With the latest streaming giant Michael ‘shroud’ Grziek leaving Twitch for Mixer, everyone is wondering which big personality will jump ship next, and some cryptic tweets have sparked fan speculation that Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney could be next.

Shroud shook up the streaming world when the former CSGO pro announced he was leaving Twitch for their competitor Mixer on October 24, following in the footsteps of Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins who made the same deal three months prior.

Now all eyes are on the remaining top streamers on Twitch, as speculation rages as to who could be the next one to make the move to the Microsoft platform. After some cryptic tweets, fans think it could be Fortnite star Tfue.

Following shroud’s surprise announcement that he had joined Mixer, Tfue sent his fans into a frenzy when he asked who would be the next streamer to jump ship on his Twitter account on October 27. “Ninja Shroud now Goth! Who’s next?” he said.

The Twitch star’s tweet fueled speculation among his fan base as to whether it was a sign that he was willing to deal with Microsoft, or possibly even a tease that he would be the next one to join the streaming platform. Even Fortnite pro Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop joined in the speculation and replied “Tfue!”

Adding fuel to the fire, Mixer’s own Twitter account replied to the Twitch star, and posted a gif of the ‘thinking face’ emoji.

This only furthered the conspiracy theories and speculation that he might be in talks with Microsoft to join their streaming platform.

CouRage wasn’t the only prominent figure to speculate – fellow streaming giant Brett ‘dakotaz’ Hoffman also replied to the Twitter thread with a gif showing a man holding wads of cash up to his face in the shape of a phone. 

“HELLO? IS TFUE THERE WE GOTTA TALK,” the tweet said.

While there have been no official signs that Tfue is in talks with Microsoft to join their platform, the social media account for Mixer has not been shy to tease the idea, replying to streamers with cryptic tweets.

Only time will tell if Tfue will leave Twitch, but as of the time of writing this article, he is the most popular channel on the platform with over 7 million followers.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez broke records with her debut Twitch stream as she laughed and bumbled her way through Among Us and the internet couldn’t get enough. Now, she’s all set to do it once again with some massive names joining up for the big return.

It wasn’t the biggest individual stream Twitch has ever seen ⁠— that honor remains with Ninja and Drake ⁠— but Ocasio-Cortez, fondly nicknamed AOC, came awfully close when she went live on Oct. 28 for more than 439k eager viewers.

The huge stream, backed by AOC’s desire to “sell the vote” to gamers, scribed the US representative into Twitch’s history books. It also left the internet hungry for more ⁠— AOC’s bubbly personality and funny wit had endeared her to millions.

For weeks eager viewers were left pondering when she’d make her return. Now, we finally have a solid date locked in and even know some of the names she’ll be streaming with. Here’s everything you need to know about AOC’s upcoming return to Twitch.

The internet at large has been baying for AOC to hit that “go live” button again sooner rather than later. Now her electoral race is won and her sights can shift back over to Twitch.

Despite some earlier teases, it’s been just over a month since the first historic broadcast, but now we have a date for the next one. AOC will be going live on Twitch on Friday, November 27 at 4 PM PT | 7PM EST.

Last time, Ocasio-Cortez streamed mid-week, on a Tuesday and the spectacle ran for just a few hours. Expect a similar duration this time around given the late evening start time.

What will AOC play? League, Among Us, Fall Guys

AOC hasn’t yet branched out to anything other than some Among Us gameplay. It’s a casual experience that anyone can jump into, so it removes any busywork from her broadcasts.

Last time she paired up with fellow US rep Ilhan Omar, Pokimane, and more on InnerSloth’s smash-hit. It appears that she’ll be doing much the same this time around, but with a few fresh faces.

Canadian Member of Parliament Jagmeet Singh will be getting into the mix, as will popular Twitch streamers Hasan and Northernlion.

However, the New York politician could also try her hand at League of Legends on-stream down the line. Pokimane said she would “be here anytime [AOC] needed,” to which Ocasio-Cortez suggested LoL.

“League duo bot?! Except I haven’t played in months, I’m gonna be real bad,” AOC joked on Twitter in reply to Pokimane. “Maybe Among Us again, for a bit.”

A League of Legends stream certainly makes sense; Pokimane first made her name on LoL, and AOC is a self-confessed League lover, though she says she’s not played it “a whole lot.”

She must have played a bit at least, though, because on Nov. 14 ⁠— a month after revealing she was Bronze V ⁠— she shared on Instagram she had been promoted to Silver IV, one whole ranked tier higher. That’s some serious grinding!

The 31-year-old mainly plays Sona, Janna, Lux, and Morgana, and is “working on Lulu” to add to her champ pool; Pokimane will have to play ADC if they duo queue. Perhaps with her second stream now locked in, a special LoL broadcast could be right around the corner as well.

AOC's second Twitch stream could be another record-breaking broadcast.
