Who is TommyInnit

Thomas Simons, known by his social media moniker TommyInnit, is a YouTube gaming influencer, content creator, and live streamer from England. His content focuses on Minecraft videos and live streams, including collaborations with other prominent YouTube gamers and streamers. Thomas joined the Dream SMP, causing the massive growth of his YouTube and Twitch channels.

Thomas was born in Nottingham, England, and attended a local school there. As a child, he already loved playing video games, and his hobby turned into a full-time profession when he entered the influencer and content creation industry.

He launched his first channel, Channelnutpig, in February 2013, and his current channel, TommyInnit, on December 24, 2015. He then uploaded his first video three years later, in September 2018. Most of his videos are Minecraft gameplay. Additionally, he began his Twitch Minecraft live streams in late 2018.

In July 2020, the influencer joined Dream SMP, a Minecraft server run by the YouTube gamer Dream. The server focuses on Minecraft roleplays. The following year, Thomas live-streamed The Dream SMP Finale, which accumulated over 650K viewers, placing third as the highest all-time concurrent viewer livestream on Twitch. The Finale overtook the Ninja and Drake’s Fortnite collaboration.

Aside from live streaming and filming content, Thomas co-authored a book with streamer Wilbur Soot entitled “TommyInnit Says…The Quote Book.” All the book sales went directly to the Sarcoma Foundation of America in honor of their late friend Technoblade.

The English gamer’s online success amassed him 14.5M subscribers on YouTube, 12M followers on TikTok, 4.2M on Twitter, and 3M on Instagram.
