Twitch streamer DiamondJamz goes live regularly on the platform and gone through many of the struggles smaller gamers to by not being able to establish a following, but that all changed after a big shoutout from Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar. 

Summit is known for being quite the variety streamer himself, playing smaller games you might not expect somebody with nearly six million followers to try out, and starting his own trends.

Something else he does, quite regularly as well, is back smaller streamers trying to make their first big break in the industry. It can be tough, as DiamondJamz knows all too well.

After over five years of streaming on Twitch with hardly any subscribers, it was a massive shock on February 4 when the leader of the 1G Squad gave him a shoutout on Twitter.

Summit1g shoutout makes Twitch streamer’s day

Explaining it was going to be a short while before he was going live himself, summit dropped a very valuable endorsement on his timeline, suggesting people should give Jamz a try.

He tweeted: “I’m gonna a sleep for another hour or so. Chill and watch this guy til then,” linking his Twitch stream directly.

A flood of positive messages proceeded the post, with fans saying: “You made this guys day. Good guy summit,” and “You did an amazing thing sumsum.”

If you wanted to see the effect it had, all you had to do is jump into DiamondJamz’s stream.

As a number of new people subscribed to his channel, he started to break down in front of his new viewers while playing Call of Duty’s new Zombies map, Firebase Z.

“I really appreciate it guys, like seriously. I just cannot believe this is happening, seriously. Summit, bro, I’m making you a mod in my stream homie, thank you so much dude.

“I promise you I won’t take this for granted and this is literally life changing for me bro, like I’ve been streaming on Twitch for almost six years and waiting for my big break to happen. I have a seven year old son bro that I’ve been trying to grind so hard to build a future for him bro, and you just really helped show me not to give up.”

After the huge turnaround for his channel following a nod from summit, DiamondJamz has racked up over 12,000 followers and smashing his sub goals in the process.

Maybe, just maybe, he’ll continue to grow and actually maintain an audience. That would be a perfect end to this story.


KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
