Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos has surpassed a massive milestone on his return to Twitch this week, and he’s let his fans in on a few secret plans as the streamer looks to kick off 2020 with a bang.

Greekgodx is back to his regularly scheduled programming since returning to America. He was only sporadically streaming while he was waiting on his visa to get approved, doing guest appearances on Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys’ stream, Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo’s, and more.

The streamer has gone live on Twitch every day since getting back into the states four days ago, hanging out in Texas with plenty of other personalities in real life, not just over Discord.

It’s been a momentous occasion for him, not only because he’s back in the country doing what he loves, but he’s ticked off some major Twitch milestones. Greek broke through the one million follower mark on January 28, stating he was eternally grateful for the support.

“Thank you so much for all the love and all the support through the years,” he said. “I didn’t I’d ever be a one million Andy but we finally made it.

“If it wasn’t for the OfflineTV chat, Konzn promoting my channel — thank you all. Give yourselves a massive love heart because if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be where I am today so I really appreciate it.”

Greek has also vowed that 2020 will be his best year of streaming yet, and that he’s hoping to continue sharing his life with his fans for years to come.

“Hopefully in return I can give you some good content for many more years to come, and hopefully we can enjoy the ride man,” he pledged. “I’m finally enjoying streaming a bit more, I’m finally enjoying living a bit more. I feel healthy thanks to you guys motivating me and finally it’s coming together.

As for what he’s cooking up, he wants to give everything a try, from gaming to skits and IRL streams.

“Hopefully this year we can do some fun skits, some cool vlogs, some cool Twitch streams — we’re in America, the possibilities are endless baby. Boys, I’m going to play some games like Rust, we’re going to be playing games and doing IRL streams, we’re gonna switch it up.”

Greek has got plenty planned for 2020, so strap in.

The British-born streamer also shared with fans that a “huge announcement” is on the way, with a “whole filming crew planned.” While he didn’t let much more loose than that, he described it as “life-changing.”

Lando Norris forced to end Twitch stream by ‘angry’ F1 officials

Lando Norris might be a big-time Formula 1 driver, but in his spare time he loves throwing up the stream and talking to fans on Twitch — unfortunately, it seems the F1 officials don’t love it quite the same. 

In recent months, we’ve seen Lando grow his Twitch stream by playing Warzone with other top creators, mingling with the pros and putting in some genuinely great gameplay.

As well as that, he often likes to take his stream with him on race weekends, doing IRL broadcasts during his down time to speak with his fans and keep the content going.

With free practice during this weekend’s Eifel Grand Prix cancelled due to the weather conditions, Lando decided to throw up the stream with teammate Carlos Sainz and have a laugh — but it was cut short by team members who told him he had to turn the stream off.

Lando and his teammate Carlos thought a Twitch stream might help pass the time.

Just eight minutes into the broadcast, with Norris and Sainz having little else to do, someone comes into their room and lets the two know that “F1 are getting a bit unhappy” with the stream being up, much to the bemusement of the two racers.

“What?!” Lando asked, confused, before requesting to know specifically what was said. Carlos, meanwhile, is slightly less confrontational and simply suggests they goodbye to their fans before waving off with an “adios.”

Norris looks completely confused as to why F1 would be upset at the two of them streaming, probably because they didn’t have to practice anyway, so seems reluctant, but eventually says goodbye a couple of minutes later.

Of course, there’s no real way of knowing why F1 were getting unhappy with the McLaren drivers unless they come out with a specific statement regarding their concerns, but that’s unlikely to happen, especially during such a big race weekend.

However, someone in the background of the stream does go on to mention something regarding “broadcast rights,” so that may be the root of the trouble.

Lando and Carlos are currently 4th and 11th respectively in the F1 Drivers’ standings, while McLaren are third in the Constructors standings.
