Report: Twitch Is Hacked And Its Source Code Is In The Wild

According to a report by VGC, an anonymous hacker has posted a 125GB torrent link containing, well, all of Twitch, including its source code and commit history going back to the start. The leak also contains streamers’ incomes since 2019, and information that suggests the Amazon-owned streaming platform’s Steam rival Vapor may really exist.

Bandai Namco Changed Its Logo And Fans Think It Kinda Sucks

In 2005, Bandai and Namco merged, and the following year, Bandai Namco was born. To mark the new conglomerate, the company got a yellow, red, and orange logo with the company’s name in white font. It’s not a bad look, and stands out among Japanese game companies. But next year, Bandai Namco is getting a redesigned logo, and so far, the buzz is not good.

Twitch Responds To Recent Tough Streamer Issues With Corporate Guff

Over the last few days, Twitch streamers from marginalized groups have taken to Twitter to appeal to the Amazon-owned company to start doing something meaningful about the serious issues of harassment on the platform. In response, Twitch put up a Twitter thread saying it will engage in “open and ongoing dialogue.” All together: Siiiiiggghhhh.

Streamers Are Rallying Behind ‘Twitch Do Better’

Over the past few days, you might have seen the #TwitchDoBetter hashtag pick up steam on social media networks like Twitter. You might’ve further wondered why it’s popping now, and what it’s all about. Twitch is a company, after all, and companies can always, always do better.

After Nonstop 31-Day Stream, Ludwig Breaks Ninja’s All-Time Twitch Subscriber Record

For 31 days, Ludwig Ahgren’s stream has been up and running all day every day. He hasn’t been awake the entire time, but he and his moderators have ensured that it’s grown to be one of Twitch’s most consistent and comforting presences—albeit one that is probably taking a not-insignificant mental and physical toll on everyone involved. Since the beginning, a timer has been counting down to zero, but every time somebody kicks in a subscription, ten seconds get added to the clock. Now Ahgren has more subscriptions than anybody else in Twitch history.
