Popular YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and ex-Twitch streamer Corinna Kopf clashed on December 27, over the latter’s move to Facebook Gaming. 

Corinna Kopf announced her move to Facebook Gaming on December 27, following a controversial ban from her previous streaming platform, Twitch. She was banned for a year old clip, leading to confusion and frustration on the 24-year-old’s behalf. 

Kopf explained her decision, stating that she wanted to move to a platform she thought could better empower her and give her followers a better viewing experience. However, in the hours after the announcement was made, Kopf clashed with Keem over the origins of their success.

Instagram: Corinna KopfKopf has over 1.6 million YouTube subscribers.

In response to Kopf’s original announcement tweet, Keem responded: “Kinda a gold dig, but I love a good hustle. 50% congrats.”

Keem’s suggestion that Kopf had only moved to Facebook for the money was shared by a few other Twitter users. It is the same kind of accusation faced by Shroud, Ninja and CouRage, following their respective moves away from Twitch. 

However, Keem’s comment didn’t go down too well with the 24-year-old, who instantly hit back. 

“C’mon Keem,” she replied. “We have so much in common! We both have careers because of other people”. 

Kopf’s tweet is both self-deprecating and scathing, suggesting Keem has made a career for himself by talking about other people on his YouTube news show, DramaAlert. 

As part of David Dobrik’s ‘Vlog Squad’, Kopf became a well-known figure on YouTube. Further to this, her relationship with Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney saw her establish a significant following on her own Twitch channels. Once again, Keem did not take well to Kopf’s comments. 

It appears that Keem is referring to the relationship Kopf had with Tfue, which ended back in the summer before the pair reunited. Following Keem’s final tweet, Kopf has not issued a response. 

Despite Keem’s backhanded compliments and the pair’s subsequent clashes, many were quick to congratulate Kopf over the move to Facebook. It seems a number of fans are excited about the prospect of a new home for the talented streamer.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
