Popular Twitch streamer HAchubby was stunned when she met a Twitch fan in one of her IRL streams, only for him to reveal himself as her “number one VIP” and a known member of her community.

HAchubby is a streamer who has shot up in popularity for her IRL streams, with a steadily growing fanbase over 230,000 followers on Twitch. She is Korean, but films most of her content in English as she’s documenting her learning process.

The streamer is constantly finding herself in random and hilarious situations, and her entertaining reactions make her followers love her even more.

Earlier in October, she had a beautiful piano solo in a music store interrupted when “U Guessed It” by OG Maco started blasting through the speakers with perfect timing, leaving HAchubby in stitches. This is just a standard day on her stream at this point.

The Korean has experienced a popularity boom over the last year.

She has several super loyal fans who make frequent appearances online whenever she streams, but the last thing she expected was for one of her biggest fans to find her in real life, while she was streaming no less.

As a fan walked up to her while she was streaming in Germany, she greeted him warmly with “hello hello! What’s your name.” The fan took a short pause before he replied “I am BFG.”

She paused for a moment, then laughed in disbelief. “What? Sorry? Sorry?” she repeated, completely baffled by the unexpected meeting.

He even gets out his phone to show her his account, and sure enough, it was really him, sending the chat into a frenzy. People even started sending gifts to greet the known community member.

HAchubby introduces him to those who don’t as her “number one VIP” and fans were so excited that someone even sent over $100 via the stream.

The pair seemed to have a great time together judging by their conversations where they gushed about each other, along with their hilarious dancing.

Fans certainly seemed to be loving the union between creator and fan, as the clip of the unexpected meeting is just another viral moment on her stream.

Small Warzone streamer gets 3 million Twitch followers overnight

A Warzone streamer has been thrust into the top 30 of most followed Twitch streamers after receiving a huge, and unusual, boost in one go. 

Building up a following and community on Twitch can, obviously, be a slog if you’re starting from scratch. Streamers can stream for weeks and months on end without even having their talents recognized and blow up in popularity like others. 

Some others can take shortcuts, be it because they have a following on another platform, or because they decide to inflate it with fake accounts. 

This has happened before, with casino accounts smashing records in a bid to advertise their platform, while smaller streamers have been hit with huge boosts in an attempt to troll them for one reason or another.

NeonSniperPanda has become the fastest growing streamer for October.

Warzone streamer NeonSniperPanda has become the newest content creator to be struck by these boosts, as his channel has rocketed into the top 30 of most-followed Twitch streamers. 

The streamer, who had previously built up a modest following of nearly 10,500, received the unusual boost in early October, jumping up to over 3.3 million followers. 

As previously mentioned, this figure puts him up there with some of Twitch’s biggest names like Fortnite World Cup champion Bugha and Spanish content creator Ibai, though, NeonSniperPanda hasn’t inflated the figures himself.

NeonSniperPanda jumped up over 3.3 million followers on Twitch.

The Warzone streamer has called on Twitch a number of times to help him out, noting that he’d been botted out of the blue and given the ridiculous amount of followers.

“Yo quick reminder, I was follow botted 3.3 million and there’s no way to delete them @TwitchSupport @Twitch can you help me out bro bro,” he tweeted. 

Previously, the aileybeanssa channel had been hit with a similar botting, as they rose up to have over 4.64 million Twitch followers in September. However, those figures have since been removed. 

Given that Twitch has been able to scrub channels of botted followers, they should be able to do the same for NeonSniperPanda, but it remains to be seen as and when they might do so.
