Popular Twitch streamer Michael ‘Apex Legends. 

California was been rocked by a second powerful earthquake within the space of two days on July 5, with the latest reaching magnitude highs of 7.1.

As California is used as a hub for Content creators to collaborate with each other, many popular Twitch streamers who are based in the state, such as Shroud, reacted to the shock while livestreaming to thousands.

Twitch: shroudShroud is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch and has experienced quite a lot on stream.

Shroud was testing out the new ranked play mode that was released with Apex Legends Season Two when he realized that another earthquake was on the way, “Oh my god, did we just get another earthquake?” Shroud asked, surprised, “Yeah we’re getting the earthquake, holy fuck.”

He then switched his camera to full screen and his entire desk could be seen shaking significantly in what was considered to be one of California’s strongest earthquakes in recent times, saying “Bro it’s still going, this is crazy what do we do?”

One of Shroud’s friends even mentioned that the earthquake could be felt in Las Vegas, Nevada, however, it did not seem to set them back from finishing their game of ranked play and earning more elo despite their “monitors jiggling” mid-game.

After the earthquake had passed, the Canadian streamer shared his emotions following the dramatic event by simply tweeting out “AHHHH” among the wave of panicked Californian residents.

As one of the most popular Twitch streamers on the platform, shroud has already experienced his fair share of dramatic and bizarre events affecting him while livestreaming, such as dealing with hackers in Apex Legends, but an earthquake takes it to another level.

Although it was one of the largest earthquakes in decades for the Golden State, it appears as if shroud managed to get through the tremors without damage to any of his equipment – and it didn’t stop him gaming.

On October 26, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg responded to a glitch that omitted his YouTube channel from searches a few days before. The bug sparked widespread speculation that he had been “shadowbanned” by Google.

The YouTube community was rocked on October 19 when rumors began to spread that the platform’s largest content creator, PewDiePie, had been shadowbanned. However, it was quickly clarified to be a bug and his account was fixed.

The Swede addressed the drama in his first video back since the glitch. While the star believed that people were too quick to jump to conclusions about him being banned, he did have questions for Google as to why his channel was the only one affected.

PewDiePie responds to YouTube after “shadowban” glitch

Fans of the personality became concerned on October 19 when his channel disappeared from searches on YouTube. His latest video tanked in views as no one could see it without a direct link. Google then released a statement and said it was an error before fixing his channel hours later.

Responding to the incident, Pewds revealed that he didn’t think he was shadowbanned as his account had been having issues for days. “People started noticing my video wasn’t getting any views. And it just went everywhere. There was a bunch of news for it!” he said, before he joked, “Shadow ban! They creep from the shadows and they ban you!”

Despite not being overly concerned, Kjellberg did find it peculiar that it mainly impacted his channel and nobody else’s. “I didn’t think they shadowbanned me, I just assumed it was a glitch. But it begs the question, how does that happen? How did it happen? It didn’t happen to anyone else. I asked around.”

The popular entertainer later joked about YouTube trying to explain the glitch, after reacting to a fan submission on Reddit. “We shadowbanned our biggest creator! Yeah, yeah it was weird. It was weird, what in the world,” he said.

To add salt to the wound, Pewds celebrated his birthday on October 24, but instead of well wishes from fans, his subreddit was flooded with users concerned that he had been shadowbanned by Google. It should also be stated there is no confirmation that the company even does bans in this manner.

At the time of writing, the star’s account is back to normal, and his uploads are getting millions of views again. If nothing else, the incident shows just how many people love the 31-year-old entertainer. Viewers were quick to rally together for the content creator – further proof that Kjellberg is the king of the platform.
