Twitch streamer ‘Sweet_Anita’ has seen massive channel growth since hilarious clips of her stream went viral in October of 2018 – but she doesn’t think her chances of getting partnered with the platform are very high.

Anita laughed about the issue during a broadcast on November 15, citing her acute Tourette’s syndrome as a likely reason that her channel may never see a partnership with Twitch.

“I’m not sure they’re too keen on me, if I’m honest, ‘cause they haven’t partnered me,” she joked in response to a fan’s question on the matter. “Everyone’s been like, ‘Where’s the partner?’ And, yeah, I don’t think it’s coming at this point.”

She went on to joke that Twitch might not see her as the ‘right kind of person’ to enter their partnership program, due to their lack of action in regards to her sudden surge in popularity.

“I think they’ve decided that I’m not the right kind of person to be partnering on Twitch,” she said through a good-humored laugh, breaking into a tic shortly thereafter.

While Anita feels that she may never be partnered with the platform, she has spoken out about any potential bans she might receive due to her condition, hoping that Twitch will tolerate any comments that break their TOS – should they arise from a tic and not an intentional statement.

Anita’s channel saw a sudden surge in growth early October of 2018, rising above 75,000 daily followers when clips of her stream went viral on Reddit as shown by trusted social media statistics side Social Blade.


LS reveals how xQc reached out to him during T1 fans backlash

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

xQc reached out to LS during T1 fans backlash

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
