Linus Sebastian, the figure behind the wildly popular Linus Tech Tips, had a recent Twitch stream hilariously hijacked by his daughter, who was keen to ask about a squirrel found in their house. 

Sebastian is best known for creating and regularly appearing on a whopping five YouTube channels, including the incredibly popular Linus Tech Tips. He regularly appears to offer his ten million subscribers tips relating to all things technology – PCs, monitors, and everything in between.

However, while live streaming via Twitch on April 23, he had his broadcast amazingly hijacked by his young daughter, who was inquiring about a dead squirrel that was in their house.

Linus Tech Tips has nearly 20 million subs across his YT channels.

“I think that’s probably the route I’m gonna go,” he said, before being interrupted. “Yes, my darling what I can do for you?”

His daughter then proceeded to ask awkward questions about a dead squirrel that was in their family home, in a truly adorable – and bizarre – Twitch moment.

“Erm, well there’s a dead squirrel in the crawl-space in our house,” Linus told her. “Why? Well because it crawled in there and died. I honestly don’t know how it died, maybe it just lost the will to live… maybe it died of old age, or maybe it got in a fight with a porcupine and it lost.”

The tech wizard’s daughter seemed to accept this explanation, but then appeared to grow concerned with the state of the porcupine that may have been involved.

“That’s true,” Linus finished. “But the porcupine if it won, well it’s not dead so it could have left, right? She’s processing that one.”

The clip is truly adorable, as Linus struggled to explain the harsh realities of nature to his young daughter. It’s certainly not what the YouTube star’s audience tuned in for, but many enjoyed the cute family moment nonetheless.


Twitter erupts as Tommyinnit leaks Addison Rae in Dream SMP Minecraft server

Worlds collide and Twitter explodes as Twitch streamer Tommyinnit surprisingly leaked that TikTok superstar Addison Rae is in the Dream SMP (survival multiplayer) Minecraft Discord server.

Founded by the Dream Team, the private, whitelisted Dream SMP Minecraft server is a world of roleplay, drama and, above all else, entertainment. Familiar with their fair share of intriguing characters, fans are now pushing the limits of curiosity and excitement at the possibility that a mainstream, TikTok icon could be stepping into the Minecraft players, Twitch streamers and YouTubers’ arena.

Dream, the faceless persona behind the server, has a hefty 16 million subscribers on YouTube. Tommyinnit, the teenage Englishman and one of the world’s fastest-growing streamers, has 3 million followers on Twitch. Rae, who jumped into fame for clean dance moves, has 34 million followers on Instagram and 75 million on TikTok.

During a Twitch stream, Tommyinnit couldn’t contain himself as he noticed Rae in the Dream SMP’s Discord general channel. Expressing serious surprise and confusion, the streamer discussed her presence and quickly lit social media ablaze as fans debate what said presence could entail.

While gaming once felt like a niche domain, internet celebs like Rae and James Charles, or even US politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have all dabbled in the streaming world at the height of Among Us popularity. 

Unfortunately, Rae’s specific crossover experience in the Twitch streaming world was less than ideal as she encountered serious backlash for her Among Us session with Pokimane, Corpse Husband and, in what could now be considered a sneak peek, Dream.

Undeterred by that hate, it appears that Rae’s interest in gaming is unfazed. And, to the delight of those who prefer positive energy over hate, the Dream SMP fans seem to be taking this leak in a much funnier, confusedly entertained light than Twitch chat had.

It remains unclear whether or not Rae will take an actual role within the Dream SMP or if she was simply testing the water by joining the Discord. When Tommyinnit later tried inviting the TikTok superstar to voice chat, she ignored the request, prompting him to jokingly call her a “d**khead.”

With this leaked quasi-involvement already thrusting social media into a frenzied state, one can only imagine the potential for content if “Draem SMP” becomes a reality.
