After successfully completing their Twitter likes challenge, albert12798 is now set to join Luminosity Gaming. The challenge took place on December 21, and albert12798 officially joined the organization on December 22.

Luminosity kicked off the challenge by offering to sponsor anyone who received 100,000 likes on their reply to Luminosity’s tweet. With a simple response of “that’s easy,” albert12798 blew the challenge out of the water. His reply has already garnered over 115,000 likes. In contrast, the second-place reply currently has less than 9,000 likes.

Earlier this morning, albert12798 tweeted “yo” at Luminosity. A couple hours later, he shared a gif of a contract with the caption “it’s official,” hinting that his induction into the team was legitimately underway. Ultimately, Luminosity officially welcomed him to the team in a tweet that referred to him as “the CEO of Ratio.”

More about Luminosity’s albert12798

Though he lacks a profile picture, the faceless albert12798 has a lot of personality. The account owner is notorious for his uncanny ability to ratio other Twitter users. Seemingly at will, albert12798 can get more likes than even celebrities when he replies to their tweets.

Impressively, albert12798 leveraged his ratio-ing power in order to win Luminosity’s Twitter challenge. As a result, he has become the latest individual to join Luminosity Gaming, and for quite a different reason from Luminosity’s other players.

Luminosity Gaming noted that albert12798 has become the “first meme account” to join an esports organization. Admittedly, it is unclear what his role as the organization will be. After all, he has no relation to esports competition, and he is not a content creator in the traditional sense. Regardless, with over 326,000 Twitter followers, albert12798 undoubtedly has a substantial audience that he can reach.

Disclosure: Luminosity Gaming is a subsidiary of Enthusiast Gaming, which owns and operates Daily Esports.
