As a Twitch streamer who’s become an internet sensation, Neekolul has drawn inevitable comparisons to others on the platform, namely Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys.

Neeko has been one of the biggest names in the online content creation/influencer world since her ‘Ok Boomer’ TikTok went viral, amassing over 23.2 million views on Twitter.

That’s directly translated into success on Twitch, with her average viewership going from around 50 to over 1,500, and she’s now close to reaching the 100,000 follower mark.

Neeko’s rise on the platform has apparently led to “a lot” of people comparing her to Pokimane, who, of course, is the biggest female streamer by far, boasting over four million followers.

However, while that’s probably flattering to hear, she actually doesn’t consider herself similar to the superstar, even going as far as to call herself “anti-Poki.”

“I get a lot of people comparing me to Poki, but I’m going to be honest with you – if I were to be Poki, I’d be literally anti-Poki,” she explained. “I’m the complete opposite of Poki. I’m literally anti-Poki, I’m the complete opposite.”

While she didn’t elaborate further about what makes her the opposite of Pokimane, Neeko made it clear that she doesn’t believe her qualities are similar to the Moroccan Canadian, instead that she would be totally different if she ever found herself that high up the Twitch totem pole.

Following that, the viral TikTok star was then asked about who her favorite streamer is. Turns out, it’s Dmitri ‘Greedgodx‘ Antonatos, the English creator who boasts over a million followers on the platform.

“My favorite streamer is Greekgod,” she revealed. “I love Greekgod, he’s really cool.”

It might not be long until she’s gained enough prominence for people to start comparing other streamers to her, especially with how her popularity seems to be increasing every day.

With how much everyone’s become immersed with this whole TikTok wave, Neeko’s brand and exposure are only going to keep expanding, and that should continue feeding directly into her growth on Twitch.

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.
