Talia Mar is putting her stamp on the Offline TV Rust server, as the newly inducted member is putting her talents to good use early on to recreate a chillingly accurate impression of Apple’s Siri assistant.

In a world where iPhones dominate over a tenth of the global smartphone market share along with the myriad devices that Siri inhabits, it’s safe to say that many of us have heard the AI assistant’s iconic default voice.

Well, playing as a robot in the OTV server, Mar brought one of her secret talents to the fold to throw off those she came across in the Rust wasteland. Needless to say, her perfect rendition of Siri is a little bit chilling.

Mar is a British content creator and singer with over 800,000 subs on YouTube, about 430,000 followers on Twitch, 500,000 on Twitter and nearly 1 million followers on Instagram. Needless to say, she’s got her army of fans.

While the singer has plenty of tracks that shows off her range, her group in the OTV server probably weren’t ready for the spot-on impression based off of the Siri assistant.

Since she started regularly streaming on Twitch around late 2019, Mar has been quickly raising the ranks on the platform. And now her strange talent has been a favorite among her growing community.

Fortunately for Mar, she’ll get to use the voice as much as she wants since her character in the content creator server is a robot named ‘Siri.’

“For anyone who doesn’t know it,” she explained before giving a demonstration. “I’m in a server– the OTV Rust server, and it’s a roleplay server. And my character is Siri and I do a Siri impression. It’s not a voice changer, I just do it with my voice.”

Talia Mar has been steadily growing her fan base on Twitch.

Unfortunately for the bunch of streamers she’s grouped with, who’re probably impressed but get annoyed at hearing the voice by now, they have to hear it outside of roleplay scenarios, according to Mar.

“They would literally hate it,” she said on stream. “It gets really frustrating real quick, especially if you’re not in a role play situation.”

The remedy, she thought, was just to get used to it. Well, her viewers have been enjoying the Siri impression so far, so it might not be going away so soon.

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.
