Nathan Triska has been active in social media since 2012, through Twitter. His first tryst with live video content began when he started experimenting in Vine and its six-second long looping video format.

His fans followed him there too and their numbers continued to go up. His videos focus on hilarious pranks, customary roasts, and all that is super entertaining at the moment. He has a very unique personal style that is very boy-next-door. His messy golden-brown hair and sparkly blue eyes draw the viewers’ attention immediately.

If that is not a yardstick of success, then what else is? According to his website, Nathan Triska has been on tours like Digitour Winter, Playlist Live, and VidCon.
