The business model of Twitch is that viewers “subscribe” to their favourite streamers. Some of the proceeds go to the streamers (which is how professional streamers support themselves) and some of it stays with Twitch. I haven’t been subscribing to any streamers, in one part because I’m cheap and in one part because I find Twitch’ business practices vaguely exploitative.
Yesterday, I was watching Sacriel stream PUBG (which I’ve written about earlier) and I made a (gentle) rib on him, and he ribbed back. His chat is really busy, so I didn’t think he would pick out that off-handed remark from me. His response made me decide to drop him a sub.
