Popular British Twitch streamer Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos has shared his conspiracy theory about how he believes fellow streamer Alinity Divine avoids Twitch bans.  

Coming towards the end of a nine hour stream, Antonatos’ attention was drawn to the recent controversy surrounding Alinity, involving her inadvertently taking a provocative photo of herself in the middle of a stream.

Greekgodx was perplexed by her ability to avoid a ban, despite numerous close calls (to say the least) with Twitch’s guidelines on inappropriate content, saying: “I don’t understand why she never gets banned.”

Greekgodx/TwitchGreekgodx is a popular personality on Twitch.

This follows previous controversies that have emerged from Alinity’s stream, most notably in January when she accidentally shared a ‘dick pic’ on stream after opening her Discord channel.

Antonatos went on to jokingly share his conspiracy theory that, “She’s probably the CEO [of Twitch],” he quipped. “She’s probably, like, had a thing with the CEO.”

He then moved away from his amusing theory and vented his frustrations with what he perceives to be double standards in the streaming industry: “She’s done un-countable things,” he proclaimed. “If I were to do that, I’d get fucking banned. If I was to just get my fucking ass, and take a picture, of my asshole. Dude, I don’t understand.”

He finished his rant strongly, arguing that from now on Alinity should just “play the fucking game dude. Like, dude, play the fucking game.” 

While his conspiracy theory is clearly not to be taken seriously, his comments on the ‘double standards’ of Twitch remains a hot topic, and one that many will agree with him on.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
