Twitch Takes Traffic Hit Following Streamer Boycott Over Harassment

Yesterday, thousands of streamers abandoned Twitch for 24 hours in protest of its ongoing facilitation of harassment campaigns known as hate raids. While the Amazon-owned streaming platform has yet to implement proposed changes to the controversial raid system, it’s clear what some previously dismissed as a small movement has had a big impact, potentially costing Twitch roughly 22% of its peak concurrent traffic for the day.

Top Streamers Lose Millions Of Followers After Twitch Cracks Down On Viewbots

It’s no secret that Twitch has a problem with viewbots, which are fake viewers that artificially inflate streamers’ numbers. They’ve been part of the ecosystem for years, both as a means of making streamers look more popular than they are and, more recently, a tool trolls use maliciously to try to bring Twitch’s punitive wrath down on streamers they don’t like. Twitch, for its part, only acknowledged the issue sporadically. Until this week.

‘The crossover no one expected’ – UK streamer Bizzleberry duo queues with Ninja in League of Legends

UK League of Legends streamer Bizzleberry has teamed up with none other than global streaming star Ninja. One viewer (Jared Jackson) described it as “the crossover no one expected, but everyone wanted”. The pair played a few games in Platinum elo today on Bizzleberry’s Twitch channel (starting around the 6 hour 56 minute mark). They won both matches as a bot-lane duo, with Bizzle playing as Lulu and Ninja as Aphelios.

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.

Twitch Streamer Behind ‘Never-Ending’ Marathon Says He’ll Only Make A Small Fraction Of $470,000 Haul

For the past week and a half, Twitch star Ludwig Ahgren has been on the clock. Whether asleep, awake, or drowsily somewhere between, Ahgren has kept his stream running to fulfill the terms of a “subathon” where every subscription adds ten seconds to a timer. So far, he’s pulled in nearly $500,000. He says, however, that when it’s all said and done, he’ll see only a fraction of that money.
