Popular streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1g‘ Lazar has called for Twitch to help him troll Dr Disrespect, with a cheeky dig on social media.

Summit almost single-handedly started the Sea of Thieves revival on the streaming platform of late, and now – with so many high profile figures from the streaming platform deciding to start playing the game – he’s started to fire some shots their way. 

This time, the streamer has asked permission from Twitch to start running ads on the Doc’s channel to promote his own. 

RAREDr Disrespect is just one of many high profile streamers to start playing Sea of Thieves in 2019.

“Hey Twitch, I would like to run ads exclusively on Dr Disrespect’s channel advertising my own. What will that run me?” he tweeted, mentioning both of their official Twitter accounts. 

While the comment was intended to be tongue-in-cheek, there’s a good chance that this request could spark a war of words between the two popular personalities.

The initial lack of response from Dr Disrespect left people like TimTheTatman and others eagerly awaiting his reply.

It didn’t take long for the Doc to respond to summit’s request, although rather than insulting his height as expected, he instead promised there was more to come.

Dr Disrespect has been angered about some of Twitch’s adverts in the past, such as those promoting Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ New Year’s Eve event in Times Square, New York. On that occasion, he told Twitch: “Don’t do it ever again.”

As such, it wasn’t too surprising to see the Doc respond in the manner he did. 

Given how the pair have interacted in PUBG over the last couple of years, we could certainly see some more highly entertaining battles soon enough.

TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
