‘YouTuber’ is a real word now because the Oxford English Dictionary says so

The Oxford English Dictionary has given YouTubers some career validation.
The dictionary defines the term as “A frequent user of the video-sharing website YouTube, especially someone who produces and appears in videos on the site.”
The word dates back to 2006, and stems from “the proprietary name of the video-sharing website,” aka Google-owned video platform YouTube.
But perhaps the best part about the dictionary entry is the list of sample sentences.
“YouTuber Hugo took a selfie of himself every day from the age of 13 to the age of 19.”
