Noted Twitch star “Invadervie” admitted to scouring the online profiles of her regular contributors, leading to some interesting results concerning the demographics of her viewer base.

It’s no secret that many online personalities cater to specific audiences, from YouTube beauty gurus to professional gamers and even cosplayers — but while these categories might appear to have obvious viewer types, Invadervie’s audience boasts a surprising majority.

Invadervie is a popular face on Twitch, known for her Just Chatting streams and humorous interactions with fans in her chat.

Popular Twitch streamer “Invadervie” revealed the surprising majority of her donators during a January 21 Twitch stream.

However, many of these fans aren’t who you’d expect, as she admitted in a broadcast on January 21.

According to the streamer, much of her audience is made up of adult men in relationships, many of whom work in technology fields.

“I only really keep track of the people who support me,” she revealed. “The people who support me are usually men in relationships or actively dating, between the ages of I think 25 to maybe 42. They usually work in tech. A lot of engineers are in here right now. It’s really crazy.”

According to Invadervie, her regular donators are largely made up of adult men in long-term relationships.

To find this information, she admitted to scouring the Linkedin and social media accounts of those who donate to her stream via PayPal, claiming that she Googles their names to learn more about exactly who is supporting her content.

“When you guys dono to me, it tells me your name that is attached to your PayPal,” she explained. “If your name is attached to your PayPal, and you dono to me, I look you up on Google. I Google each and every one of your names, and I creep your Linkedins.”

She didn’t pass up an opportunity to roast these donators, either, after a fan asked her for her audience’s average “maturity level.”

“Oh, did you not know that men reach peak maturity exactly three months after death?” she replied.

Although it’s generally a good idea to keep tabs on one’s target audience, the demographics of Invadervie’s regular donators may not reflect those from her average viewers — but rest assured, she isn’t slacking on putting a face to the name of fans who support her cause.

After an onslaught of hateful comments, David Dobrik has responded to the backlash he faced for claiming that he “hates nature” on his Views podcast with Jason Nash.

As a huge YouTuber known for massive giveaways and wholesome content, Dobrik’s comments, if at all negative, can cause a stir among his fans. In the episode in question, Dobrik explains at length why he “hates nature,” and how outdoor activities really don’t do it for him.

“I cannot describe to you how much I f***ing hate nature,” Dobrik said. “I never knew I could be so angry at something. I was hiking in the mountains, and everybody I saw, I was just getting angry at. I was like, ‘Why are you here?’ I was so mad!”

“It feels so wrong because everybody loves nature,” he continued. “…what is so cool about something that’s been there… for millions of years! What is so cool about that? …it feels like everything I’ve worked for has been erased. I’m stuck with the dirt and the grass and the leaves.”

Angry commenters described Dobrik as “close-minded”

Angry commenters had a lot to say about his opinions on the world around him and on his attitude about something as mundane as nature.

“I don’t justify it, but now I understand the hate that you get for being so closed-minded and kind of a d**k to your friends or the planet,” one person wrote. “I know that you have done great things like charities and donations. But DUDE, grow up a bit, you live in a bubble.”

(Topic begins at 5:45)

But in the latest episode of Views with fellow YouTuber Jason Nash, they discussed the backlash Dobrik faced and read out Dexerto’s article on the subject.

Dobrik explained that fans misunderstood his intentions: “I said I didn’t like nature and by this, I didn’t mean that I don’t care about the ecosystem where I think you shouldn’t recycle and I think you should litter. It was like I just literally do not care for walks.”

“I wasn’t joking about the actual nature but I was kind of like you guys are gonna really hate me for this. I didn’t think people would actually get mad and people are pissed.”

Since the latest episode has aired, angry commenters are nowhere to be seen. It seems that the adamant defenders of nature walks have been appeased.
