YouTube Subscribers Battle: PewDiePie Officially Dethroned by T-Series

For several months now, a lot of buzz has been going on concerning PewDiePie, a YouTuber that has long rested at the very top of the most subscribed creators on the platform at numbers so high that they made him a distant first in this list, and T-Series, a record label based in India. The buzz concerned the prospect of T-Series surpassing PewDiePie in terms of the number of subscribers that their YouTube channel currently has. T-Series has finally officially overtaken PewDiePie as the most subscribed channel of all time, creating a furor among users of the internet in general.

This has been quite controversial for a number of reasons, one of these reasons being that PewDiePie is a content creator that creates content specifically for YouTube, and T-Series is a multinational corporation based in India that only used YouTube as a home for some of the content that it is creating on a regular basis. People that consider YouTube to be a legitimate platform for content have expressed concern that this shows a trend wherein big corporations will be able to pour money into their marketing campaigns and overtake YouTubers who built their followings from scratch using nothing but hard work and their personalities.

All of that being said, it is fair to take into consideration the fact that T-Series is a big name corporation in an emerging market that is finding its foothold in the world of the internet. This is definitely better than some western corporation getting to the top of the platform because it at least means that content from emerging markets is starting to get a lot more traction in the world.
