    Consistent 150k+ concurrent viewers, over 46k subs and counting, MASS Twitch Prime subs spam, it reminds me of the Ninja hype. Never thought a political commentator would be getting this type of hype. Dude's made millions in 2020...

    You made me Google that. He is by birth, but much like his uncle Cenk, he's now an apostate atheist.

    Yeah, LOL. He's very much new money. I'm sure he'll get a nice place eventually... :)

    This guy is a nobody who just happens to have won the boredom-click for the one day every four years that people who aren't political pay attention to politics. He averaged fewer than 15K viewers for his stream last month, in Twitch's most popular section, and that was in the month leading up to an election:

    People log on to Twitch to watch the news?

    What a strange world we live in.

    IIRC he never actually got banned for it, just got a TON of backlash for it.

    YouTube back in 2015(?) had a growing live streaming section that dealt with IRL streamers. To retain their live streaming viewership monopoly Twitch created their own IRL section. Which then eventually morphed into the Just Chatting section for their IRL streamers were getting into legal troubles.

    I don't even like the guy, believe it or not (there's a bit of a rift between the social democrat/populist types like Kyle Kulinski and Krystal Ball* and the far left types like Hasan and Vaush as well as their respective fans). But he's doing really well right now. He got a BIG bump from the AOC appearance which he set up. He's always at the top of Twitch lately. And even the 15k figure is top of the food chain for what he does. Other political commentators on Twitch like Bad Bunny get like 200-400 concurrent viewers and have to beg people (or scream at/shame people in her case) for subs and shit. Hasan's doing like Pokimane type numbers now.

    *Vaush went so far as to say "Krystal Ball is a fucking Nazi!"

    Kulinksi and Ball are also airheaded far-leftists. I don't know anything about these other guys, so I'll just assume they're the even dumber, more extreme versions that appeal to the ignorant tweener Twitch crowd based on what you said. There are always levels.

    I'm usually someone who finds myself defending the gaming community, but if we approach this soberly, Twitch's general base of viewers are the least likely to be employed, the least likely to be informed, the least likely to be involved with government, and the least likely to have deep real-life social networks. Twitch's core are kids who sit around spamming scroll-walls that wheel by so fast even speed-readers can't keep up, and who throw away their allowance money on the prayer it will buy someone's attention for five seconds.

    Politicians will keep their fingers on the pulse because they always wants to know what's trending with youths, but they are concerned only with pandering to win votes, here. This crowd brings nothing else to the table. They're the least capable of martialing a meaningful support network of just about any American consumer base in existence.
