Startup companies these days entice investors using numbers, in the case of online service and app startups, high user subscription/followers is what brings value and visibility. Word on the street was that Twitch was once a tiny and highly unsecure office back in its early days, with such a strong lack of security that someone even got away with stealing complete PC setups there without any delays.

Twitch follows likes count drop decrease

A channel I help produce has lost a lot of Twitch followers or likes in what seems overnight. It was just a big decrease and we were like “WTH M8!”.

The speculation train started quickly, but before I read or heard anything I guessed that Twitch was removing bot accounts. There are a lot of bots on Twitch. Just like there are a lot of bots on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. There is always a war to defeat them to help the environment and economy of social sites.

We now have confirmation that Twitch.Tv has indeed made some changes that are reflecting the loss of followers for most streamers.

Here is a link to the Reddit post incase you want to join in!

Why not have Star Wars emotes with Battlefront launching and Episode 7 coming out. How about some pizza roll emotes with eyeballs? I’m in.

I’m not sure if it has anything to do with the bizarre Totino’s Pizza Roll ads that we love dearly at EPG.

Try out these commands in Twitch.Tv chat to help get your chat on.

Starting Friday at 9am the Super Nintendo Charity Challenge will start streaming live on Twitch as they attempt to defeat several Super Nintendo games in an effort to raise money for children in hospitals on behalf of Child’s Play; a charity that has raised 34 million dollars over the past 10 years to purchase toys, games and other fun things to hospitals to offset the un-fun time children have while in the hospital.

The charity has raised almost 35 million dollars over the past 10 years

Super Nintendo Charity is led by Mike Hannemann and Alex Russell. 2015 will mark the third year that Mike and Alex have done this marathon, but they won’t do it alone; they have enlisted 7 other players to help play games in shifts so that no one gets too delirious.
The games that the charity will be playing vary in game type but they are all on Super Nintendo. They will be starting with Donkey Kong Country and ending with Home Alone when the marathon ends on Monday, November 9th. All the games that are being played are listed according to a specific schedule. Speed runs will be allowed as one of the gamers Mike Sherry has stated he will attempt to beat Chrono Trigger in about 8 hours (average time to beat is currently 13 hours)

The Super Nintendo Charity will be streamed live on Twitch for everyone to view and hopefully that will drive in more donations. You can donate 10, 25, 50, 100 or a custom amount depending on your generosity and budget. Every dollar helps Child’s Play and will be appreciated no matter the size of the donation.
This looks like it will be a good time and what better way to raise money than play video games for 72 hours? You can check out the Super Nintendo Charity event here

Let’s start with an introduction. I’m Johnny Luchador, you may remember me from such ventures on the internet as being the guy with a luchador mask who streamed over on that robot gaming website, or you may know me from my stream the Video Game Circus. You may also know me for my truthful reviews of games I’ve never played, or my scale of 13 outta 4 Hacksaw Jim Duggin ratings. Anywho, I’m here to give you another wonderful review of a video game. I hope you enjoy my straight forward approach as I won’t bullshit you, I’ll tell you if the game is dumb or if the game is worth buying a large box of Little Debbie snack cakes and take a bath in them while you play the newly purchased game because it was rad.
