** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YvrFZAykEI This cat video]] had next to zero attention when TB linked it during a livestream of ''VideoGame/KingdomsOfAmalurReckoning'', as a result of TB's influence, it is now covered in artichoke-facts, and the [[TheOtherWiki wikipedia site for artichokes]] is mauled beyond recognition as of time of writing.

** His review of VideoGame/RenownedExplorers got the developer, abbey games, out of bad weather. Two months after the releasing RE:IS, abbey games almost had to take loans in order to stay afloat, [[http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/AdriaanJansen/20160905/266289/Post_Mortem_Renowned_Explorers.php then totalbiscuit happened]]

** His coverage of the tactical card game ''VideoGame/Faeria'' in March 2017 led to an amusing incident where so many people credited him as their recruiter (an in-game feature that gives both the recruiter and recruitee a loot box) that it quite literally made the game unplayable for him, because he was getting so many rewards. The game developer actually had to rush a patch out ''just'' to fix this issue so TB could play.

** Ditto for his "WTF is..." on ''FrozenSynapse'', which received such a ColbertBump that the game servers couldn't take the amount of players they got.
** His review for ''{{Proun}}'' received such high traffic that the developer's site crashed from the volume of traffic. This was the only place where the game could be bought.

** His "WTF is..." on ''StellarImpact'' once again crashed the servers with the publicity his community brought. [[HilariousInHindsight Funny enough]], he had warned the indie developers that his community tended to crash websites before, and one of them said "[[TemptingFate Feel free to can crash my servers any time]]."

* WhyTheFandomCantHaveNiceThings: In 2016, TB retired from social media because he felt it was negatively impacting his health. His Twitter has since been taken over by a staffer.

Thankfully this was later averted as TB opened a brand-new official subreddit in June and has been pretty good at interacting with fans on there(and even promising to do AMAs).
