Pokimane is currently one of the most popular creators on Twitch. She has a strong fan base, and she is always straightforward with them. Recently, she announced on Twitter that she will be taking a break from her Twitch streaming.
Many people believe that broadcasting on Twitch or creating videos for YouTube is nothing more than playing video games and chatting while the money flows in. In reality, many content creators work 12-hour days, seven days a week to create high-quality content. This process can be very stressful.
Pokimane mentioned the need for a “mental reset” as the reason for her break in her formal announcement. The streamer underlined the importance of regular content breaks for long-term health and job longevity, saying, “proper breaks are essential to one’s health/career longevity, and I’m so grateful for the support y’all have shown me over the years.”
Pokimane also expressed gratitude to her fans for encouraging her to take breaks from Twitch and YouTube. She’s already excited to return to content creation “refreshed and ready to make more content.”
Pokimane, began streaming on Twitch in 2013, and she has had amazing success as well as some less pleasant occurrences since then. A fan recently obtained Pokimane’s address and went to her apartment. In an interview with YouTuber Anthony Padilla, she said that interactions like these keep her from buying a house or investing in real estate. The apartment complex’s 24-hour security is critical in keeping the public from abruptly knocking on her door. The Twitch streamer has three separate phone numbers for the same reason.
Pokimane stated in the same interview that she wishes she had started as a faceless content creator since it would have allowed her to safeguard her identity more effectively. Furthermore, viewers can be extremely critical of a content creator’s appearance, attire, hair, or any other superficial aspect that they choose to target. Even the most self-assured and self-aware person can become fatigued after a while.
