one of the largest sources of information about video games on Twitter leaves the platform

Twitter is undergoing many changes due to its purchase by businessman and billionaire tycoon Elon Muskincluding a change to its Twitter Blue subscription model that would force us to pay 20 dollars a month to have a verified account. Beyond this, today we start the week with sad news that will affect all users who used to find out about video games through this social network: the well-known tweeter Nibel (or Nibellion, if we go by your full username) has left the platform.

“Unfortunately, I was not able to create an interesting and sustainable Patreon” (Nibel)

For those of you who don’t know the name, you just need to know that Nibel did an important job in the video game industry, sharing each new piece of news almost instantly. In this way, she became one of the most important sources of information regarding this sector, but it seems that his profits were far from ideal to continue carrying out this task.

“Today, I leave behind Twitter and Patreon. There will be no more video game coverage for my part on any of the platforms”, begins Nibel in a statement shared through your patreon account. “I have learned a lot in a short period of time. Unfortunately, I was not able to create a Patreon interesting and sustainablewhich is evident in the number of sponsors that were stalled in the first weekend and the first (of many) requests were removed during the first week.

“I have miscalculated the value of my activity on Twitter and realized that it is not worth supporting on its own for the vast majority of people. It’s not me who’s popular, but it’s that work that’s useful. It is not valuable by itself, but a comfortable time saver, and I get it now”, he continues in his final message. “I was unable to create stable income traffic, but I’m still happy I tried. And I want to thank everyone here who also gave me a chance. I’ll be looking at recent payment refunds, I’ve already turned billing off and will probably close this page this week.”

Although the reason for his departure is mainly focused on income, Nibel also makes a slight allusion to all the changes that are taking place right now within the ecosystem of this social network: “I don’t think Twitter has experienced good leadership so far, and this trend will not change with Musk either. I don’t trust the platform”, he comments in his statement. “I don’t trust Musk and his seemingly infinite immaturity. I don’t think Twitter will fall apart instantly, but can disappear in a slow death. Why waste more time?

Nibel was also the victim of imposters on Twitter

Regarding these last words, it should be noted that Nibel had been fighting Twitter algorithms for a long time to notify about the creation of impostor accounts that affected both his work and other personalities of the social network. This has gotten to the point where one account imitated Nibel to post a false news about the confirmation of Bloodborne on PCand the informant’s renown was more than enough for this hoax spread like wildfire.
