Twitch is making changes to their IRL and Creative sections in an attempt to make content easier to find.

The tags are being removed in favor of more specific categories, but some streamers are not happy about the changes.


IRL was a catch-all category that hosted everything that was not streamers playing video games. Categories like ‘Travel & Outdoors’ and ‘Just Chatting’ are among the new classifications, but IRL streamer JakeNBake is worried there is no longer a category for him.

He addressed Twitch directly with his concerns.


Yo Twitch, hey, my name is Jake and I’m one of the streamers that does IRL, In Real Life. I stream my life, dude. You’re going to split us up into Travel and Outdoors? ‘Hey what’s up I’m a travel and outdoors streamer?’ No, I’m not dude. I stream my life.

JakeNBake made his comments while travelling in Shanghai, China, before leaving for Las Vegas. He plans to return to his home in Tokyo, after visiting Los Angeles.

Still, he wants the old categories to stay and left no doubt on his opinion.

Twitch, you better keep the f**kin IRL section, because I stream my life. I know there’s only a few of us, that’s fine. Let us shine, because we are the future of streaming.

Twitch’s official description of the Travel & Outdoors category is below.


Whether exploring a new city or just hanging out in your hometown, this category covers all of your walking-and-talking needs.

At this time, it is not clear how they will handle streamers who are active in a variety of the new categories. The changes to the IRL section of Twitch are expected to go live in mid-September.


TimTheTatman catches T Pain roasting him on Twitch stream

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar is used to being roasted by his friends on Twitch — but he probably didn’t expect US rapper T-Pain to get in on the action, too, and Tim found the whole ordeal hilarious.

In recent years, T Pain has become more and more of a prominent figure in the Twitch community, regularly getting involved with top streamers and creating some fun content.


He’s also become well-renowned on the platform for his rap intros, dropping some heat as the fans come piling in, but more recently he decided to take some friendly shots at Tim after being hosted by him — and, of course, Tim caught wind of it.

While some big names might not be able to handle the banter all that well, Tim absolutely loves it, and apparently it’s no different when you’re being roasted by a Grammy-winning recording artist, either.

T-Pain has been steadily growing his audience on Twitch.

As soon as he switched his stream on, Tim was sent the clip of T-Pain roasting him from when he hosted him the night before, so reacted to it for everyone to see.

“It’s amazing that he goes live so early. Like, before I wake up,” the rapper said. “And every time I click on his sh*t, he’s eating. Just eating some salads. So that’s fine.”

Although it seemed like it was going to end on a positive note, T-Pain continued: “Good job Tim, sticking with the salads. I’m really questioning if they’re salads. He’s always got his food right out of frame… but thank you [for the host], I really appreciate that man.”

Obviously, the roast is all in good spirits, and you can see Tim’s reactions varying throughout the clip. He starts off laughing before simply saying “oh come on, bro” as T-Pain speculated about the legitimacy of his salads, but once again finds himself in hysterics as he gets mocked.

There’s definitely no bad blood between the two, and to his credit, T-Pain probably has a lot more in the locker if he really wanted to go in on Tim, but we don’t doubt Tim could give as good as he gets, too.
