Lee is influential through social media, with over 2.3 million followers on Twitter and over 2.1 million on Instagram, as of February 2015.[3][5] Lee has done a number of collaborations on his channel with other YouTubers, including: Jack and Finn Harries, Grace Helbig, Tyler Oakley, Troye Sivan, Zoe Sugg, Marcus Butler, Shane Dawson, Joe Sugg and many others.
