Mr Beast & Moistcr1tikal slam Twitch for spitting on streamers
Mr Beast and Moistcr1tkal have slammed Twitch for “spitting” on creators while YouTube makes huge improvements, as the competition between Twitch and YouTube Gaming continues to heat up.
There have been several options for streaming over the years, but Twitch has dominated for quite some time. Other competitors have come and gone, but YouTube appears to be putting a dent in Twitch’s stranglehold.
YouTube has acknowledged that they’ve been working with streamers to introduce Twitch-like features to the site, including Gifted Memberships, the ability to raid other channels, and more, after signing a few of Twitch’s biggest personalities.
While YouTube has changed, Twitch has remained mostly unchanged, even ignoring streamer opposition and pushing forward with the contentious sponsored boost function. Moistcr1tkal and Mr. Beast have even accused the Amazon-backed site of “spitting” in the faces of creators.
Twitch is “spitting” in the artists’ faces.
It’s like they want YouTube to win haha— MrBeast (@MrBeast) October 29, 2021
With streaming legends like TimTheTatMan, Valkyrae, and DrLupo already using YouTube as a legitimate streaming platform, the site can now boast of having some of the scene’s biggest names on its side and is narrowing the gap on Twitch.
“Twitch doesn’t have the streaming monopoly it thinks it has,” Moistcr1tkal said in a sharp response to YouTube’s plans to improve its streaming platform in 2022.
“YouTube is making significant movements,” the video producer said, as “Twitch keeps spitting on its broadcasters” by dismissing their complaints. Mr. Beast joked that Twitch “wants them (YouTube) to win” by remaining motionless.
While Twitch hasn’t made any obvious attempts to stop YouTube’s streaming growth, Moist noted that if major changes aren’t made soon, “they will have some serious competition.” With YouTube dominating traditional video content generation methods, bringing on more streamers can only help the platform into a bold, new age. YouTube’s first concepts may have been influenced by Twitch, but who knows what may happen in the future.
