After confirming that she had indeed achieved nine million followers on Twitch, an elated Pokimane celebrated onstream with her followers. "Thank you. Merci, Gracias. Shukran," the streamer said, thanking everyone who had supported her on the platform.

As she continued to thank her followers in multiple languages, her Follower Count continued to grow before she started her Grand Theft Auto V segment.
