Twitch: Pokimane thought of leaving the platform in 2022

Twitch Pokimane

Pokimane and Amouranth have been the content creators of Twitch with more views in 2020 and 2021 respectively. They manage to add thousands of viewers to each broadcast, which translates into donations and subscriptions at the end of the day.

However, being a famous content creator means putting your life up for public scrutiny, and if you quit for a few weeks, you might lose a lot of numbers. A job that is not for everyone.

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys commented on a stream earlier this year that she planned to leave the purple platform sometime in 2022. However, she has found motivation in new viewers and content creators coming from different backgrounds.

“I was debating if I wanted to say this, but I think I might as well. If it wasn’t for the influx of female viewers, female streamers, and members of the most diverse community, whether it’s people of color or other minorities within the last year or two due to Covid, I think I probably would have pulled out of streaming this year.” detailed.

He considered leaving Twitch because “it stopped being fun” to broadcast due to the friction and controversy he encountered in this space. In turn, he stated that sometimes he just wanted to spend his time enjoying video games.

Pokimane faced a hate raid

Pokimane’s Jan. 12 stream was the subject of a hate attack the day before she told her viewers she was thinking about abandoning her streaming career. According to Dexerto, the raid was instigated by JiDion, a Twitch partner who directed his followers to her channel. As a result, her page was inundated with abusive and sexist remarks. JiDion, who was only partnered on Twitch on January 11, has now been banned for two weeks by Twitch. Though the broadcaster stated on Twitter that his “dislike with her has nothing to do with her gender but with her as a person,” he acknowledged breaking Twitch’s rules against “targeted” and “personal assaults.”

Pokimane has since made her primary Twitter page private, however, she did send an update to her second account, posting an unhappy emoji for the “hundreds of incels in [her] mentions” and thanking her followers for the “lovely msgs & tweets.” She was clearly referring to the numerous supporting tweets she’s gotten since the hate attack from streamers like Jacksepticeye, Disguised Toast, and many others, behavior she doesn’t want to be normalized.

Only time will tell if Pokimane’s choice to continue on Twitch is influenced by the hate raid. As she stated in her Jan. 13 show, this discipline appears to be far too light, but she was also disappointed to see someone “who had previously been abusing [her] on Twitter for a week [be] paired on Twitch.” She immediately addressed the platform, saying, “Is that the sort of partners you’re looking for, Twitch? I just don’t get it.”
