Popular League of Legends or Team Fight Tactics, has amassed over 3.4 followers on the live streaming platform.

However, she isn’t just incredibly popular there. The streamer has also parlayed her popularity into other social media platforms – mainly YouTube and Instagram, where she creates different content to her streams, including vlogs from events she attends. So, it’s no surprise that she’s chugging ahead and picking up more fans by the day.

Pokimane is by far and away Twitch's biggest female streamer.

On October 7, Poki revealed via Instagram that she had eclipsed four million followers on the photo-sharing platform, and at the same time, reached just over four million subscribers on YouTube. 

“We hit 4M on Instagram & YouTube!” she said in the caption of her celebratory photos with two ‘4M’ balloons. “Thank you SO much to everyone who hit that sub/follow button.”

As a reward for the ever-growing support, the streamer revealed that she would be giving away four of the brand new iPhone 11s or a PC of the same value.

To enter, all fans have to do is follow the instructions in her milestone celebration post, which includes commenting on how they first found her channel – which will no doubt lead to some heartfelt stories from long-time followers.

Despite the rise and success, Pokimane won’t be finished anytime soon as she continues to stream on Twitch – although she had taken a recent break due to illness that she picked up at TwitchCon.

Her next target will more than likely be getting her streaming channel to the four million mark – which she isn’t a long way off in doing. If she does manage to reach it, there will only be a handful of active channels above her including Shroud, Tfue, and Ninja – despite his move to Mixer.
