YouTube's most popular personality PewDiePie has decided that, going forward, he will turn off comments on all of his videos. In his latest video he explains in great detail why he thinks comments on his videos are mostly useless and an aggravation to deal with.
"I go to the comments, and it's mainly spam, it's people self-advertising, people that are trying to provoke, people who reply to all these...just all this stuff that, to me, it doesn't mean anything," he says in the video.
Instead PewDiePie says that he will find other ways for his viewers to interact with him such as Twitter or Reddit.
You can listen to him talk about removing comments at the 2:38 mark in the video to your left. Prior to that he talks about ALS and the ice bucket challenge.
Given the vitriol on Twitter over the last few weeks concerning "gamers," "journalistic integrity," and "feminism ruining video games," Twitter might not be the best place to host a discussion on anything.
PewDiePie is one of the most popular YouTube personalities on the planet, with a loyal following of 30 million subscribers.
