The war for the title of most-subscribed-YouTube-channel between PewDiePie and YouTube is getting more dramatic than an Indian daily soap. Even the daily soaps that PewDiePie had made fun of a couple of months ago, ticking off Ekta Kapoor in the process, have got nothing on this current tension. Fans of the Indian music channel did everything in their power to make it the most subscribed one on YouTube. But turns out, the Swedish gamer is more popular - the most popular - after all. YouTube decided to take down spam and bot accounts on their platform, bringing T-Series sub count lower than PewDiePie's.
You know what that means? PewDiePie has reclaimed his throne of the most subscribed YouTube channel. This comes after, YouTube, on December 13 announced their clean up services. They issued a statement saying, "On Dec 13-14 you may see a noticeable decrease in your sub count as we remove spam subscriptions. If spam is removed, you'll see a YouTube Studio alert. This should help give you confidence that the subs you do have are real fans!" PewDiePie & T-series Battle! YouTuber Felix Kjellberg Raises Over Rs. 1.3 Crores for Indian NGO CRY in a Day.

Heads up, Creators:
On Dec 13-14 you may see a noticeable decrease in your sub count as we remove spam subscriptions. If spam is removed, you'll see a YouTube Studio alert: https://t.co/3KWMixSXRl
This should help give you confidence that the subs you do have are real fans!

The gap between the number of subscribers between the two channels is more than 140 thousand. You can follow the LIVE battle between PewDiePie and T-Series here:
After the launch of this plan, PewDiePie lost 40,000 subscribers. Whoa. Right? Wrong. Because T-Series ended up losing 2,00,000 subscribers. Seems like fans of the Swedish YouTuber did not really have to hijack printers to support him at the end of the day. What a waste of hacking skills. So, after losing the title for a few days after holding it for 5 straight years, PewDiePie is back as the most subscribed channel on YouTube.
Earlier, PewDiePie (Felix Kjellberg) had raised Rs 1.3 crore for Indian NGO CRY just in one day. He started a Gofund me page to raise money for underprivileged children in India.
