With over 358K followers on Twitter, Tatman’s army is growing larger by the second. Here is what we know about the avid gamer.
TimTheTatman Bio (Age)
Tatman isn’t your average celebrity, as a result, not a lot about his early days, education et cetera is readily available online for the public’s consumption. He sticks to his space – the world of Twitch, as well as his YouTube channel where fans get to know about him from what he reveals. We went on some digging and unearthed some facts about TimTheTatman.
One thing his fans often ponder about when they watch him do magic with the gamepads is “how old could this dude be”? Well, don’t get deceived by the huge body and pot belly, Tim was born in 1990, on the 8th of April to be precise. Yeah, he belongs to the Aries team.
Not much is known about his upbringing but it is clear to see it involved a lot of gaming, as he once revealed that gaming has always been a part of his life. In his YouTube bio, Tim says he has been playing video games since he was in the womb and his fans couldn’t agree more.
Obviously, Tim has always been a nerd and he couldn’t be prouder of it. Tatman brought his gaming skills to the world of Twitch in 2012 and it wasn’t long before he garnered traction.

His Net Worth
Gaming has long evolved from just a means of catching fun to serious business. The likes of YouTube’s PewDiePie rake in 6 to 7 figures yearly from their uber-popular channels. TimTheTatman is not quite at PewDiePie’s level but the fact that he left his full-time job for streaming full-time says a lot about how much the platform pays.
YouTubers earn mostly from ads but for Twitch stars, it is a bit different as they earn from their subscribers. How? While subscription on YouTube is totally free, subscription on Twitch costs exactly $4.99 per month, so apparently, the more subscribers you have, the richer you are. The richest Twitch star, Ninja reportedly earns $500,000 monthly. To put Tim’s earnings in view, he has at least $1.6 million followers on Twitch.
But subscription isn’t their only source of income. Twitch stars like Tim benefit from donations as well as from sponsorship deals. The sponsorship deals are usually in return for free gadgets, for example, you display a Logitech ad in exchange for a free mouse or something but the very popular stars earn cash as well. TimtheTatman is affiliated with brands like Monster Energy, the gaming hardware manufacturing company, Razer, American computer manufacturer and retailer, Cyber Power, and Japan’s Audio Technica.
From estimations, TimTheTatman’s net worth sits somewhere between $500,000 and $1 million.
