David Dobrik in the Title

Image
Six days ago after watching all the Snapchat stories of David Dobrik's friends in Las Vegas to celebrate his 21st birthday I thought to record all of them and neatly compile them to a Youtube video. I uploaded it to my second channel and now it has over 13,000 views and insanely high watch time. I did monetize it not to make a quick buck but to see what kind of revenue it could do. Within two days it got claimed by Collab and was ranked #1 in search for "David Dobrik birthday" ahead of even David's vlog about this. I have put cards and end cards in the video to related videos and it is driving some traffic to those videos which actually gets me more excited than the insane views than this one video does.
 I often wondered before why compilation videos of popular people were always still up and not taken down, I realize now that networks like Collab would rather they be up and claim them to get as many monetized views as possible for themselves as supposed their prop…

I wish I had an online following

See that, that's just a random reply tweet to Niantic Pokemon Go Twitter, it was of my usual witty replies but this one took off as "popular" or "relatable". It got 56 likes and 3 retweets with over 18,000 impressions. Compare these numbers to someone with an online presence and they'll seem like nothing by comparison but still.
   I try to tweet most every day and come up with interesting things to tweet about and even tweet on trending hashtags. I even promote it on my popular videos on both channels but to no positive result. I've been on 70-75 followers for over a year and cannot gain an audience, what exactly does it take for an online following? I get it, I'm not good-looking but I can be very funny if I do say so myself.  But for just one reply tweet at a time I can get just a glimpse of some online popularity.
