Hitting 70,000 followers on Twitch should have been a momentous occasion for Korean streamer ‘HAchubby’, but it couldn’t have gone much worse after being trolled by her chat. 

The popular streamer has provided fans with a number of hilarious broadcasts throughout the course of 2019 already, including one time she started to panic after being pranked by a Minecraft friend. 

However, one of the most shocking moments to-date came on September 11 when she agreed to do something for her chat after reaching a landmark on the platform – to thank them for their support.

HAchubby, InstagramHAchubby often streams with her friends on Twitch, playing a variety of games.

Members of her online community, for one reason or another, wanted to see her stream the whole time wearing a bald cap and it’s fair to say that the whole thing didn’t go down too well – eventually. 

HAchubby started the stream out by wearing a t-shirt covered with the popular Pepe the Frog meme on it, dancing around with a pair of Deal With It glasses on her head. However, it quickly turned sour as she appeared to be embarrassed about the things she was doing. 

“I’m broken! My life, my good life is broken!” she yelled at the camera. “You happy? Twitch chat look at me. I am broken.” 

Even if she was annoyed about it all for a few moments, it looks like it was all worth it after all. The hilarious moment and viral clips that came from it has resulted in a further boost in her following as well. 

At the time of writing, HAchubby has managed to pull that total up to over 81,000 followers – representing around a 15% increase in her channel‘s popularity in the space of 24 hours. 

What she’ll do when she reaches her next milestone remains to be seen, but if it’s anything like this there will be tons of people watching for sure.

TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
