An hour popular Twitch streamer Pokimane posted a YouTube video; it was created especially for YouTube, not a reaction video or clip from Twitch. Lately, the 26-years-old streamer is not very active on Twitch as she moved to another place and wants to settle down her personal life a bit.
Pokimane uploaded the video titled, “why I took a break + what’s next for me.” She took over a month to figure out what she wanted to do next as she felt bound to streaming and frustrated because streamers always needed to keep up with the latest and most significant trends. It becomes stressful over time because you’re always chasing something.
She said in the video that her life right now doesn’t align very much with streaming nowadays, as first she was streaming seven days a week and then six days a week and then 5 and 4, and it goes on.
She mentioned that she is also looking into other platforms like Instagram and TikTok, where you can upload a video quickly and it doesn’t take too much time.
You can watch the whole 14 minutes video below. Still, overall, the footage summarises that Pokimane is exploring other content platforms like TikTok and Instagram, which best suit her lifestyle and don’t affect her personal life.
At the end of the video, Pokimane got emotional and cried a bit while explaining this to her fans. However, she will not leave the gaming but won’t be making as frequent as she was.
