Cutest dog on Twitch goes viral after hijacking stream to be petted

A Twitch streamer’s dog managed to draw the spotlight on itself by appearing on the broadcast and immediately taking over with its incessant, yet adorable, demands to be petted. 

When it comes to streaming with others, streamers usually just have to worry about someone else in their game trying to stream snipe, keep a watchful eye over Twitch chat, and be careful that they don’t run into any strange situations if they’re out and about in public.

However, when you add animals into the mix, it might be a little hard to have a certain level of control over them. That’s the lesson that Twitch streamer Immortal discovered as his pet made itself the center of attention and completely took over his broadcast. 

Twitch: ImmortalImmortal can usually be found showing his dog on stream.

While his dog may appear on stream every now and again, Immortal pulled up another chair and allowed Arthas to sit next to him during his December 26 stream.

As the streamer sat and chatted with his viewers, he gave his dog a good petting before stopping and proclaiming “that’s enough for the day.” Yet, his pet wasn’t pleased with that at all. With seconds, Arthas started tapping on the streamer’s hand – seemingly asking him to carry on with the petting session.

“Bro, I’m telling you, I’m not going to bring you to the webcam anymore – you’ve been doing this every day now on purpose because you became famous!” Immortal told his dog, who immediately barked at him for another stroke. 

The adorable dog, though, won out and got its wish of another round of petting as the streamer gave in and immediately rubbed its chest. 

Of course, with a dog being involved it didn’t exactly take all that long for the clip to go viral and increase Arthas’ fame status either further. Who knows, it might not be all that long before the dog has its own dedicated camera on-stream.


Is Dixie D’Amelio performing at the Grammys? Twitter reignites wild nominee rumor

Twitter has reignited the wild rumors that Dixie D’Amelio could be performing at the Grammys, and might even win an award. However, that isn’t the case, and here’s why.

A few of the biggest social media stars will, ultimately, crossover into the mainstream and appear on TV, get roles in movies, and some will even go into music.

With the rise of TikTok, there have been a few creators who’ve done all three – with the biggest of which being the D’Amelio’s, Charli, and Dixie. The former appeared in a Super Bowl commercial while Dixie has dropped a few songs, and even had features from One Direction’s Liam Payne.

Now, with awards season on the horizon, Twitter has reignited a rumor about her potentially being up for a Grammy and even performing at the annual show. However, that’s not likely to be the case.

Will Dixie D’Amelio sing at the Grammys?

Back in late December, Dixie responded to a wild set of rumors that she, alongside controversial rapper 6ix9ine, would be opening the Grammys with a performance of one of her songs.

“LMAOOO STOP,” she tweeted, on her now-deleted account. “I’m being set up at this point oh my god,” Dixie added in a follow-up post, before joking that a few fans had been a bit too gullible in eating up the rumor.

Ultimately, to perform at the show, you have to be nominated and Dixie hasn’t made the cut. So, despite Twitter bring the rumor back up, we’ll see probably see someone like Dua Lipa, or Coldplay, or even Beyonce strut their stuff instead.

Is Dixie D’Amelio nominated for a Grammy?

As above, no, Dixie has not been nominated for a Grammy for either of her songs that would be eligible – One Whole Day or Naughty List.

Even though it’s gotten some incredible buzz, her song Roommates is not eligible for this year’s Grammys show because it was released way after the cutoff date for voting. Maybe next year, though?

So, if you’re expecting to see Dixie at the Grammys, the only hope you’ve got is if she’s there as part of the crowd or on the red carpet. Someone might even use TikTok dances in their performance and slip one of her videos in, who knows.

However, she won’t be performing any of her own songs, so, sorry to disappoint anyone who may have been expecting it.
