Yeah right. Not even Twitch is stupid enough to do that.

My guess? They leaked the proposal on purpose, so they can then implement something else, and go "w-we listened to our userbase! and we're vewwy sowwy! we won't do that horrible, horrible thing, so we'll do this instead" as if that wasn't their main idea all along.

If they are stupid enough... Well, I guess we'll find out if YouTube is ready for the large influx of streamers.

I'd hate to see the YouTube monopoly growing even bigger though.

True, but as it stands, Twitch is still the absolute monarch of livestreaming. If YouTube takes a piece of that pie, I wouldn't mind. Most of the biggest streamers on Twitch already have a YouTube channel anyway, so it's not as if the exodus will bring that much new viewers.

Alternatively, I would be very amused if streamers decided to go to Pornhub instead. I can see degenerates like Sodapoppin or Veibae do that for shits and giggles.



(There are already some V-Tuber streamers on Pornhub already, but for more, ah, adult streams. Projekt Melody, for example. No, I won't elaborate how I know that.)

Anyone surprised?

I'd be surprised if it did continue.

My guess, he got pissed at some perceived slight, bought the company to fix it, only to then realized that his problem was not that big of a problem as he thought it was.
And I'm guessing he thought bots were the issue.

He's in trouble either way, he definitely caused damage to Twitter, no chance we don't see a lawsuit happening.

So sad that Firefox is dying and Chrome just keeps on thriving, guess most people don't really care about their privacy.

Firefox is still must install for Android since you can actually install uBlock Origin addon to it.

I'm still using Chrome on desktop though because getting rid of that familiarity is too much of a hassle for me :biggrin:

It might also be based on Chromium numbers, instead of pure Chrome... Chromium is used in tons of browsers, including Opera and Edge. That surely ramps up the numbers pretty heftily.
