Tfue trolls “egirls” after paying them to play Fortnite with him again

As one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, it’s crucial that Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney keeps his content fresh and entertaining, and he’s turned to a new method of doing so – by paying “egirls” to play Fortnite with him.

Tfue uses an online service called ‘E-Girl’, where solo gamers can pay someone to play with them. Unlike the Fortnite training companions that players can pay to improve their game, these players are simply for some company.

It’s not the first time Tfue has tried out the service either, as he previously pretended to be rival streamer Ninja to a group of three girls he had paid to play with, and seemed to get away with it too.

His viewers got such a kick out of it, that Tfue had to do it again, and so on his March 24 stream, recruited three more “egirls” to get in some games with him.

But, rather than trying to show off his world-renowned Fortnite skills, Tfue decided to troll his new teammates instead, purposefully throwing an easy win.

And he wasn’t done there. In another match, Tfue joked that he was ‘flanking’ the enemy in a Choppa, only to jump out to his death instead, leaving his teammates alone to fend for themselves.

With the girls clearly confused, the one remaining in the circle simply walked into the storm to her immediate elimination, as Tfue was in hysterics.

Once the girls realized who they were in a lobby with, one even tried to shout out her own personal stream in front of Tfue’s thousands of viewers.

As she was trying to plug her channel, Tfue can be seen physically cringing on stream, mocking his new teammates without them having any idea.

It looks like using the E-Girl site is Tfue’s newest stream activity, and his fans are clearly loving it. Although the former pro player has criticized Fortnite generally, this might be a good way for him to keep enjoying playing and streaming the game.

He’s thinking of leaving Florida altogether because of Fortnite though, because of issues with connection and ping, due to server locations.

On December 2, Twitter rolled out a huge mass verification, where many accounts of top gamers, streaming personalities and more were finally verified after a rather long wait. But some fans were left frustrated when Twitter seemed to gloss over popular creators like Sykkuno, Dream, and CallMeCarson.

Verification on Twitter is often regarded as a huge achievement for rising creators. That little blue tick is generally a marker that someone is making it big, leading to frequent campaigns led by fans for their favorite creators to be granted verified status.

Twitter decided to grant several wishes all at once on December 2 when they verified a huge number of accounts in one go. One such account was that of Corpse Husband, a YouTuber who has been on the platform for a few years, but experienced an unprecedented surge in popularity this year following the Among Us hype.

Corpse Husband is a wildly popular YouTuber who skyrocketed to fame for his Among Us content, although he also narrates True Horror stories and creates music.

But not everyone was celebrating, as among the chaos of fans and creators rejoicing at their new-found verification, some big names were left behind.

Popular streamer Sykkuno trended on the site with the hashtag ‘VerifySykkuno’ as fans vented their frustration about the snub. “Do it, he deserves it,” one fan wrote.

Fellow streamer Valkyrae tweeted a message in support of the internet campaign, which Sykkuno even retweeted from his account.

Other popular creators that found themselves snubbed by the Twitter Verified account included Minecraft YouTuber Dream, and comedy YouTuber CallMeCarson, who each tweeted their own tongue-in-cheek messages calling out Twitter.

Amid the disarray, instead of verifying YouTuber Karl Jacobs’ account, they accidentally verified the wrong Karl Jacobs with just 200 followers, leading to an onslaught of replies from fellow creators finding the bizarre situation hilarious, including Mr Beast.

While this was one of the biggest verification sprees recently, there is no doubt that another one will be right around the corner.

Fans of the huge creators who were snubbed this time around may be in for a slightly longer wait, but with creators like Corpse Husband getting that coveted blue tick, people are getting their hopes up for the next line of verified creators.
