Twitch: beyond streaming

In the past two years not everything has been working according to plan, and I’m ok with it. 

Since I started using Twitch I’ve always closely followed a couple of streamers. It’s actually funny, in what I can only describe as a chain of events. I’ve meet one streamer, and with interaction with that person and their chat I came across another streamer, then another from the second one and so on.

I can’t really remember why I came across Julia_tv or what she was playing at the time but what I remember is that from her stream I came across some amazing people. Even to this day I drop into Julia’s stream to watch some gameplay and have some fun with the community.
From Julia I meet Pancakesandwaff, which at the time had this amazing Indie Games playthroughs, from there I’ve meet Rosalera, and then Psyche and her community.

Usually I either am too tired or occupied to come to Twitch after a day of work, other times the streaming schedule of certain streamers don’t coincide with my free time, and even some other times I choose to play some game having only the stream in the background. I’ve even started, in the past few months, to watch some vods in my free time, so I could compensate what I’ve missed while I was away.

Recently I’ve been home for health reasons and sure being home sick is unpleasant, specially after a surgical procedure, but I have to say that the past couple weeks have been without equal. Be able to keep up with my favorite stream on a daily basis and be part of every great moment is the best thing I could had wished for in this less bright time in my life.
Obviously it depends on the content, and more importantly it depends on the community, but it all comes down to the person heading the stream.

I have to recognize those that have helped me heal in this particular moment, with whom I had the most fun and the best moments in the past few years. Thank you for being around, for being who you are and for making your streams, your content and your community something to go back to.


And to those that chat, lurk or simply come around this streamers, thank you for being part of the community and making everyone’s day better just for being there and contribute.
