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.

Popular Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel lost it after achieving an incredible Minecraft speedrun time. The former Overwatch pro hilariously called out fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors, and challenged him to beat his record.

For many, xQc has become the face of Twitch over the last two years. The former Overwatch pro is one of the most followed channels on the platform, and consistently pulls in 30-40k viewers each time he goes live.

xQc challenges Forsen to beat his Minecraft speedrun time

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Minecraft continues to be one of the most popular games on Twitch. In 2020, streamers like xQc have been trying to beat the game in record time in front of viewers.

After months of previous attempts – some that ended in disaster – the stars finally aligned for Lengyel on October 13 when he managed to complete the title incredibly fast.

Using the Nether bed trick to slay the Ender Dragon quickly, the former Overwatch pro was able to take down the final boss and achieve a speedrun record of just 33 minutes. “Holy s**t!” he screamed as beast died.

Elated, the star exploded in celebration over his new time. “33! Beat that s**t!” He then hilariously called out Forsen who has also been speedrunning Minecraft. “Beat it, Forsen! Beat it! 33:49! Nearly sub-30!” he said, slamming his fists on the desk.

xQc challenged the fellow Twitch personality to attempt to beat his record. “Beat that, baby! Forget it. Forget variety, Forsen. It will take months to beat that s**t!  Forget the variety streams, dude.”

According to Lengyel, everything seemed to just click and fall into place during his latest Minecraft run. He was even able to achieve a “perfect” kill of the Ender Dragon using his strategy, which he had been practicing in the past month.

On October 14, Forsen responded to the challenge simply stating, “Alright. Alright. Let’s do it!” Only time will tell if the Swede will be able to match or beat xQc’s incredible 33-minute time, but the rivalry has been entertaining to say the least.
