Ninja's phone number stunt just data-gathering marketing scheme
Youtuber, 'Ninja' duped fans into giving up their personal details for a data-gathering marketing scheme.
GRAYSLAKE, ILLINOIS — Self-titled streamer, 'Ninja' has been caught fooling fans into giving up their personal details for a data-gathering marketing scheme.
YouTuber Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins shocked thousands of fans on the 11th of August when he tweeted a video giving out his personal number with the promise of privately messaging those who contacted him and even playing Fortnite with them.
After messaging him, fans were required to fill out some personal information such as name, gender, birthday, city, and the optional choice of email.
However, Ninja here was actually fooling fans into a data-gathering marketing scheme managed by a company called Community.
Community also says that by agreeing to the terms, you understand that a message coming from Tyler may not even be from him, but instead from Ninja's team.
Community also collects your IP address, your browser selection, device, and your location.
