Career


Twi registered his first YouTube channel on 8 May 2016 under the name Twi Shorts. He initially uploaded his first video on the very next day and it was titled Attack of the Marios! Deathrun map with TheCoolCreeper55. However, Twi was never consistent in uploading videos to his channel and uploaded some videos every now and then till February 2018. His content did not make any notable impressions during this period of time which subsequently led to Twi going inactive for over three years.


With the release of YouTube Shorts, Twi was tempted to try his luck as a content creator once again. As a result, Twi deleted all existing videos from his YouTube channel and decided to solely focus on uploading his content to YouTube Shorts.


Twi uploaded his first Shorts in February 2021 and it was titled, Thomas The Tank Engine Fortnite. The video featured Thomas The Tank Engine’s introduction theme song recreated on Fortnite. The video earned over 75K views and put Twi directly in the spotlight.

Unbeknownst to Twi at the time, this video alongside the other handful of videos he uploaded in the coming months helped him earn over 10,000 subscribers by March and over 50,000 subscribers by the end of June.


Twi had uploaded over 36 Shorts to his channel by the end of March 2021. On April 14, Twi uploaded a video titled, Montero in Minecraft (Call Me By Your Name) (Official Parody). The video lay dormant for a couple of months before the original Lil Nas X song went viral on TikTok and other popular social media platforms. Thanks to the virality of the song, Twi’s parody blew up in terms of viewership. The video had over 300K views before Montero became viral and in less than a week, that number reached over 4.5 million views. As of August 2022, Twi’s parody has amassed over 37 million views making it one of his most popular videos.

After Twi’s parody became a viral sensation in its own right, Twi noticed the videos which included music in them seemed to be doing better than his regular gaming Shorts. This eventually led to Twi creating his now-signature video series which incorporated repitching the sound of Minecraft’s elements and in-game sounds to different songs.

Realizing the unique nature of his content, Twi has further diversified his content to include another person who helps him in creating visual murals that accompany the usual music to create a unique song remix.



Thanks to YouTube Shorts’ format allowing Twi’s content to flourish, his YouTube channel doubled its subscribership to 100,000 by July 2. By the end of October 2021,
