100 Thieves streamer Rachel 'Valkyrae' Hofstetter has set her Twitter to private after being 'targeted by a stalker'. 

The 29-year-old Tweeted to her 1.6 million followers, saying: "Unfortunately I have to keep my account private until this delusional stalker dies. He's made hundreds of accounts for months. Would love if Twitter had blocking options where the user can't interact with an account that has blocked another account from the same device or something'. 

Fans and friends have flooded her Tweet with supportive replies, with @brookeab saying: "so ridiculous that there is no help for things like this. So sorry, Rae. I know how you feel, big hugs". 

Another added: "Wtf is wrong with people??? I'm so sorry this is happening to you Rae".

This isn't the first time that she's set her account to private. In late December, the popular Twitch streamer was playing Rust with fifty other huge content creators such as Michael "shroud" Grzesiek and Imane "Pokimane" Anys, but around three hours in she announced: “I’m gonna end stream. I’m not having fun streaming.”

Fans had noticed that during the stream she didn’t look particularly happy, and was silent a couple of times before announcing her departure. 

After going offline, she set her Twitter account to private for a few hours. However, she did reinstate it. This time, it looks like it's more permanent.
