An epic conclusion for TommyInnit main quest in the Dream SMP Minecraft server lit up Twitch like few streams have before, earning the UK personality a spot in the top broadcasts of all time.

It was a long time coming for Tommy, starting out the stream reminiscing about all of the Minecraft shenanigans he was a part of since he joined YouTuber Dream’s custom server in July 2020.

He titled his stream ‘The Dream SMP Finale’ and that was more than enough to generate an insane amount of hype that quickly saw his sub-two hour broadcast garner hundreds of thousands of viewers.

The Disc Saga came to a close with a shocking revelation, but not before Tommy put his name in the annals of Twitch lore. Everyone must have taken notice, since his viewer count easily eclipsed 100,000 in no time at all.

TommyInnit easily blew by 500,000 viewers during his Dream SMP Minecraft Twitch stream.

From there the digital counter just kept climbing, eventually peaking at around 650,000 concurrent viewers for the content creator.

That gives the YouTuber the third highest concurrent viewer stream on Twitch, only trailing Grefg who peaked at 660,000 viewers in early December 2020 during the Fortnite Galactus event, just to demolish that mark a month later on January 11 by reaching 2.5 million viewers.

Even if we include company channels that usually host events, TommyInnit’s January 20 stream still places 6th on the all-time highest peak viewers list on Twitch ahead of Ninja (8th), Ibai (10th), shroud (12th), and more, according to TwitchTracker.

The Minecraft community showed up for Tommy on his big day as well as people who were tuning in to see the main man of the server, Dream, come alive (and then die, just to be imprisoned).

For those who were in the ‘know,’ Tommy’s latest stream was the culmination of months on end journeying across the SMP server and its cast of colorful characters, with many wanting to tune in to see it live.

And Tommy didn’t discount the possibility of returning to the server soon. So who knows, maybe this won’t be the last time that TommyInnit puts up wild numbers on Twitch for his Minecraft antics.

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.
