At the start of 2013 Chris made some remarks on Twitter suggesting that he was leaving Youtube, causing huge uproar amoung his followers. He soon made a video entitled "Quitting Youtube," explaining that he was not leaving Youtube per se but instead stating he will only make videos when he wants to, rather than creating videos to please his viewers. This often leads to long stretches of time between videos, creating speculation amoungst fans that he may have indeed left Youtube for good.
