5. Oldest (Age) Twitch Streamer
At 86 years old, Helga Sofie Josefa or “marmeladenoma” may be the oldest Twitch streamer on the entire platform. The name translates as “The Jam Granny” and she reads fairy tales to her viewers as well as stories of her childhood in the IRL section of Twitch.
The idea was thanks to her grandson, Janik, who takes care of the technical side of things, while she reads the stories, reminding viewers of the days when their grandparents read bedtime stories to them.
Marmeladenoma rose to fame when popular German YouTube creator, Gronkh shouted her out and donated 250 euros during one of her livestreams. As of now, the German grandmother has amassed around 45,000 Twitch followers and nearly 200,000 YouTube subscribers and she has even won the 2017 Germany Web Video Award in the Livestream category. It seems like fairy tales do come true.
4. Most Watched Clip
Twitch streamer, JurassicJunkieLive, got the scare of his life while livestreaming the first-person survival horror game, Outlast 2. That happened when his two-year-old daughter walked in the room at a frightening moment to deliver a drink to him, however, he was completely oblivious due to wearing headphones.
The timing was perfect and in his own words, JurassicJunkieLive wrote in a post, “Due to my headphones I never heard her enter the room. At this point a crow jumped up in the game and made me scream, I then looked down to see a devil child looking back at me and screamed blue murder.”
To this date, the clip has over 2.5 million views and he went from 100 followers to a couple of thousand in just 24 hours after the clip blew-up on Reddit. I can imagine his daughter got the blame that night for when he pooped himself following the scare.
3. Longest Twitch Stream
A Twitch streamer, who goes by the name of “ThisFudginGuy” may have the unofficial World record of having the longest Twitch stream at an impressive 160 hours, which is nearly one whole week straight.
This surpasses the previous unofficial record of 136 hours that was set by World of Warcraft streamer, Ryan Lenk or “rlenk” on Twitch.
The reason why ThisFudginGuy was able to stream so long without the need to sleep is because he suffers from insomnia, a condition in which a person has difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.
2. Highest Single Donation
Many viewers like to support their favourite streamers by donating money; 5, 10, 20 dollars maybe but how about $100,000? Team 10-member, Chance Sutton, or “FrostyT10G” as he’s known by in the Twitch community got the surprise of his life when he received a $100,000 donation while streaming the highly popular game, Fortnite: Battle Royale.
He doesn’t notice the donation at first, however, when he does he immediately starts freaking out. So, who was this mystery donator, you may have wondered? Well, it turned out to be none other than Team 10 leader, Jake Paul, as he revealed in a video titled, “I DONATED $200K TO MY FAV TWITCH STREAMER”.
It’s uncertain whether the donation was genuine or not but if you ask me, the whole thing was probably a publicity stunt for the launch of Team 10 Gaming. But, that’s just my opinion. Maybe Jake Paul would have been better off renaming his video to “I DONATED $200K TO MYSELF (insane reaction)” … not to forget the “insane reaction” in brackets.
1. Most Viewers For An Individual Streamer
Now Fortnite streamer and ex-professional Halo player, Tyler Blevins, best known by the alias, “Ninja” is constantly breaking records on Twitch. Not only has he become the most followed streamer with over 4 million followers but he set a new milestone in terms of peak concurrent viewers for an individual broadcaster when he played some Fortnite: Battle Royale with none other than rapper, Drake.
Rapper, Travis Scott and NFL player, JuJu Smith-Schuster later joined in on the action and the livestream peaked at a staggering 628,000 viewers, smashing the previous record of 388,000 when the self-proclaimed “Face of Twitch”, Dr. DisRespect, made his return to the Twitch scene.
Ninja’s records don’t end there as he is set to be the first solo Twitch streamer to earn a whopping $1 million a month from Twitch subs alone.
