Creators like Pokimane and Valkyrae are the faces of female streaming. While the 100 Thieves member streams on YouTube, Pokimane is widely considered the queen of Twitch. The 24-year-old boasts over 7.5 million followers on the platform, alongside 168 million chance viewers. She often streams games like Among Us and Grand Theft Auto 5 roleplay. More often than not, Pokimane ends the month with the highest number of hours viewed for a female creator.

The controversial streamer outdid Imane Anys by thirteen hours, finishing the week with a ridiculous total of 1,791,841 hours watched.

Currently, Amouranth’s Twitch following is roughly 2.3 million and the recent trend of ‘hot tub’ streams becoming very popular on the platform has only helped her cause. However, the main reason Amouranth outdid Pokimane is the major difference in hours streamed. Amouranth streamed on Twitch for a total of 299 hours in March, whereas Anys only streamed for a bit more than 93 hours.

Amouranth also has a wider variety of content to offer. Whenever you tune in, you could see her playing video games, dancing, recording ASMR, or sleeping. It will be interesting to see if the streamer keeps up this hot streak in April.

Imane still seems to be the face of Twitch, however, her reign could soon be coming to a close. The fact that she was actually the top streamer on Twitch throughout all of 2020 in addition to her strong ratio of hours streamed to hours watched just goes on to show her dominance.

Are you a fan of Amouranth’s content? Are you surprised that she overtook Pokimane in total viewed hours? Let us know in the comments down below.
