Time mag jumped the shark 20 years ago, it's little more than recycled tweets and rehashed product press releases while the "journalists" it employs now think checking twitter and instagram is research.

Yeah but not we actually measure and quantify it. Climate change, automation, machine learning, etc. The would is about to change very rapidly and not for the better for the overwhelming majority of people. But go ahead and fiddle while Rome burns and see where that gets you. See where it got Nero. F's in the A.

Thanks for everything, Borderlands, but not every shooter needs to be an RPG…

Given that A) most shooters aren't RPGs, and B) Borderlands was one of the first shooters to have RPG elements, I think they get a pass.

Ninja who? Seriously. I have no idea who that is, and somehow, I get the feeling I'm better off for it.
You should be concerned with how much of an impact his influence will have on his audience of unverified age. E.g. Article: "Fans cheer as Ninja tells Fortnite player to 'suck a dick'"

It is quite interesting to imagine what the future will hold for Ninja, 10 or even 5 years from now.

The list is not what you think it is.
People on it include Mukesh Ambani, Michelle Obama, "Grainne Griffin, Ailbhe Smyth and Orla O'Connor", Spike Lee, Matteo Salvini, Lebron James and 94 others.

on a side note: we can all be thankful Felix Kjellberg did not make the list again. Wink

How many followers does he have? A few mil? What exactly constitutes influence? If he tells them to go jump off a bridge will they? There's a world of difference between watching someone doing something online once in a while and them holding real influence.

It might be off by a bit (I mean, there's a hundred presidents in the world that can undoubtedly get way more shit done than Ninja could), but I don't doubt for a minute that he can persuade a metric fuckton of teens to do something.

I barely know who he is, after seeing his name in headlines a few times I finally read a blurb somewhere about him. I was not impressed. IIRC, he is a Twitch TV "star", known recently for playing Fortnite

"Ninja" is so influential that I have honestly never heard of them.

Then again, I am very much not in the demographic that would.
Ninja brand rolling papers are the bomb. They use an all natural adhesive made from hemp extract and have a tiny built in wire that replaces a roach clip.
After toking I recommend a liberal spritzing of pachouli scented Ninja air spray and gargling with Ninja lemon tree oil mouthwash, Ninja mints or Ninja mouth chewing gum.
Alex Jone was the first influencer who never influenced me.

I don't know if Time's characterization of him is accurate, but if they're right it is a sad statement on society.

Just because i wear Ninja Under-roos, eat Ninja Breakfast cereal and drink Ninja Tequila does not mean I am suceptible to his influencing.
