTube accounts without their permission.  

One other issue that the YouTuber wants to fix is to make the Subscriptions feed more visible to users and to prevent videos from being hidden from subscribers when they are released. These have been two huge problems that have affected content creators in recent months, both large and small creators alike. 

 

 

Hopefully, this threat will prompt YouTube to take action, making the platform more transparent to creators and allow users to easily follow their favourite YouTube creators without any issues. Right now PewDiePie has 49,621,460 subscribers, making his channel the largest on YouTube. 

Once PewDiePie deletes his YouTube channel he plans on "starting fresh" under a new name, rather than quitting YouTube forever. When the PewDiePie YouTube channel hits 50 million subscribers Felix Kjellberg promises to delete his channel, likely changing the direction YouTube takes in the future.

What a loss that would be.
Also kind of a weak threat if he plans to continue releasing videos on a new channel. All that would accomplish is shafting his fans who want to watch his older videos.Quote

He is YouTube most popular content creator, making him the only man that has the power to change the system in any meaningful way.

I would love to see YouTube's many bugs fixed, and I am very happy to see him take a stand against the establishment. I may not like his content, but I can respect his stance here.Quote

When did YouTube become "the establishment"?

They're an independent company so they can do what they like.Quote
