Pokimane to take ‘mental health’ break from streaming and social media

Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys published a message to Twitter on August 5, revealing that she will be taking a month-long break from streaming after quarantine and overwork have burned her out.

Anys is one of Twitch’s most popular broadcasters, boasting over five million followers on the platform, as well as finding success on other social media outlets like YouTube and Instagram.

However, the streamer has been a subject of contention lately, after angry fans expressed dismay that she was keeping her relationship under wraps — but that doesn’t seem to be the reason as to why she’s taking a step back from the camera.

In a tweet on August 5, Imane explained that she will be taking a month-long break from posting on social media and streaming on Twitch after keeping a consistent schedule over almost 6 years on the platform.

Pokimane is one of Twitch’s top streamers, who is taking a step back from her regular broadcasting schedule due to creator burnout.

The streamer explained that her decision was brought about by burnout, claiming that the quarantine has shut down conventions and ways for her to see her fans, which are “joys and motivation for making content.”

“This has led to me feeling burnt out for quite some time, and because of that, I’ve been planning to take a month off,” she explained. “I haven’t taken a month off since I graduated from high school over 6 years ago, and I feel long overdue for some time away from my career and online expectations.”

“I want to be happy and excited to make content for you all, and I’m looking forward to getting back in that head space,” she continued. “Until then, I hope you use this message as a reminder to take care of yourselves.”

Thus far, Pokimane’s social media and streaming hiatus has been met with approval from fans, and comes just a month after YouTuber JackSepticEye’s own lengthy hiatus from content creation due to similar reasons.

For now, it looks like viewers will have to wait a month for new streams from their favorite broadcaster as Pokimane disconnects and takes a much-needed siesta away from the internet.

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
