Late Wednesday evening, a small-time Twitch streamer by the name of Nathan saw his follower count nearly drop to zero. The partnered streamer had garnered over 20,000 followers in two years on the platform. However, with a seemingly random stroke of bad luck, he lost nearly all of those followers. In the end, he was left with seven followers and everyone who originally followed the channel had to repeat the process. The story has gone viral on social media, fortunately, and many are pleading with Twitch Support to fix this issue.
Twitch streamer sees follower count nearly drop to zero
The streamer in question goes by Nathan, a partnered Twitch broadcaster and a member of Team New Age. During the waning hours of Wednesday, Jan. 13, Nathan was shocked to find almost all of his followers had vanished into thin air.
Originally, the channel had over 21,000 followers. However, in an instant, Nathan was left with seven. The streamer brought this to the attention of the community and since then, there’s been an outcry for Twitch Support to resolve the matter.
The original tweet blew up within an hour of being posted. Receiving mass attention from the community, Twitch Support has no doubt seen the issue. However, the company has not yet revealed if it’s looking into it or not.
Since the start of 2021, Twitch has seen some massive problems on a day-to-day basis. From the entire site going down to chats not working properly, it hasn’t been a smooth ride so far in the new year. Although, if channels are beginning to lose followers out of the blue, Twitch has a whole new monster to deal with.
As of the time of writing, Nathan has still not regained his original followers or been given a reason as to why they vanished in the first place. Fortunately, he went live shortly after his tweet went viral and gained 10,000+ followers within hours.
Hopefully, Twitch can resolve the original lost followers issue and ensure it doesn’t happen to another streamer.
