And his subscriber count is growing like CRAZY.

Logan Paul is officially on Twitch, and is gaining followers like nobody's business.

The social media behemoth - whose switch from Vine to YouTube helped contribute to a shift in content culture that favoured high-octane, irresponsible stunts that alienate everyone except young teenagers who should really have better role models - has just infiltrated Twitch. But while his arrival on the popular game live-streaming platform might be good news for his army of young fans, many established Twitchers are pretty peeved at the news.

Calling out Logan's poor track record on YouTube, high-profile Twitcher Rod Breslau‏ Tweeted, "you manipulated young kids for your content... we don't want you on Twitch." Another high-profile Twitch gamer, Katie Peters, implored Twitch to "think carefully" about letting Logan Paul use the platform.

It wasn't just Twitch personalities that hit back at the news, with many fans and viewers also taking to Twitter to vent their frustration at Logan coming to Twitch. But those who are angry about Logan's latest career move should be careful - Twitch has very stringent guidelines that punish those who are seen to "intimidate, degrade, abuse, or bully others, or create a hostile environment for others," both on and off the platform.

How many Twitch followers does Logan have

Like it or not, Logan is now on Twitch - and his popularity growth on the platform is as rapid as you'd expect, with the YouTuber gaining 100,000 subscribers before "in a few hours."
