Popular Twitch streamer HAchubby became emotional in her first stream back in Korea after watching clips of herself hanging out with her friends at TwitchCon.

The Korean is one of Twitch’s fastest rising stars, with her hilarious antics, reactions, and interactions with customers at her part-time job in a convenience store bringing thousands of viewers to her channel.

The streamer visited America to attend TwitchCon in San Diego, California for the first time and spent the week following the event in New York, but has since returned to South Korea. While watching clips of her time away, HAchubby became choked up as she relived some priceless memories.

Throughout her time in America, HAchubby spent time with a number of friends she had made during her time on Twitch and even gave friend and fellow streamer 39daph a birthday present while in town.

Watching the clip of her friend brought a tear to the eye of HAchubby, who explained that she was sad that she only got to spend “one week with her new friends.”

“I met a lot of people, and there was a lot happening,” she explained. “I just miss this.”

Her friends weren’t the only thing that the Korean missed, as a moment on her Instagram brought memories flooding back for the streamer, who got emotional again as she gazed on the last slice of New York pizza she had before returning home.

“Oh, my pizza,” she stated, her voice cracking again. “I miss you. It was very, very delicious, and also salty and soft. Korean pizza and New York pizza is very, very different, different texture. I miss this pizza now. This is my favorite pizza, but I can’t eat it in Korea, so now I’m sad.”

The streamer is now back in her homeland, but at her current rate of growth on the Amazon-owned streaming platform, it seems unlikely that it will be her last appearance at TwitchCon.

HAchubby only joined the site back in 2018 and has already amassed over 100,000 followers, so you can expect to see her pop up at major Twitch events in the future.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
