Subscriber counts matter a lot in respect of YouTube’s monetization policies and growth features. For instance, YouTube Stories feature is accessible to those creators who have crossed 10,000 subscribers count. An0ther YouTube’s live streaming feature i.e Super Chat is available when the creator has 1000 subscribers.
