Twitch was Hacked. Change your password if you use it elsewhere
« on: October 06, 2021, 07:41:11 AM »
just got this message from my friend

Change your Twitch passwords. The entire site has been compromised. Source code, usernames, passwords, streamer revenue data, unreleased Steam competitor software, everything. If you reused the password elsewhere, change it there, too. https://www.reddit.com/r/LivestreamFail/comments/q2gooi/twitchtv_got_leaked_like_the_entire_website

its legit

Wow I had no idea how much the top streamers bring in. #1 is almost 10mil and that's not including any sponsors. Curious to see what the skate streamers (Nine Club, Jaws, Tom Asta, etc.) bring in, if anything at all.

I would guess nothing at all, or very very little. The leaked streamer payouts include the top 10,000 streamers, the low end of which is around $24,000 in just over 2 years, and these streamers are much bigger (on the platform) than someone like Jaws or Tom Asta.

I used it once like 4 years ago, so annoying.
