His announcement came as a massive surprise to his eager fans when they learned that this internet legend will be coming back.

His Twitch stream marks the YouTube star’s debut on the streaming platform after a lengthy absence. The stream lasted 4-hours and was well-received, garnering over 77,000 viewers and 14,000 new followers in just a single day.
