PewDiePie vs T-Series: Race for top YouTube channel gets intense
PewDiePie lost his crown the most number of times this week ever since his race against T-Series began in October.
This past week has been the most dramatic in the ongoing YouTube battle between PewDiePie and T-Series. The Indian music label surpassed the Swedish YouTuber multiple times with the subscriber gap as high as 33,000.
PewDiePie and T-Series are now close to reaching 100 million subscribers on YouTube. At the time of writing this story, PewDiePie is leading by around 13,000 subscribers. It won't be long till both channels reach the 100 million mark on YouTube. T-Series took the top YouTube channel crown quite a few times this past week, but PewDiePie's fans managed to get back on track almost immediately.
However, it was tough for the Pewds army to get the YouTube channel on top with a subscriber gap of around 33,000. This was possibly the longest T-Series remained the top YouTube channel. Twitter account PewDiePie subgap bot has been keeping a track of the subscriber count between the two YouTube channels. It also sends out red alerts whenever T-Series passes PewDiePie, which was the most earlier this week.
The crazy turn of events even led to the YouTuber himself turning into the biggest K-Pop BTS fan. As you all may know, BTS has one of the biggest fandoms and also hold one of the strongest dominance online.

Two days back, PewDiePie unfollowed everyone on Twitter except for BTS' official account. He also changed his Twitter bio to the "#1 BTS Stan Account". PewDiePie has also been tweeting with GIFs of BTS members. This could be one of PewDiePie's desperate measures to retain his YouTube crown. Or he could just be fooling around.
T-Series hasn't been quiet either. Earlier this month, the company's CEO Bhushan Kumar tweeted a video urging Indians to subscribe to T-Series and create history by making it the first Indian YouTube channel to do so. This was followed by popular Bollywood actors like Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan campaigning on Twitter for T-Series.
