For the first time since July 2019, Tyler "Ninja" Blevins streamed live on Twitch.

The stream lasted for roughly two hours, beginning Wednesday at 9 a.m. ET on Blevins' Twitch channel. Blevins played Fortnite and Call of Duty: Warzone with Ben "DrLupo" Lupo.

Blevins tweeted that the stream reached a peak of just over 98,000 viewers, with an average of 70,319. He was also the most-viewed streamer on Twitch at most points throughout the two-hour span.

Rod "Slasher" Breslau reported on Twitter that this stream was of Blevins' own accord and was not part of a larger exclusivity deal, and that Blevins is still negotiating with platforms.

Blevins ended his stream by addressing his viewers, saying that he misses streaming and that he aims to stream more regularly. This was Blevins' first livestream since going live on YouTube to play Fortnite in July.

Inappropriate content was seen on Blevins' dormant Twitch channel in August 2019, after Blevins left the platform for Mixer. The content was part of a promoted grid of streams users saw when they visited the offline channel. Blevins took to social media saying he was "disgusted and so sorry" about that content being shown without his consent on the channel.

Twitch CEO Emmett Shear apologized about the incident in a series of tweets, saying, "The lewd content that appeared on the @ninja offline channel page grossly violates our terms of service, and we've permanently suspended the account in question." Shear also apologized to Blevins.
