Twitch megastar Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys announced on January 18 that she is getting her own in-game Fortnite emote, following in the footsteps of  Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins as Epic continues to add streamers to the game.

Pokimane is the most popular female streamer on Twitch, and is a juggernaut on social media, boasting millions of subscribers across her YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.

The OfflineTV personality announced on social media that she will be the second streamer to be featured in the game by getting her own Fortnite emote.

On January 18, the streamer revealed on Twitter that the emote is based on a dance that she had posted on the video app Tik-Tok.

Just like Ninja’s skin pack which was announced on January 15th, the Twitch star will be represented in the game – although not as a skin like the Mixer star.

On Twitter, she detailed that the addition will be available on January 19th at 4PM PST. “Can’t believe I’m saying this, but i officially have my own @fortnitegame Emote! it’s available at 4PM PT tomorrow if you’d like to get it!” she said.

Pokimane’s announcement comes fresh off of Epic partnering with Tik-Tok, as fans can submit their own dance to the popular social media app for a chance to get their own emote into the battle royale.

The streamer made the reveal during her broadcast, where she also hinted at the possibility of getting her own skin. “There’s no skin for now. Maybe someday. But for now, I do little dance!” she said.

She had previously teased an announcement on October 20th, stating that she was “signing the contract soon” which led many of her fans to believe that she was making the jump from Twitch to Mixer, although perhaps this was the deal she was hinting at.

Pokimane had an incredible 2019, gaining millions of subscribers on Twitch and launching her own clothing brand which sold out in a month after release.

And now the streaming personality has been immortalized in Fortnite, solidifying her as one of the most influential entertainers on the platform right now. And who knows, maybe she will get her very own skin in the future.

After receiving a huge $2,500 donation, Twitch streamer HAchubby celebrated in a rather unexpected manner that made for an amazing Twitch highlight.

If you’re a fan of Twitch and you tune into the platform regularly then you’ll know that watching streamers receive huge donations is always entertaining. Audiences love watching them so much, there’s even a sub-genre of videos on YouTube that are dedicated to donating huge amounts of money to streamers to see their reactions.

It’s no surprise these videos get millions of views as it’s always great content to see a Twitch streamer having their day made by a big donation. Of course, it’s difficult to predict how someone will act after being donated a large amount of money.

In HAchubby’s case, it involved celebrating by running around her store with a basket on her head.

HAchubby celebrates huge Twitch donation

During her January 19 stream, HAchubby received a huge $2,500 Twitch donation from one of her viewers. Of course, she was extremely grateful for the donation and expressed how thankful she was: “Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god thank you so much.”

At first, it appeared as if she was going to carry on with the stream, but then she suddenly burst into a celebratory dance. Her Twitch chat erupted with messages and her viewers were clearly happy to see how thankful she was for the donation.

It was at that point she grabbed a basket from the store that she owns and began running about the aisle with it on her head. The highlight made for a hilarious Twitch clip and it was obvious how much the donation meant to her.

There’s no denying it’s not your typical reaction to a donation, but it’ll certainly be a memorable highlight for any of her viewers watching live. On top of this, you can guarantee it’ll be added to the range of streamer donation clips featured in various compilation videos.

We’ll have to keep our eye for any more big donations that HAchubby receives to see how she reacts the second time around.
