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 mean its easy for you to clown it but you could take a look at braille revive youtubers and lump all of skateboarding into that bucket and say its all corny

My 17 year old nephew made $40k in 6 months of steaming Minecraft. Heís on twitch and YouTube, but his main thing is Tiktok I guess. I donít even have an Instagram or Facebook so I donít get it, but good on him I guess.

I feel you because skating was always the anti video game to me, in that video games are about mostly sitting on your ass at home and being passive, while skating is about physically leaving your comfort zone, literally moving around the real world and living experiences in the present. But I also know what rawbertson is trying to say because I'm nostalgic enough to have watched a few speedruns of games I grew up watching, and so I'm aware of streamers like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WkFn7zwfhY

I'm tempted to draw so many parallels with skating on such topics. As in, from 9:00 onwards, you could literally replace every instance of 'streaming' with 'professional skateboarding' (in its current inception at least, complete with the virtual aspect) and still hit the nail on its head when it comes to social analysis (maybe better than the average skater would due to lack of hindsight). As cooler as skating may be, on a personal level it's always healthy to expand your horizons, see how other more or less niche groups and cultures behave, struggle and learn from basic human mistakes, and then reconsider your own functioning from the newly acquired perspective depending on how much of the comparison happens to stick.

i worry for those kids for a few different reasons, some may be unfounded
there are a lot of creeps out there
also you dont really learn jack shit streaming 16 hrs a day... eventaully minecraft may fall off and you have to jump ship to new game etc. or the sources of revenue could significantly diminish over night. its not like twitch has a contract locked in with its users or even its "partners". like if you are really that good at networking and shit then i feel like you could make better money elsewhere but i undestand if its fun and what you want to do and the community you want to be part of . 80k a year is tight and i hope he can grow that even higher cause that is worth more than a lot of jobs but makes me wonder then what kind of abilities he has OUTSIDE of the game... that is typically what makes people have earning power in these communities is what can they bring to the table outside of the game.

its cool if the parents are heavily involved but they almost never seem to be
usually when the parents are involved they are very successful though like this really top streamer called ninja. i believe he is one of the highest earning of all time. some fortnite dweeb with purple hair or whatever. again easy for me to clown it but he loves what hes doing so i cant hate and he is killing it. apparently he was not allowed to play any games unless he had absolutely amazing marks in school and his parents heavily involved. iirc he was a high level player in some other FPS long time ago too so that helped him get in early for the strems

I follow twitch streamers and stay away from minecraft, dungeons and dragon, and league streams
Minecraft has the biggest ďstanĒ / follower culture and has a lot of incel and racist kids, the biggest guy is named Dream and at one point was openly a bigot

theres no money in just streaming , i know you ar ejust joking but you would have to be a pro first and then decide to pursue that if you wanted to make any decent coin. need some sort of way to get your foot in the door. have seen guys spend wild moiney on sick ass stream setups super involved but no one wants to wtach it cause they arent known players, evn though they are very good in their respective games there just isnt the revenue sources. those commericals pay out fuck all unless you have like 10k viewers
