Imane “Pokimane” Anys is a Moroccan-Canadian Internet Personality. She is mostly known for her Twitch streams and youtube videos. She is also a member of OfflineTV, a group of Social Media Stars. Pokimane is one of the first streamers who got famous in the Just Chatting category of Twitch.
Pokimane had earlier taken to Twitter to express her thoughts and views over Streamlabs’ accusations that made it clear the platform copied the work of a competitor and used OBS’ name.
Streamlabs had then come to light of several malpractices since then. Some claim that staff were fired for speaking up against the practices, including one situation where one was allegedly terminated immediately after Twitch Con “for ‘being stubborn’ about making it wheelchair accessible.”
Users were also unknowingly being charged for premium service Streamlabs+ which went purposely unresolved “because of how much it made.”
Streamlabs has finally made a formal statement on Twitter, that made promises about changing the name of their product. “We are taking immediate action to remove OBS from our name,” reads the comment.
“Streamlabs OBS is built on top of the OBS open-source platform; Streamlabs OBS is also open source, and our code is publicly available. We take responsibility for our actions and will support the community.”
