'Sweet' streamer goes from 9 followers to 55k thanks to kind strangers

People were moved by the streamer's wholesome demeanour.

Twitch streamer zebrapig4299 has gone from just 10 followers to an incredible 55,000 followers when a sweet video of her singing "happy birthday" went viral on TikTok.

zebrapig4299, who describes themself as a "neurodivergent, chronic illness gaming nerd and nurse" and loves "talking about all things in the medical and gaming world," started their channel in 2018. Given how easy and accessible streaming is for a lot of people regardless of the technology they have, Twitch is filled to the brim with every kind of content creator catering to every kind of audience, from just chatting to metalworking to wildlife feeds and regular ol' gaming streams. Not only is it now a legitimate way to make money, it's also a way to chill out and make friends with common interests.

With zebrapig4299, Portal Knights is their game of choice, and one recent stream saw their follower count hit the double digits. When the follower pointed out they were their tenth follower, they replied, "I know, like a whole 10! Woohoo!"

The follower then mentioned that it was their birthday but no one had sung them "happy birthday" yet, and so they asked zebrapig4299. "I'll sing you 'happy birthday' but I'm going to apologise in advance because I'm terrible," they admitted, but their song was lovely, and the follower thanked them for their "beautiful" performance.

Then, the TikTok about this moment went viral, and people in their tens of thousands flocked to zebrapig4299's Twitch channel in a show of support. At the time of writing, the channel has more than 55,000 followers which will be quite the wonderful surprise when the streamer logs on next.
