In the fast-moving world of YouTube, it’s hard to keep up. With creators uploading videos, sharing on Twitter, creating Snapchat stories, and engaging in every other form of social media imaginable, the canon of the fandom is ever-expanding. Thankfully, one Twitter account is distilling the world of YouTube into easily digestible nuggets of information that will keep you informed about the video platform’s goings-on — without ever actually watching a video.
The mastermind behind @YTuberUpdates is 16-year-old New Jerseyan Ryan Curran. He began YouTuberUpdates in January 2014 on a snow day, inspired by other Twitter fan accounts for acts like One Direction and Justin Bieber. The account grew quickly, with more than 6,000 followers in the first month of it running, and has grown to 45,700 followers in less than a year.
