Pokimane Signs Multi-Year Exclusivity Deal with Twitch
We haven’t heard any more big-name streamers signing exclusive deals in a while. But, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any big names left to sign.
The biggest of all and the prize every platform has looked to sign is much-beloved streamer Pokimane. She sat quietly while her fellow streaming juggernauts signed off with Mixer, YouTube, Facebook and Twitch. Now, she reveals her exclusivity deal with the place that made her into a star: Twitch.
Twitch Welcomes Pokimane
In a press release from her representative agency UTA, Pokimane announced the signing of a multi-year deal with the streaming juggernaut Twitch.
“Since I began my gaming career on Twitch six years ago, the platform has given me such an incredible opportunity to create content and connect with people around the world. The community of streamers on Twitch, as well as the community I’ve built around my channel, both mean so much to me. I want to continue to make a lasting impact on the world of live streaming, and I truly believe there’s no other place that has the infrastructure and tools that will allow me to do so.”
She is arguably one of the biggest names in the streaming industry. Pokimane has over 17 million followers across social media with over 3.9 million on Twitch alone. She certainly is the most significant female streamer on the platform.
Her positive message and laid-back streams have garnered her a highly loyal following. Pokimane’s gameplay kept fans coming back for more. She opened a world of new opportunities for her, including participation in several Twitch Rivals events.
Pokimane’s also made use of her fame and fortune to give back to the community as well. Pokimane donated $50,000 to the University of California, Irvine (UCI), to form a scholarship for students involved with its highly regarded esports program. Besides that, she contributed to countless philanthropic causes over the years.
Details on the estimated value and exact length of the Pokimane Twitch deal are not currently available.
