Pokimane Waves Goodbye to Twitch: What’s Next for the Streaming Star?

Pokimane Waves Goodbye to Twitch: In a surprising move, Pokimane, the famous Twitch streamer of 10 years, recently shared she’s leaving the platform. Her message on Twitter marked “the end of an era.”

With a huge following of 9.3 million, Pokimane has been a big deal on Twitch, playing League of Legends, Fortnite, and Among Us. Twitch responded, proud of her and saying she’s always welcome back.

“Twitch has been my home for a decade,” Pokimane said on Twitter, “but it’s time to say thank you for all the memories and love during my League, Fortnite, & Among Us days.”

Twitch is facing its own problems with layoffs and uncertainties under Amazon. They plan to cut about 35% of their staff, and CEO Dan Clancy admitted on a livestream that Amazon is supporting Twitch as it’s not making money.

“I’ll be blunt: we aren’t profitable at this point,” Clancy shared. “Amazon has been extremely supportive of Twitch. A big thing for being sustainable over time is ensuring we don’t lose money.”

This raises questions about Twitch keeping its top streamers. The CEO mentioned they can’t afford big deals for streamers anymore. Pokimane leaving is a big deal and highlights the changing reality for Twitch and its streamers.

So, what’s next for Pokimane? Will she go to a rival platform like Kick, following others like Félix “xQc” Lengyel? Or is YouTube Gaming her next stop, joining Ludwig Ahgren?

We got a sneak peek into Pokimane’s future plans – her first YouTube stream is on February 1 at 12 p.m. PT. Fans are excited to see what comes next for her and how this affects the world of online streaming.

As Pokimane says bye to Twitch, the streaming world is watching to see the next chapters of her digital journey. It’s not just a goodbye for her but also a moment reflecting the changes in the streaming world.
