Seagull loses his mind over Torbjörn’s ultimate during Overwatch match

Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned is one of the most well-known Overwatch streamers, but he just couldn’t seem to make up his mind on Torbjörn’s ultimate.

Torbjorn got a complete rework in September of 2018 that changed his abilities and his ultimate, which no longer affects his turret and now sends out a stream of molten slag to damage enemies.

Seagull’s been spending a lot of time playing the new hit battle royale Apex Legends, but he managed to find some time for a few rounds of Overwatch.

During a recent stream, Seagull was running Torbjorn during a competitive match, and managed to throw out his Molten Core before being eliminated.

After getting just one kill with the ult, Seagull cried out “This ult is so bad, it’s so garbage.”

Just as the streamer was about to lose all hope and faith in Torb, the enemy Moira wandered into his ultimate and died.

“Oh wait wait, he died to it,” Seagull said, his faith restored. “This ult is amazing!”

Torbjörn was among the heroes to get buffed in Overwatch’s February 26 PTR patch. He got 50 armor taken from his Overload ability, but had it added to his base health instead.

Whether or not this will increase Torb’s survivability as intended by developers remains to be seen, as does when the updates will go from the PTR into the live game.

Why is #FreeTommy trending? Tommyinnit responds after shock TikTok ban

Popular Minecraft YouTuber Tommyinnit has become a major trend across social media again as the internet celebrity had his TikTok account banned out of nowhere.

Tommyinnit has been one of the fastest-growing stars on the internet of late. From remarkable Twitch viewership to staggering income, his growth across a number of social platforms has been something to behold. Though there was one major setback in his way for a short period.

The popular personality was suddenly removed from TikTok on February 24. Seemingly without reason, the platform banned Tommyinnit’s account which had just climbed to over four million followers.

“TikTok just banned me,” he revealed on Twitter.

“Crushed. I am absolutely crushed. Please TikTok,” he added with a hashtag that went on to trend in a matter of minutes. “#FreeTommy.”

Having trended on Twitter just days prior, this latest viral moment comes as a result of the bad news. Thousands of loyal fans immediately jumped on the trend, spamming #FreeTommy across social media to get it trending.

There’s no denying the enormous community support had an impact as Tommy’s account was restored in under an hour.

Hundreds of tweets and thousands of impressions later, his TikTok account was back to normal. All of his videos were brought back to the platform and the creator was free to engage with fans once again.

There’s currently no telling why the sudden ban came through in the first place, however. The 16-year-old has just 18 videos on TikTok at the time of writing, most of which are simple close-ups on his face.

#FreeTommy shot to the number one trend worldwide in a matter of minutes.

While the controversy was short-lived, it goes to show that even the biggest social media stars can have their profiles erased in the blink of an eye. 

TikTok is yet to explain the reason behind this shock ban, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated if any further information comes to light.
