Way back in February, we reported on the girl who was set a target of 15,000 retweets in order to take TSM’s Myth on a prom date – and yesterday that prom day came.

The girl, Tori Pareno is also a regular streamer herself, and obviously inspired by Myth’s rise to become of the most popular Fortnite streamer, took her shot.

With a little help from the Fortnite community of Twitter, Pareno eventually hit the target of 15,000 retweets, now sitting at around 17,000.

And Myth was true to his word, with his move to the Team SoloMid Fortnite team house in California conveniently matching up with the date of the prom.

Myth of course is recruited to TSM’s professional Fortnite roster, and the team, which also features other top streamers Daequan and Hamlinz, now live, stream and make videos together in the new house.

They will of course be competing in upcoming tournaments, but as of right now Fortnite esports is yet to be fully established.

Myth, real name Ali Kabbani, clearly enjoyed himself at the prom date, likely the star of the show.

So there you have it, the power of Twitter and the Fortnite community pulled off the challenge made famous chicken nugget man (who you may remember managed over 3 million retweets for a year’s supply of chicken nuggets).

We’re not sure if this is where the relationship ends for Myth and Tori, but at least Tori got the special prom she was hoping for, certainly one to remember, and it will help her grow her own Twitch channel too.

Popular drama page TikTok Room delighted its 1.8 million followers this week when, on November 25, they announced on their Instagram that they would be hosting their very own awards show!

The post also announced that voting would be on Friday 27 November, with the awards then streaming tonight on Saturday 28 November.

Details surrounding what the award categories were was initially vague, with the account teasing more information throughout the week before opening the polls on Friday for fans to vote for some of their favorite TikTokers in various categories.

Among other famous faces like Skai Jackson, Nessa Barrett, and Jacob Sartorius, Sway House star Bryce Hall endorsed the awards in a video, joking that he was probably nominated in the “most problematic” category, while Charli D’Amelio, who recently reached 100k followers on the TikTok, told her fans that “there is a special award show on Sunday” and encouraged them all to vote.

Although some fans found that there was difficulty submitting their votes – with TikTok Room explaining in an Instagram post that this was due to heavy traffic on the form- by the time the polls were closed, TikTok Room announced that over 500,000 votes were cast after teasing fans earlier that day with just how close some of the categories were.
