Destiny streamer Sean “GLADD” Gallagher has become the most-subbed individual channel on Twitch in February 2020, according to metrics tracking site

Previously, the most-subbed individual streamer on the platform was former Overwatch pro Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel, until GLADD moved ahead of his ranking on February 5.

Even though he’s currently the most-subbed individual channel with 32,443 subs (at the time of writing), the channel with the highest amount of subscriptions on the site is GamesDoneQuick with 36,579.

GLADD managed to pull ahead of xQc and Summit1G in February.

GamesDoneQuick is the top-subbed channel overall, probably in part because of the Awesome Games Done Quick charity event, which only just wrapped up on January 12, 2020.

GLADD’s subs seem to almost entirely be paid, according to TwitchTracker, in contrast to GDQ, where over half of the subs were the free ones included in Prime.

“You guys f*cking did it,” GLADD told fans on Twitter. “#1 most subbed individual Twitch channel, worldwide. Very watery-eyed right now.” 

“Thanks to all who’ve stuck around since day 1, and to those who just started tuning in,” he continued. “Life is all about the journey and it’s been quite a ride with YOU!”

Unlike followers, Twitch streamers’ subscriber counts aren’t directly available to the public, and many fans have to simply guess at the number of subscribers content creators have gained while on the platform.

Sites like TwitchTracker organize the Twitch’s top broadcasters by their subscriber count, splitting subs by type – and while their numbers do come with a certain margin of error, they have been fairly reliable, as seen when xQc made it to the top of the sub counts in October 2019.

According to TwitchTracker, all of GLADD’s 32,443 were paid (that means no Prime subs) and, interestingly enough, 21,890 of those paid subs were gifted ones.

Twitch allows users to purchase up to 100 subscriptions at once and gift them to other viewers on the same channel, which doesn’t make those subs less legitimate by any means – but is an interesting detail.

GLADD and his chat were obviously overjoyed about the accomplishment.

xQc was right behind GLADD with 30,865 subs, followed by Summit1G in 4th with 30,500 subs. Surprisingly enough, streaming star DrDisRespect was all the way down in 8th, with 23,459 subs.


Alexandra Botez responds to creepy Twitch viewer asking to see her feet

Twitch streamer and chess guru Alexandra Botez wasn’t going to put up with trolls asking to see her feet during a live stream.

During the broadcast, as Botez was challenging players in chess, a viewer decided to ask the streamer if they could see her feet – something that promoted a hilarious response from Alexandra.

“Sir, you’re not seeing… you know what,” the frustrated streamer began, before pausing with a smirk. “I’m going to show you what’s on my feet, and you’re going to stop asking.”

With that, the 25-year-old lifted up her shoe and showed it off in front of the camera.

Mess with the Botez, get the shoe.

“I’m wearing these clogs, okay? This is all you need to know. And if you would ask me that in person, I would turn into Romanian Botez,” she added.

Next, Alexandra pretended to smack the person with her clog while rambling on in Romanian.

“And I would hit you in the head with my shoe,” she warned. “And you wouldn’t see feet because your vision would be blurry.”

Amusingly, after that whole rant, the streamer went right back into challenging whoever she wanted to play next, as if the whole foot fiasco never even happened.

Fans have requested feet before

This isn’t the first time that Alexandra has been asked to show her feet, oddly enough. Earlier in 2020, a viewer donated $3 and asked the streamer to reveal her highly fetishized body part.

Instead of showing them off, however, she simply drew a foot on a piece of paper and held it up for the camera, which confused her two on-stream guests.

“Someone donated to show feet,” she explained, prompting some laughs in the chat.

While Botez has handled the foot remarks quite well thus far, the next time someone dares to ask the chess queen to slip off her shoes to expose her feet, they could be getting a clog to the skull.
