Sodapoppin is the online handle of Chance Morris, a Twitch streamer and YouTuber best known for his streams in the MMORPG World of Warcraft, as well as IRL and vlog content. Sodapoppin is a Twitch partner and one of its biggest streamers, with millions of followers and hundreds of millions of views since joining the platform in its early stages around 2012.
Sodapoppin’s first foray into professional gaming began when he created and posted WoW videos to YouTube and WarCraftMovies around mid-2012. Shortly after, Sodapoppin began streaming on Xfire and his YouTube channel where performed various antics and dares from viewers in exchange for money. He then migrated to Twitch later on in 2012 where he brought along his fanbase and was quickly offered a partnership with Twitch. After seeing so much success early on, he dropped out of college and pursued a career as a full-time streamer, as he already had hundreds of thousands of followers.
On January 2nd, 2013, Sodapoppin uploaded a video (seen below) to his YouTube channel titled “Snow for the first time!” and received over 290,000 views in seven years.
July 2020 Twitch Ban and Apology Video
On July 20th, 2020, Sodapoppin received a temporary ban and suspension from Twitch, who gave no explanation as to why (similar to Dr Disrespect’s 2020 Twitch Ban in June). Fans speculated that the cause stemmed from a recent VRChat stream with roflgator, who similarly received a temporary ban. Later that night, Sodapoppin tweeted “haha I know why I was banned and u don’t,” receiving over 27,000 likes in 24 hours. Shortly after, he then posted a sarcastic apology video on his YouTube (shown below), which was viewed more than 850,000 times in 24 hours.
Sodapoppin, born on February 15th, 1994, currently resides in Austin, Texas and has five siblings, as well as two dogs and a cat. His father and brother, DKane, occasionally appear on streams with him. Sodapoppin collaborates with several other streamers in the industry, perhaps most notably Greekgodx.
