Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has commented on “weird” content creators who apparently make bold speculations about her love life to their viewers.

Pokimane is among the most popular streamers on Twitch, the number one female streamer, having ammassed a huge audience of over 4 million followers on her channel.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, many viewers are often curious about her relationship status, however, she has explained that she is not keen to reveal aspects of her private life.

Pokimane shut down streamers speculating about her private life.

The Twitch star has previously expressed concerns around those who make their relationship public, expressing that she would not like to go through breakups similar to other ‘internet couples.’

Her silence on the subject has led to speculation from viewers and even some of her fellow streamers, such as Riley, who she poked fun at in her March 21 broadcast.

After being sent a clip of Riley suggesting that Pokimane had been “probably been dating someone for the last 6 years,” the Twitch star fired back.

“Do you know how weird it is for me to imagine that random people are just talking about sh*t like this,” Pokimane said.

“Also, if I’ve been dating someone for 6 years we better be married by now, what the hell?” she jokingly added, expressing that she would not be able to keep a marriage secret.

When viewers asked her to confront her fellow streamer, Pokimane responded that it was not worth it. “There is nothing to confront – it’s just weird, you know you run out of content when you’re tryna steal my simps,” Pokimane joked, before bursting into laughter.

Although Anys was being lighthearted in her response, it’s likely she has noticed other streamers also commenting on matters in her private life, and is clearly not a fan of all the speculation.

Despite streaming almost daily to her massive audience, it’s important for Pokimane, and all popular streamers, to maintain a level of privacy.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
