Asmongold questions Pokimane’s move from Twitch to YouTube – The gaming and streaming community was rocked when popular Twitch streamer Pokimane announced her departure from the platform after over a decade. However, her reasoning for the move has left fellow streamer Asmongold baffled.
In late January, Pokimane made headlines by revealing her decision to leave Twitch and transition to YouTube. Citing dissatisfaction with the direction Twitch was heading and the prevalence of “manosphere red pill bullsh*t” on the platform, Pokimane expressed her intention to seek a new home for her content.

While Pokimane’s reasons seemed clear to her, Asmongold found her explanation puzzling. During a podcast, he questioned the logic behind her move, pointing out that YouTube, in his opinion, harbors even more of the content she’s seeking to avoid.
Asmongold highlighted YouTube Shorts as an example, suggesting that the platform contains a greater abundance of the problematic content Pokimane criticized Twitch for. Expressing his confusion, he remarked, “How the f**k do you go from Twitch to YouTube and blame Twitch for having red pill stuff, whenever the red pill stuff is primarily on YouTube?”
Despite his skepticism, Asmongold acknowledged that Pokimane’s decision may have been strategic, especially if she aims to appeal to a broader audience and pursue a more mainstream content creator status.
The exchange between Asmongold and Pokimane underscores the complexities of content creation and platform dynamics within the streaming community. While each creator navigates their own path based on personal preferences and objectives, their decisions often spark debates and discussions among fans and peers alike.
As Pokimane begins her new chapter on YouTube and on other streaming platforms as well, the community eagerly awaits the evolution of her content and the impact of her platform switch.
