As Dexerto reported, this latest milestone makes Pokimane the sixth most-followed streamer on Twitch as well as the biggest female streamer on the platform.
In November 2020, Pokimane passed 6 million followers on Twitch so it’s clear her channel has grown even more in less than a year.
The most followed Twitch channels right now find Ninja at number one with 16.8 million followers, followed by Tfue, Rubius, Shroud, and Auronplay while Pokimane sits at number six.
Twitch recently added a dedicated ‘hot tubs’ streaming category following a recent controversy and pushback from advertisers. The platform clarified that “being found to be sexy by others is not against our rules” and it “will not take action” against anyone for their “perceived attractiveness”.
Elsewhere, Twitch Streamer Adin Ross recently received a ban for using his mobile phone while driving however, it has since been lifted after less than two days.
