PewDiePie, YouTube sensation, has made history reaching 10 billion views in his game-oriented channel. He took Twitter to announce his accomplishment on September 6 where he revealed the big figure.


PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, was in news lately for having made $ 7.5 million in 2014 from his YouTube gaming account. Kjellberg is well-known for his YouTube account as well as other game-related sites, reported Arcadesushi.

Felix Kjellberg posted on Twitter: “Today we made history! 10 billion views! THIS IS INSANE. Thank you all so much! Kisses”

The milestone of 10 billion views might not be impressive for a few but it is worth noting that the current population on earth is 7 billion and it would take another 65 years to hit the projected mark.
