It turns out that sleeping while streaming can actually be a fairly lucrative endeavor, as Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo revealed just how much he made throughout a recent Twitch broadcast.

Content creators are always trying to push the boundaries of what’s possible through streaming in order to stand out from the pack. Whether that’s involving WWE superstars in their streams or simply cosplaying as their favorite celebrities, there’s always something new to look out for.

Attempting to stand out from the crowd in a rather hassle-free way, however, popular streamer Mizkif decided to keep the cameras rolling while he got under the covers and had a sleep. Surprisingly, it turned out to be extremely lucrative.

Twitch: Mizkif
Mizkif was laying in bed for roughly five hours on-stream.

After sitting in front of his camera entertaining viewers for three hours during a March 3 stream, Mizkif decided to mix things up a bit. He repositioned his camera, dragged some bedding into the room, and switched the lights off before saying goodnight to those in his chat.

With media share still active throughout his snooze, viewers would donate in order to play anything and everything they could think of to potentially wake him up and get under his skin.

For just over five hours the streamer laid there relatively silent and shortly after sitting back at his desk, Mizkif shared with his viewers how much money he raised while doing nothing of significance.

Volume warning for the clip below.

 

$5,594 was the final tally of donations for the stream which involved Mizkif “literally sleeping,” as he bluntly put it.

“I literally slept, and I made five thousand five hundred dollars doing nothing. So next time you think about how much streamers make who get non-stop [text-to-speech], think about it.”

Rather than using all of the money for himself however, Mizkif decided to share the love with his generous viewers and hand out a Nintendo Switch console to one lucky viewer.

 

Evidently an effective means of making money on the platform, this certainly isn’t the first time a Twitch streamer has dozed off on camera in front of thousands.

From xQc’s 35 hour broadcast to one unlucky streamer waking up with one of the most-viewed clips on the platform, sleeping on Twitch definitely has done a world of good for a number of streamers.

KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
