Popular Twitch streamer Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan revealed his brief ban on May 1 was related to Alinity. The OfflineTV personality explained how the star’s wardrobe malfunction got him temporarily suspended.

The streamer’s second Twitch account ‘Fedmyster2’ received a ban on May 1, though the suspension was quickly lifted after the content creator appealed the punishment.

The OfflineTV producer opened up about the initial three-day suspension on social media, and explained to his followers how it was actually tied to Alinity’s slip-up during her April 24 broadcast.

Fedmyster’s temporary Twitch ban

The streamer’s second account was issued a ban on May 1st. Not long after, the personality uploaded a message to his Twitter account to explain to his followers why he had received the infraction.

“Just a heads up, it appears I’ve been banned on FEDMYSTER2 for 3 days for “sharing content featuring n*dity.” He then revealed it was actually related to Alinity.

“Someone posted Alinity’s n**ple on twitter when I had it open. It was on for less than a second but it is what it is. Going to explore every option,” he tweeted.

Thankfully for the streamer, the suspension was quickly lifted on the same day upon appeal. Fedmyster updated the situation on Twitter, stating, “Twitch has gone ahead and unbanned me” with a heart emoji.

The OfflineTV streamer updated followers that he had been unbanned.

Alinity kicked off a storm of controversy on April 24 when she had a wardrobe malfunction on camera. The streamer was later issued a 24-hour suspension on April 26.

Despite Fed’s ban only lasting two hours and 25 min, viewers were confused as to how his account could receive a lengthier ban than Alinity. User ‘n0tAndy’ exclaimed, “Not sure how his suspension can be longer than the person who actually broke TOS lol.”

Twitch viewers were initially baffled by Fed receiving a longer ban than Alinity.

Despite the initial uproar, the streaming platform moved quickly to resolve the situation. Fedmyster’s account was re-instated in record time, as the Amazon owned-company granted his appeal.

While the OfflineTV creator is allowed to stream again, this is the perfect example of how complex bans can sometimes become. Even something shown in the background can trigger a suspension.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
