We the Unicorns

Their youth is yours

Forbes have released the names of their '30 Under 30' list, a list of the most influential people under the age of 30 years old in various fields. The list, which presumably exists just to make 30 year olds feel real bad about themselves, includes stars of stage, screen and industry - but more importantly, YouTubers!

That's right,  Tyler Oakley (creator, activist), Bethany Mota (star of the best meme I ever made), Lele Pons (former Vine star, known gravity enthusiast), Ryan Higa (YouTube veteran) and Troye Sivan (he still counts as a YouTuber and you can't tell us otherwise) have all made the list. to honest, this shouldn't come as a surprise considering how much influence YouTubers have in society in 2017. From entertainment, charity and even politics, our YouTube faves are dominating the culture in the best way possible.
