Esports commentator and streamer Sean “Day[9]” Plott celebrated a major milestone with Twitch viewers as he marked a decade of streaming.

Day[9] is well known to fans of StarCraft and DOTA 2 esports fans for his work as a commentator at various esports events including DOTA’s The International 2017.

During a stream on October 22 Day[9] started off happily greeted viewers by celebrating the 10-year mark.

“Today is the 10-year anniversary of Day[9]tv, 10 years!” he exclaimed. “It’s not nine years, so it’s not the best for branding – but 10 years, holy sh*t that went fast.”

“10 years ago today, for any of you who don’t know, was the very first broadcast I ever did it was Day[9]daily,” he explained.

Day[9] was a high-level Zerg player in StarCraft: Brood War, but he said during school he was unable to keep his skills as high as they needed to be to compete at the top.

“But you know I obviously loved watching Brood War, loved being engaged with and following the scene,” he recalled. “So I was like – ‘I know, I am just going to broadcast an analysis,” – and this was actually two years before Twitch even existed.”

The streamer said he started on a little-known livestreaming site, evidence of which can be found in the below YouTube video from Day[9]’s channel.

Day[9]daily’s first episode (even though in the video he says “second episode”) was a look at a Brood War match between Lee “Flash” Young Ho and Jo “hero” Il Jang.

What’s ahead for Day[9]?

The streamer said on Twitter that even after close to 200 shows a year he was looking forward to the next 10 years of broadcasting.

Day[9] also worked closely with Twitch while they were developing their subscriber program, which prompted Twitch’s Marcus “djWHEAT” Graham to call him “A legend”.

Day9’s Daily’s were a huge part of the Starcraft esports scene at it’s height and he was the first ever Twitch streamer to have paid subscribers to his channel.

That, and he was one of the first to figure out people enjoyed watching other people talk about video games live on the internet.

Bryce Hall and Addison Rae just announced that they’re officially back together again, though fellow TikTok star Griffin Johnson has explained why he wasn’t surprised at all.

After a full year of on again off again social media teasers, ‘Braddison’ is finally official. Despite months of dodging rumors and claiming they were just friends, the two TikTok celebs officially confirmed their relationship on November 30.

 “He asked me out on October 13 to be his girlfriend,” Rae explained in a November 30 YouTube video. “This is our second time dating.”

While the confirmation set the internet ablaze, with fans around the world overjoyed at the news, one TikTok star wasn’t all too shocked.

“I mean… are we surprised?” Johnson said in an interview with The Hollywood Fix on the same day. “I’m not surprised,” he said before laughing in light of the announcement. Obviously one of Hall’s closest friends, he’s sure to have known the good news for quite some time now.

After taking things slow throughout all of 2020, it came as no surprise to Johnson that the duo got back together.

The newly reformed TikTok couple kept things under wraps at first. A few months went by as they got the relationship going for the second time before making it public. “Well, it’s the internet,” Johnson said, implying the two kept things under wraps to avoid new levels of attention.

While Johnson himself isn’t involved with a significant other just yet, he joked off the lovey-dovey nature of his friend’s relationship. “He’s such a simp,” he said while laughing about a recent post from Hall.

Clowning their announcement one last time, he brought up a post from the very start of the year. Hall may have kissed Rae over New Years’, but “it’s weird because Bryce kissed me first,” Johnson joked.

“Addison didn’t know about that.”
