It is possible to become renowned on the internet, even if no one is aware of your physical appearance, provided you take the necessary precautions. One such YouTube personality is Martin Walls, who has established himself as an artist thanks to the popularity of his horror series The Walten Files. It’s not only his videos that have made Martin famous. The fact that he’s one of many YouTubers who hides his identity also helps. To avoid being recognized, he communicates with his followers using a digital stand-in.
Martin just revealed his identity on TikTok
On the other hand, Martin has just done something that he has never done before. He has shown his face. As widely reported, Martin recently had a face reveal on TikTok. Still, he urged his fans not to record the video or publish any screenshots or photos of the event. Most of Martin’s fans have honoured his request for privacy. However, a vocal minority has expressed displeasure at missing the big announcement. Fans who missed the opportunity to view Martin’s true appearance on the video he shared before he swiftly erased it will never know what he looks like. Users have drawn portraits of Martin despite his request that no pictures be taken. Surprisingly, it looks much like his avatar, just as everyone expected.
Twitter users’ first responses were not very positive
Undoubtedly, those who saw Martin’s unveiling of his face are overjoyed, but others who did not may now feel left out. Martin Walls revealed his face, then removed it, and I was sound asleep the whole time. I dislike this site, one person said. Because TikTok alerts aren’t working, I’m going to bed angry that I missed the Martin Walls face reveal. Despite Martin’s request that his followers not capture screenshots of him, several individuals opted to do so anyway.
One user commented, “I am praying for Martin Walls’ sanity since some of the twf fans are nuts. Why would you screenshot and publish someone’s face reveal after it’s been deleted? That’s just odd.” Please do not show any screenshots of Martin Walls’ face reveal to anybody, not even your closest friends since he has asked that it not be widely distributed. Another user said that please be considerate of his space and understand why he made that decision. While screenshots may have been shared, they haven’t gone viral.
Considering the size of his audience, Martin should feel very fortunate to have such devoted followers. Martin, a Chilean national, has amassed close to 200,000 YouTube subscribers and more than 40,000 Twitter followers. Even if he does not have the most followers of any influencer globally, the substantial number of people that follow him are very devoted to him. One of the benefits of the internet is that it allows you to maintain your anonymity even as your popularity rises. Martin is renowned despite the fact that his face is not generally known to the general public.
