Controversial Twitch streamer ‘Alinity Divine’ is no stranger to scandal, having shown ample content during her past broadcasts – but a July 19 incident is stirring up outrage across the internet after she chucked her pet cat over her head, and one FaZe member isn’t pleased with the “catastrophe” one bit.

FaZe co-owner and content creator Nordan ‘FaZe Rain’ Shat uploaded a video discussing the incident on July 20, after noticing that Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem had Tweeted about the scandal.

Rain’s video, titled ‘TWITCH, PLEASE BAN HER’ slammed Alinity for throwing her pet over her head, as the animal seemed to have gotten in her way during a game of Apex Legends.

“Are you f*cking serious?” Rain challenged. “Over a video game? You’re gonna throw your cat behind your head? You’re just a dumb b*tch. Hopefully she doesn’t do that again.”

That wasn’t the end of Rain’s rant, by far: the YouTuber went on to criticize Alinity for feeding her cat Vodka in a previous stream, explaining that her actions were made all the more hurtful by the fact that his own cat had recently passed away.

“She’s a stupid b*tch, which is true – you are a stupid b*tch,” he continued. “…I just lost my cat, and it’s like, you’re treating your cat like sh*t when there’s a thousand people out there who wish they could have their cat.”

Alinity isn’t coming under fire from just FaZe Rain, by far: the streamer has been met with widespread criticism from a slew of top personalities, with the likes of Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys speaking out on the matter, calling Alinity’s actions “messed up.”

“…That’s messed up!” Anys said of the debacle. “Especially because you can’t see what’s around her. Like if I picked Mimi up, and I tossed her to the side here, she would land on my bed.”

Even the likes of animal rights organization PETA have voiced their opinion on the issue, pleading with Twitch to investigate the issue and remove Alinity from the platform, altogether.

Alinity has since spoken out on the scandal via Twitter, calling her cat-tossing catastrophe a “lapse in judgement” and claiming that she will continue to “improve” herself.

Alinity has yet to receive a ban from Twitch as of the publication of this article.

With 330 monthly active users and 145 million users daily, Twitter is one of the most popular social media apps out there. Whether you’re a casual user, business or even the US President, nobody can resist the allure of sharing snapshots of our thoughts within 260 characters.

There are many ways to show your personality through your Twitter account. Whether it be through a funny bio, pinned Tweet, interesting profile/cover photo or unique Twitter name, there are plenty of ways that you can make your Twitter account feel more like you.

However, one limitation that a lot of Twitter users note is the lack of fonts available. A lot of users find themselves stuck with Helvetica Neue, or even Arial if they’re really lucky.

The easiest way to get custom fonts on Twitter is through third party websites.

While there is no quick fix within the app to use special fonts on Twitter, it is possible to use special fonts through the use of third-party websites or apps.

What websites are best for using special fonts on Twitter?

As with any third-party website, you should always be careful that the website you’re visiting is safe and isn’t full of malware and other potential risks to your device. Be wary of websites with a lot of pop-ups and redirects.

No third-party website is completely risk-free, but here are some of the most popular ones used by Twitter users to get access to special fonts:

  • LingoJam
  • FontsforTwitter
  • Fontvilla

How to use special fonts on Twitter

While individual third-party font websites vary slightly from one another, they all essentially work the same.

However, for this tutorial, we will specifically focus on LingoJam.

A lot of these third party websites, like LingoJam, can be used on smartphones as well as desktops.
  1. Type the text you want to snazz up into LingoJam’s Fancy Text Generator, specifically in the box on the left-hand side that says ‘normal text goes here’.
  2. On the right hand side of the screen, you should see a box that displays your Tweet in a variety of different fonts. Scroll through this box to find the font you like the best.
  3. Highlight your Tweet in it’s chosen font, and then either click Ctrl/Command + C or simply right-click the text and select ‘copy’.
  4. Open Twitter and log into your account.
  5. Paste the text wherever you want to put it: this can be in your Bio – which you can access by clicking on the ‘Profile’ icon on the left-hand side, clicking the ‘Edit Profile’ button, and then pasting the text into the box that says ‘Bio’ before pressing the ‘Save’ button – or as a Tweet, wherein you can simply paste the text into the ‘What’s happening?’ box on Twitter before pressing the ‘Tweet’ button.

So, there you have it. Now you can give your Tweets that extra edge and be the envy of all your friends!
