It comes as part of working for We The Unicorns that you need to know all the Twitter handles of every single YouTuber there is. Let me repeat that one more time for you – EVERY SINGLE YOUTUBER. So thanks to PewDiePie’s recent antics it has been increasingly more difficult to hunt him down on there, because he changes his identity pretty much every day.
From incredibly explicit names, to imitating Marina Joyce for a short while, it has become part of our daily routine to hunt down Felix and make a note of his new Twitter identity… and todays one is a goodie. After changing his name to “Midlife Crisis” and updating his profile picture to a rather recognisable YouTuber, we were almost duped this morning when the official PewDiePie Twitter became… Dan Howell.
So far, this new identity hasn’t caused too many problems and has even been acknowledged by Dan himself, who told Felix that his new “username is terrible” and that he should “change [the] icon” because it’s “ugly” – harsh! Obviously PewDiePie is having fun on the Internet at the moment, but we do have to ask if his constant parodying of other YouTubers will eventually press on a couple of nerves – either with creators or fans themselves.
You can see the majestic Twitter dispute below about Felix’s new identity:
