As Twitch continues to grow and expand its influence among young people, politicians are also seizing the opportunity to use the platform as a way to reach new audiences. As part of our efforts to acquire voting rights US House of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (DN.Y.) Streamed the hit murder mystery game. Among us Twitch has 435,000 viewers.

You can imagine Streamer’s surprise as the number of subscribers continues to grow each day. This stunt will eventually deliver him for 31 consecutive days, the maximum number of Twitch subscribers previously set by Blevins. I broke the record.
Record-breaking streams also helped popularize lesser-known streaming methods on Twitch. Ludwig introduced the concept of “sleep streams” to viewers when he was streaming day and night. At one point, about 65,400 live viewers were watching just to see him lying on the bed of a red race car.

“Perfect” Mario Execution (April 7, 2021)
Speedrunning has long been a staple of Twitch. Not only can people record the unusual feats of streamers, but they also provide a place to hang out online for months, sometimes years, to complete play in one game. And while there are plenty of record-breaking amazing speedruns out there, one that stands out is the current world record for NES Super Mario Bros.
The mere idea of 4:54 Super Mario Bros. seemed like a dream. In theory, a 4:54 run was possible. YouTuber had Disassembled for each frame To show how you can do that. The only problem was that no one was confident that humans could do it. It wasn’t just about placing Mario perfectly within a pixel distance. Speedrunners also had to take advantage of glitches that required Mario to be placed in a specific location on the ending flagpole. This complicates execution and makes it the most difficult thing in the speed running community. However, Niftski did that in 2021., He succeeded in completing one of the most difficult runs in the history of speed runs.
