Twitch Streamers Make Money Despite Not Functioning Properly: Media

Twitch streamers make thousands by just sleeping

The latest trend that has taken over Amazon’s live streaming service Twitch seems to be sleeping, wherein the streamers are minting money by literally sleeping, the media has reported.

Over the last few weeks, Twitch streamers have been training their cameras on their mattresses as they doze off.

In the intervening hours, viewers use Twitch’s donation function to gift them small quantities of money – two dollars here, five dollars there. A couple of streamers cutely refer to them as “slumber parties”, Arc Technica reported on Sunday.

Sleep streams draw more from ASMR videos or Japanese cuddle cafes, where patrons pay hourly fees to feel intimacy with someone they have never met.

Recently, Twitch’s category for just talking, as opposed to gaming, has gained meteoric popularity in part because thousands of viewers at any given moment crave parasocial interaction.
