A month was enough: The YouTube star known as PewDiePie is back online after having announced a social media sabbatical.

"I have returned. After one month of a long break, I am back," Felix Kjellberg said in a video released on Friday night that had already garnered nearly 6 million views by midday on Saturday.

In mid-January, the 30-year-old Swede announced an indefinite leave of absence from the platform.

"I haven't done much. It's been nice, actually," he said off his time off. PewDiePie said the break was absolutely necessary even though he missed making videos a lot.

He plans to make some small changes to his working process and will not force himself to make daily videos as he did for the past 10 years, he said.

Kjellberg became one of the most successful YouTubers in the world over the previous decade. In 2019 he became the first individual to count more than 100 million subscribers to his channel, a figure which has since risen to 103 million. – dpa
