In a move that just was always meant to be, iconic Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp has signed with esports organization T1 with an announcement that seemingly came out of nowhere.

On October 17, T1 officially announced that Tyler 1 would be joining the org as a streamer and content creator with what might be one of the most hype signing videos we’ve ever seen.

The esports org is one of the biggest names in gaming, especially League of Legends, so it makes sense that they signed Tyler – who, besides having a similar name, is also a massive figure in the world of LoL.

This also means that fans can look forward to more of the streamer’s popular collaborations with Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok, since both are now under the same banner.

Looking fully reformed, we can’t wait to see what Tyler1 and the org manage to come up with together, especially as we get close to the grand finale of Worlds 2020, even though T1 isn’t in attendance this year.

The streaming star seemed pretty excited about the announcement himself, proudly proclaiming himself as the org’s new CEO after watching the video on stream with viewers.

“LoL Tyler1 is joining T1. Officially. By the way, by joining, I mean, Joe Marsh (T1 CEO) is a little b***h, actually a little b***h, so I’m actually running T1,” the streamer joked. “I got full control over everything, I manage the players, manage the staff, pay my own salary. He tried to step up to me, but Joe is really short.”

Esports orgs signing content creators and streamers is certainly nothing new, but Tyler1 is one of the biggest names on Twitch and has been for a while, so it’s easy to see why so many people are excited about the news.

After what could definitely be considered a rough year for North American LoL, not even considering the current global situation preventing live events from happening, one of the most famous League streamers in the game signing with one of the scene’s most well-known teams is certainly a needed breath of fresh air.

Singer-songwriter Halsey is pregnant – and social media, from influencers and YouTubers to countless fans, has lit up with congratulations for the beloved cultural sensation.

Ashley ‘Halsey’ Nicolette Frangipane is an American singer-songwriter with Grammy nominations, Billboard accolades and, above all else, a feverish social media following. Known for her activism and eclecticism, the musician has become a cultural icon with fans across the world.

That variety of fans is not restrained to just social media stans, either, as the singer has apparently amassed a ton of appreciation from fellow influencers. Some of the biggest names from YouTube and social media have popped up congratulating her, nestled between messages from the 36.9 million followers Halsey boasts throughout Instagram and Twitter. 

Posting a “surprise” Instagram carousel of baby bump pictures, the 26-year-old’s comment section is filled with verified check marks sending their love and joy. From established models (and fellow activists) like Emily Ratajkowski to YouTube superstars like James Charles, the support has been nothing short of overflowing.

In the replies to Halsey’s viral IG post, influencer Gabbie Hanna was joined by TikTok legend Addison Rae by sending an ecstatic “congratulations” message. Singer Olivia Rodrigo, whose “Drivers License” track has gone viral on TikTok, joined in too, but wasn’t satisfied with just one message.

In all caps (the pinnacle of excitement), Rodrigo sent a “YESSSS” before following up with a “SENDING U SO MUCH LOVE.”

Similarly uppercased, Charles chimed in with a reply that seems to concisely echo the sentiments shared by all of Halsey’s fans and friends: “CONGRATULATIONS AHHH.”

Aside from being happy about the idea of a mini version of Halsey entering the world, close fans are likely well-aware of how meaningful the moment is for her. The singer has been candid about her past with infertility and her desire for a child, as a 2015 miscarriage prompted the song “More” on her Manic album.

In the wake of such a harrowing history with the desire to bear a child, the news of Halsey’s pregnancy is certainly cause for celebration. Caps-locked congratulations are most certainly in order and few, influencers and fans alike, have held back in rejoicing with the singer and her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin.

“More,” too, can now be played with added joy. Some of its more expressive lyrics take on a new dimension, as a foreseeing welcome to her baby: “And when you decide it’s your time to arrive, I’ve loved you for all of my life.”
