Art streamer 39daph shared details on what she claims was a recent confrontation with Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys, which turned out to all be over a Twitter follow.

39daph has been continually growing in popularity on Twitch in recent months, in part due to her lack of fear when it comes to confrontation.

During a stream on November 17, 39daph said Pokimane had messaged her after she unfollowed the popular streamer on Twitter.

“I literally had her on mute, so then I was like ‘OK I’m just gonna unfollow,” 39daph said during her stream. “And then she asked me, and I was like ‘I don’t watch your stuff’, and she was like ‘oh, it’s about SlikeR?’ I’m like ‘No, I don’t watch your stuff.”

“She kept sending me the blushing smile emoji (?) and I was like, ‘this is weird as f**k.” the streamer continued. “Because I don’t think you’re making that same expression in real life, I think you are seething.”

Pokimane hasn’t publically responded to the accusations at the time of writing, but 39daph said she thought it was ridiculous that she was this upset about an unfollowing.

“It’s crazy that she has her head so far up her own ass that she thinks I unfollowed her because she unfollowed SlikeR,” 39daph continued. “Which SlikeR talked about on his stream, but in reality, I unfollowed her months ago because I don’t watch her stuff.”

New arch enemies, or just a misunderstanding?

For her part, 39daph didn’t leave the possibility of patching things up with pokimane over the Twitter drama off the table and explained she thought the two could actually be friends.

“Do I care if she’s mad? Not really, to be honest, I could see us being friends,” she said after discussing the confrontation. ”

Both streamers have a sizeable Twitch following, and Pokimane still has to respond to 39daph’s claims, so it will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Twitch star Sykkuno officially reveals he’s moving to Las Vegas after dropping hints

Twitch superstar ‘Sykkuno’ has seen an explosive rise to internet stardom in the past few months, and after dropping a few hints that he’s making major life changes, has officially revealed he’s moving house.

Sykkuno’s is a unique and surprising case in online fame; while he’s been making content since 2011, the influencer saw a huge rise in YouTube subscribers during the last few months of 2020, skyrocketing him from 400k subscribers to over 2 million.

This impressive growth has been applauded by fans and fellow streamers alike — and it makes sense, as the creator managed to score a jaw-dropping 1.6 subscribers in just four months’ time.

It seems that his newfound success is also kicking off a major life change for the streamer, as hinted at during a broadcast in early January.

Data from VideoAmigo shows that Sykkuno’s subscriber count on YouTube started rapidly growing from August.

The star teased that he would be moving out of California, where he previously lived with major streaming group OfflineTV before exiting the collective to pursue his own personal projects in November 2020 — right when his subscriber count began to climb.

“I will say this, though, guys — I’m actually moving soon,” he said during a January 8 broadcast. “I don’t know if I should say where. But you guys will know, and it’ll happen within a month, probably. I will say this, guys… there’s a decent chance I won’t be in California anymore.”

It seems that Sykkuno’s hint was a bit more on-the-nose than fans expected, although he isn’t moving too far away; on January 15, the streamer revealed that he is moving to Las Vegas, home to several other major content creators.

However, it looks like Sykkuno’s streams will be on the back burner until he’s all settled in — but it doesn’t seem that his fanbase is too worried about that particular drawback.

“Moving to Las Vegas!” he tweeted. “I’ll be back on streams soon!”

Sykkuno’s post has been met with hilarious reactions from a slew of other top streamers, with the likes of Mizkif replying with a video of himself merely saying, “Bye.”

This move to Vegas marks another in a major series of life changes for one of the net’s biggest stars as he continues on his high rise to fame.
