Twitch: Streamer has been live for over a year and isn't thinking of quitting yet


It is not uncommon for a streamer to be live on Twitch for 24 hours without a break. This year, for example, Ludwig made headlines with his subathon, which he only finished after 716 hours. There is, however, another streamer that easily dwarfs these numbers. GPHustla has been live on Twitch for over a year since this week. Its stream duration is now 8,800 hours.

In the spirit of Big Brother, the Twitch streamer transmits almost everything from his everyday life. When he has to leave the house, he takes his viewers with him via his smartphone - otherwise you can see GPHustla on the PC while gambling, watching videos or chatting with his community. The project started with a classic 24-hour stream, which then grew steadily. His current goal is now 1,000 days that he would like to be live without interruption. So the end would not be reached until May 12, 2023. In the event of a power or internet failure, he continues to stream via his mobile phone. But that has not happened too often, as GPHustla tells in an interview with Dexerto.

Several well-known names in the Twitch scene have already noticed the 24/7 streamer. Including MontanaBlack as well as Ludwig or MoistCr1tikal. GPHustla's channel currently has over 58,000 followers.

"I'm really happy with what I'm doing and believe that I'm not just doing it for myself. There are some people who have told me that I inspire them every time because I still I'm live. I know there are a lot of people who wish they could do what I'm doing here and don't get the chance. Life is short and I don't need much to be happy. "

Amouranth: Top female gamer on Twitch has home set on fire in suspected arson attack

A top female gamer on the streaming site Twitch has said that her home was set on fire in what investigators suspect could have been an arson attack.

Kaitlyn Siragusa, known as Amouranth, lives in Houston, Texas, according to her website, and plays video games live on Twitch, where she has four million followers, making her the most-watched woman on the site, Kotaku reported.

Apart from gaming, she also streams real-life stunts, interacting with viewers while sitting in a hot tub, and ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) content.

She tweeted on Saturday morning that part of her house had caught fire on Friday night, but that she and her pets were okay.

“There was a fire along the side of my home originating from the area where my trashcan is kept,” she wrote. “The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but investigators strongly suspect arson.”

“They are reviewing surveillance footage, neighbours’ surveillance footage and possibly other videos adjacent to the area to try and catch the potential suspect,” she continued in a subsequent tweet. “This is not the first time something like this has happened.”

She wrote that last year, someone had “tried to shoot fireworks at my house under the guise of July 4th festivities. Said person was intercepted before he could actually do the act (caught red-handed tho[ough]) and arrested”.

The Twitch streamer also said she experiences a “garden variety of swatting on a weekly basis”, which is a type of harassment when someone lies to emergency services and sends law enforcement or other first responders to someone else’s address.

She said she has a “good working relationship with law enforcement” and encouraged other streamers to “be proactive, talk to them, they won’t understand but having your location ‘flagged’ can mean all the difference in a tense stand-off type situation, literal life and death”.

“You might want or set up like a safe or password so they can (such as in my situations) know when it’s a ‘real threat’ and to roll in full force,” she added.
