This will be a two-post mini-timeline. I'll do more if you want. One Click Away: A YouTube Alt TL POD: April 24, 2005 Current Date: October 26, 2019 In this TL, YouTube's history changes, such as no demonetization(or strict monetization guidelines), no abbreviated sub counts, and a slower "corporate takeover". Here's a little history of this TL: Founded in 2005 by Steve Chen and his two friends Chad Hurley and Jawed Karim, YouTube has always been the place for people to jump-start their online fame. People such as Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg and German Garmendia have amassed millions upon millions of subscribers. The site maintains just over one billion accounts, most with very little subscribers, or content at least. Slowly, companies have began to take off on the platform, such as Cocomelon-Nursery Rhymes and WWE, but this is becoming a problem. Out of the top 50 most subscribed, 22 are companies, including 5 in the top 10. This idea worries many users, who say that within 5-10 years, YouTube will become a site for companies only, weeding out the individual people who made it famous in the first place. But the positives outweigh the negatives, as the top 3 are run by one or two people(guess who #2 and #3 is, PewDiePie is #1). Part 2 will come tomorrow, this is James, totally not ripping off Optimus' outro, and i'll see you then.
