Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys explained why she’s glad Sykkuno left Twitch to sign an exclusive deal with YouTube, claiming she loves it when people get “a lot of money” from big companies.
On May 2nd, Sykkuno turned the world upside down after announcing a surprise move to YouTube. According to KristoferYee, he was reportedly offered a “ridiculous” amount of money to switch platforms.
Sykkuno revealed that Twitch tried to match the offer and it almost swayed him. However, he claimed that they mistyped his name in an email, which surprised him enough that it ultimately influenced his decision.
While it’s bittersweet news for fans who were hoping he’d stay on Twitch, Poki admitted she’s “happy” he’s made the switch, explaining that streamers who are getting massive platform deals at the expense of big companies , are a big win.
“I’m happy for him and I want to watch him say ‘oh my goodness!’ it to the bank. To the bank! Yes!” said Poki. Knowing full well that people would be interested in her hiring, she elaborated on it.
“Honestly, I’m almost always excited when someone gets a platform deal. Because to me, this is just, oh my god, a big company giving a lot of money to someone I know.” In this case, it turned out to be a friend, too.
She then did her best to crack a nasty laugh and said, “Let’s suck her dry!” – referring to streamers getting big payouts from companies – before adding, “You know? I’m just happy to see how people make money!”
Sykkuno is one of several streamers who have switched from Twitch to YouTube in recent years. The list includes Ludwig, DrLupo, TimTheTatman, and Valkyrae. It is also recommended to include at least five other newcomers.
However, not everyone is convinced of the idea. For example, xQc believes streamers can lose their presence on YouTube, and Asmongold claims some aspects of YouTube are “junk” compared to Twitch.
dr Disrespect, which switched from Twitch to YouTube in August 2020 after being mysteriously banned, recently hit the platform. Claiming that they “do not support [streamers] a little bit.”
