PewDiePie vs T-Series & Facebook, Instagram & Whatsapp Blackout – Today’s Biggest News

YouTube is big business, its most popular creators earn tens of millions of dollars a year…

But for a while now the two channels with the most subscribers have been in a hotly contested battle.

A video game, a million dollar bill board, and vandalism.

They're all fairly intense ways fans have tried to keep PewdiePie the most subscribed to channel on YouTube.

He's been #1 for a long time, but recently T-Series briefly took top spot. It's a channel from India that posts a lot of Bollywood music.

Many Pewdiepie fans say their extreme efforts to win the 'subscriber war' are because they want to support an individual creator rather than a company, although PewDiePie isn't exactly doing it tough. He's got an estimated worth of $28 million.

And it's not doing either channel any harm, both have seen big subscriber increases recently... , and bring in a lot of advertising money. But the way this online fight has spread into the real world has had real life consequences.



Measles is a nasty infectious disease. Which, thanks to vaccines, Australia managed to basically wipe out a few years ago. But recently we've been seeing measles outbreaks popping up again

Experts reckon there are a couple of reasons why this might be happening, like people not being immunised properly. Overseas travellers bringing it over from countries where it's still a bigger problem. And also, people refusing to vaccinate their kids.

There's a small group people called anti-vaxxers who think vaccines are dangerous, even though Doctors & Scientists say that immunisations are safe & important, and have helped wipe out diseases like polio & rubella in Australia.

The World Health Organisation says that anti-vaccine ideas are one of the top 10 biggest health threats in 2019.

And platforms like YouTube and Facebook have announced they're taking steps to try and crackdown on misleading info.



If you've had trouble refreshing or logging into Facebook and Instagram today, you're not alone.

Aussie thrillseeker Jaeger Stone cruised his way to a big win at this extreme windsurfing Storm Chase event off the Irish Coast.
