Popular Twitch streamer Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos has revealed why he is hoping to drive his viewership down in order to “rebuild” it from scratch.

Greekgodx is one of the most popular British streamers on Twitch, with an audience of 1.1 million followers, and recently moved to the United States in order to complete his switch to stream under the Team Solo Mid banner.

However, during his April 26 livestream, Greek stated that he is actively trying to drive his viewership down in order to shake toxic individuals who “follow” him around the internet.

Greek’s TSM announcement video poked fun at American culture.

“I’d rather just start from zero and rebuild my community and get rid of all the toxic frogs dude honestly,” he said. “They’ll still be obsessed with me, that’s the only problem. They’ll still like dislike videos, dislike any post because deep down they love me, but they love to hate me… I’m down to kill my channel and rebuild it.”

He went on to explain that these efforts to rid his channel of toxicity are the reason he’s been playing so much CoD: Warzone of late.

Greek’s viewers have been called out as toxic in the past, with streamer Erobb suggesting it affects the way in which Greek behaves. It seems like the Brit has reached a similar conclusion, and is doing his best to rid his channel of negativity.

“Give me 2,000 viewers buddy, I don’t give a f**k,” the TSM streamer continued. “As long as I’ve just got a nice community, I just wanna enjoy my experience streaming. Is that too much to ask?”

Greek finished by reflecting some of the hate and “victim” accusations he may get as a result of making the change, but brushed them off as the kind of complaints he is trying to get away from.

It is the latest change in a number of adjustments Greek is making to try and make his Twitch environment more positive. He recently shared details of an auto-ban system he and a few other streamers are trying to implement, in order to remove abusive and hateful viewers.

YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is once again putting his wealth to great use by letting fans literally send pictures and videos to the moon after buying space on a NASA rover.

On January 24, the YouTube star announced that fans can start sending him their content in the form of photos or videos, and he will put them on an official NASA rover. The only catch is that it costs $10 to do so and videos need to be just one second long.

“Later this year NASA is putting a rover on the moon and I managed to buy storage space on it. I thought it’d be fun to let you guys put whatever you want on the moon,” MrBeast said in a follow-up to his announcement tweet.

In a video detailing the new project on his website, Donaldson explains how he thought it would be cool to create the world’s first digital time capsule.

“Every single one of you that puts something on the moon will get a certificate of authenticity,” he elaborated. “So, for decades to come you can prove to people that you literally put something on the moon.”

According to MrBeast, the possibilities are endless (as long as it’s legal) with fans being able to put a picture of their mom, dog, Elon Musk, or the three together.

“This is your first and possibly only chance to ever put a photo or video on the moon,” he added. “I genuinely need your help to help preserve humanity.”

How to enter

Basically, how it works is really straight forward. All fans have to do is follow these instructions.

First, head on over to MrBeast’s site and select which bundle you want, as some more expensive options come with a T-shirt or hoodie.

Next, pay to add partake in the experience and select what video or photo you want to go to the moon and upload it to MrBeast’s site.

Making it to the moon has never been easier.

That’s it, you’re done. MrBeast’s team will load the content into a “moon-ready” harddrive and NASA will send the hard drive to the moon.

If you know anyone who is really interested in space, this could be a really cool surprise for them. Go ahead and reach for the stars.
