Twitch star Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo collaborated with Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa for her March 11 IRL stream, where he comically pretended to “moderate” the real world.

Twitch has a variety of popular streaming personalities that draw in large audiences to their platform. However, sometimes streamers will come together to collaborate much to their viewers’ excitement.

This is what happened during Amouranth’s March 11 broadcast, when Mizkif and Esfand joined her in-real-life session. And things took a hilarious turn when they began to act like her bodyguards and moderate the public.

The two popular streamers teamed up for an IRL broadcast where they went out shopping at a local store. However while waiting in line to check out with their items, an employee asked Amouranth what she was doing with the camera.

“Is that a camera?” they asked, to which the Twitch star responded, “Yeah, on the phone. We do like streaming and vlogging and stuff. That’s our job.” Mizkif then cut in and hilariously said “That’s her job.  We just pay for stuff!”

The group then began to walk around the female streamer with their gaming headsets on, and claimed to be her bodyguards. “Just moderate the area,” Esfand told Mizkif, as the two circled the around pretending to be her protection.

While most of her chat was in hysterics over their antics, a couple of viewers in her chat were not too pleased with her collaboration broadcast. The streamer then roasted the concerned members of her audience.

“One of my viewers just typed in your chat ‘These guys are not meant for you Amouranth, you need to leave!'” Mizkif told her. She then replied “That sounds like any time I leave my house ever. They are like ‘You need to go home, where you are safe and not going to find a soulmate that isn’t me!’ That is what they are all about.”

Despite the naysayers, the IRL broadcast continued with the group having a great time. Earlier in the stream, Amouranth revealed that a question she gets asked all the time is “What do you do for fun besides stream?” which caused everyone to break out into laughter. She added “People always ask me that question!”

Collaborative broadcasts can bring in big viewership numbers, as streaming personalities working side-by-side also means bringing their large audiences together.

The IRL meetup between Amouranth and Mizkif pulled in over 10k viewers at one point. At the time of writing both stars have over 1.8 million followers on the platform combined.

Cyberpunk 2077 stands by streamers amid Twitch DMCA controversy

The Cyberpunk 2077 team at CD Projekt RED have confirmed that streamers will not have to worry about the new heavy DMCA regulations on Twitch when streaming their game, as the soundtrack has been built from scratch.

Twitch streamers were left frustrated and worried on October 21, after a wave of DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) warnings were sent regarding their past VODs and clips, with some even being deleted.

Creators are now resorting to drastic measures to protect their channels and ensure their ability to upload future content, after it was discovered that past streams are now being picked apart. For many that means erasing the vast majority of their old content.

This included popular streamer Pokimane who said “Today, tomorrow, at some point, you guys are going to come across my channel and there’s going to be zero content. Sucks to say, but it is what it is.”

This is concerning particularly for gaming streamers, who may play a game like Grand Theft Auto, where copyrighted music is played in the game world, through car radios etc. But the team behind the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077 have eased that concern for their upcoming game.

Twitch variety broadcaster DansGaming asked the developers whether the game would have a “streamer mode” that would allow creators the “option to mute Copyrighted Music that is licensed for the game so content creators don’t get DMCAs.”

The team replied that while there are more details to come in the near future, “our soundtrack has been created from the scratch – this includes all tracks from the numerous artists we work with. Their music has been made specifically for our game making this a bit smoother hopefully.”

This is no doubt a huge relief to both creators and the developers, as streamers will be able to dive into what looks to be one of the biggest games of the year worry-free, and devs will be able to benefit from the amazing community that can emerge thanks to streamers.

Streamer DrLupo praised the developers, saying “they gave the go-ahead to content creators, they’re f**king smart, they made it all [the music].”

CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world action-adventure RPG, set in the dystopian Night City, and is due to release on November 19.
