Pokimane ends his career on Twitch

In just over ten years, Imane Anys, better known under the pseudonym Pokimanehas established herself as one of the leading figures in the Twitch and has become one of the most followed content creators in the world. This era is coming to an end, as the streamer has chosen to leave the platform. For the moment, Pokimane has not indicated whether it will continue streaming with a competitor, or even whether it will continue this activity in the future.


Pokimane launches on Twitch from 2012just over ten years ago. Whether through its content on League of Legends, Among Us, Valorant or Fortnite - a game in which it has its own emotion by the way - the streamer has won the hearts of many a fan in the space of a decade. Today, she boasts no less than 9.3 million followers on Amazon's platform, making her the most followed female personality on Twitch.

[...] when I see things on Twitch, I feel a bit like I've done it before. I'm not really enthusiastic or passionate about much, apart from chatting and connecting with people.

However, two years ago, Pokimane expressed its wish to move away from Twitch - which no longer stimulated her as it used to - to concentrate on other platforms, such as TikTok or Instagram, but also and above all to take more time for herself and break out of the 'full-time streamer' routine she'd fallen into.

And finally, a few hours later, live, the content creator bids farewell to the platform "The end of an era. Twitch has been my home for a decade... but it's time to say thank you for all the memories and love during my League, Fortnite and Among us days."

In her press release, Pokimane did not specify whether she was leaving the service for another or whether she was putting an end to her streaming career altogether. It's possible that she's decided to migrate to another platform, given that Twitch hasn't no longer intent on signing big contracts with the biggest stars. It is also plausible that it has chosen to focus on other businesses, in particular its Myna Snacks brandlaunched at the end of 2023.
