It may have been years after the LeafyIsHere channel got shut down from Youtube for inappropriate content – but Leafy is still active on sites such as Twitter and TikTok. Despite stepping away from the spotlight of his glory days, it turns out that he still has a fairly big following on various platforms, with over 865,000 on Twitter alone.
