Dan Middleton is maybe one of the lesser known Social Media Influencers, as he began making his way on Social Media through gaming, which doesn’t always overlap like lifestyle or travel influencer. Despite this, Dan has managed to gain 2.9 million Instagram followers and is one of the top Youtubers, as he is 38th most subscribed. Could gaming influencers finally start to break through to lifestyle thanks to Dan?
