A youtuber is a professional who makes a living by making videos on Youtube using the platform monetization system for profit .
They are people too who record videos and upload them , some of these Youtube videos are the most visited in the whole world.
People normally upload videos in order to win money and some of them just for having a laugh.

The most famous youtubers in Spain are: ElRubiusOMG, AuronPlay, Wismichu, Willyrex, Mangelrogel.
My favourite youtuber in Spain is DjMaRiiO .

In the real story Esmeralda died and the Hunchback of Notre Dame too.Three people liked Esmeralda but only one , the weakest of all really loved her.
I really prefer the film of Walt Disney because the real book is very sad , but it is true that the real story is the original because the story of Disney is just an interpretation of Hugo´s book.
In the book Esmeralda is the main character. She helps him, when she is going to die, he saves her because he catches her and carries her to the church of Notre Dame. In the church the soldiers can´t enter and take her. But they finally enter and kill Esmeralda.The story finishes when Quasimodo expires next to the tomb of Esmeralda.
