Popular streamer Sweet Anita joked that she’s going to ‘copy strike’ a fellow broadcaster after he, inadvertently, started to mimic her tics during streams because of Twitch chat. 

Since kicking off her streams in 2018, Sweet Anita has become one of Twitch’s most popular and loved streamers – with her Tourette’s tics leading to some pretty hilarious moments for both herself and her viewers.

In her climb up Twitch’s popularity standing, the streamer has amassed over 750,000 followers, with thousands of fans tuning in to watching her regular broadcasts. Though, during her March 28 stream, Anita issued a pretty hilarious warning to anikichad – a fan of hers, who also has Tourette’s syndrome, and has turned to streaming.

The British streamer has become very popular on Twitch.

During her short Saturday morning stream, the new streamer had just crossed the year mark of being subbed to Anita when she took a moment to thank him and compliment his contributions to some of her previous broadcasts.

“He is really charismatic and I think he’s going to go far because he’s started streaming and he’s doing really well, but unfortunately, he’s caught a few of my tics,” Anita said, before demonstrating which ones they were. 

“Quite often, people come into his chat and ask that question, and say why are you copying Anita’s tics. Well, fair play to you dude for sticking with it and preserving,” she added.

Though, things took a pretty hilarious turn when the streamer came to the conclusion of her praise. “That said, those are my f**king tics and I am copy striking your VODs, you bitch,” she said, looking as stern-faced as possible.

“You better take them the f**k down or give me the royalties, ok. I didn’t go through 30 years of these tics and this bulls**t just for you to steal my thunder, ok. Pay up! I’ll talk to you after the stream,” Anita concluded, all while hiding her laugh behind taking a sip of a drink.

Of course, the streamer was only joking and the moment gave her fans a laugh – though, if you tuned in at the wrong time, you may have thought she was laying down the law. 

After all, Anita is supportive with other streamers and, like she did with Aniki, hypes them up every so often.

100 Thieves Among Us stream gets heated after CouRage takes on Valkyrae

Streaming stars CouRage, Valkyrae, Nadeshot and other creators from 100 Thieves all came together to play Among Us at the same time – and things got a little heated, to say the least.

Among Us has become one of the surprise hits no one saw coming in 2020. Innersloth’s party game is already a few years old, but only got picked up by Twitch over the summer.

Since then, everyone and their grandma seems to be venting to medbay and ruining various friendships along the way – but any kind of Among Us events are something we haven’t seen too much of (for obvious reasons) right now.

However – while observing appropriate social distancing measures, of course – CouRage, Valkyrae and other members of 100 Thieves gathered to show how insane trying to figure out who the Imposter really is when you’re all in the same room can really can be.

100 Thieves CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag gathered a crew at the org’s compound for what they called “Among Us IRL,” which, despite the name, didn’t actually involve anyone being harmed or ejected out of an airlock.

“We will be talking in real life, so real mannerisms will matter, so when Rae is lying because she stabbed me and she’s trying to get away with it, now everyone else can see that and call her out,” CouRage explained before the crew suited up (literally – they put on space suits).

Turns out, as Twitch’s fastest-growing streamer Valkyrae discovered that while she was Imposter with CouRage, lying is much more difficult in person than it is through a keyboard or headset over the internet.

Nadeshot sadly didn’t get to be the Imposter even once in all of the games 100 Thieves played together, which is a special kind of pain everyone who’s played more than one game in a row knows all too well.

While Among Us professional esports will probably never be a thing (but you never know), it’s clear Innersloth’s sleeper hit is still king at producing content for now.
