German streamer Marcel ‘Call of Duty and Fortnite player cleared the 35,000 mark this week.

Shroud, who took the platform’s top spot after the exodus of former Twitch superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins to Mixer, is currently more than 3,000 behind MontanaBlack88. The German star currently boasts 35,705 subscribers, according to metrics website Twitchtracker.

Eris regularly plays Fortnite – even using his popularity on the game to Grand Theft Auto in recent times.

The 31-year-old celebrated his milestone moment by changing his stream title to “Numero Uno” and tweeted out his behind-the-scenes streaming metrics. At the time of the tweet, the German star had 35,233 subscribers.

“World number one with the subs,” said MontanaBlack in German in his celebration tweet. “Let somebody imitate us.”

    “MontanaBlack passed me in subs? Oh, cool,” he said, barely taking his eyes off the equipment changes he was doing for his WoW character at the same time.

    There are also some doubts about who controls the top subscriber count due to the official numbers remaining hidden. While many believed shroud led the way until this week, Twitch Analysis suggests Guy ‘DrDisrespect‘ Beahm has the most with 35,374.

Twitch streamer mortified after showing his embarrassing search history

A small Twitch streamer was left embarrassed out of his mind after he accidentally revealed his search history during a recent broadcast.

Anyone who has ever streamed on Twitch is probably aware of how easy it can be to leak personal information. Direct messages, emails, files – anything on your computer screen can potentially be seen if you’re not careful.

While most experienced streamers take precautions to prevent sensitive content from being broadcast to the masses, others have to learn the hard way. Such was the case with ‘TisParker’ who revealed some awkward search history.

During a January 19 broadcast, the 20-year-old streamer clicked on the search bar in his web browser before taking a sip of his caffeinated beverage and cleaning his glasses.

Your search history is showing!

As this was going on, the seemingly oblivious streamer didn’t realize his search history was showing up, with the first query being “can you have sex in your car without breaking the law.”

The embarrassing search was spotted by viewers in TisParker’s chat who alerted the streamer.

“Search history, Parker!” he read before realizing what he had done.

He let out a soft gasp, closed the tab, and covered his mouth, clearly mortified by what he had allowed everyone watching to see.

For his part, however, the streamer was a good sport and laughed at his own misfortune. “MonkaS,” he said, referencing the sweaty pepe emote. “This is why we don’t Google stuff.”

Unfortunately, Parker deleted the rest of the VOD so we don’t know what else he had to say about revealing the search history, but judging by his reaction, he will be extra careful from this point on.

Of course, he is hardly the first streamer to show of their search history on stream. As Dexerto previously reported, Overwatch streamer ToxikLlama accidentally showed some awkward YouTube anime searches.

Given the content of both searches, it’s safe to say that although Parker’s was awkward, it could have been a lot worse. Just something to keep in mind for any aspiring streamers out there.
