Pokimane, a renowned content creator with a decade-long presence on Twitch, has recently announced her departure from the platform, marking the end of an era. As one of the most esteemed and beloved streamers, this news has generated significant buzz among fans and the streaming community alike. Discover more about Pokimane’s decision to part ways with Twitch and gain insights into the impact of her departure on the streaming landscape.

Massively popular streamer Pokimane has confirmed she is leaving Twitch after just over ten years streaming on the Amazon-owned platform. First starting her Twitch channel in 2013 primarily as a League of Legends streamer, Imane "Pokimane" Anys quickly became one of Twitch's most popular creators on the platform for her entertaining streams and fun personality. Pokimane's meteoric rise in popularity would see her become the most-followed female streamer on Twitch, going on to co-found streamer group OfflineTV. Now, Pokimane is saying goodbye to the platform that made her famous.

While Pokimane first started on Twitch as a League of Legends creator, she would branch out into a wide variety of content, often playing many of the popular trending games. Pokimane was one of the biggest streamers to jump onto Fortnite during its rise in 2018, and she would later contribute to the massive success of Among Us, starting in late 2020. Pokimane even played a part in a high-profile event that saw herself and several other creators playing Among Us with United States representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. However, Pokimane's time on Twitch has apparently come to an end.

In an announcement posted to her Twitter account, Pokimane shared the news that she will be leaving Twitch as a streamer. While the post did not cite her reasoning behind the decision to depart from the platform that saw her rise to fame, Pokimane expressed gratitude to the site that was her "home for a decade." The post also fondly reflects on her time streaming games like the previously mentioned League of Legends and Among Us. Pokimane did not share where she would be taking her streams to, with fans speculating YouTube or Kick could be destinations for Pokimane.
