Popular Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins can more often than not be found streaming with a smile on his face, but there are some common questions from his viewers that frustrate him on a regular basis.
Twitch broadcasters will regularly receive comments, via their chat or donations, that they don’t particularly like for one reason or another - be it insulting, making reference to something they don’t want to talk about or something that they read or hear regularly and respond to often.
That is no different for Ninja, even though the 27-year-old is one of the most viewed and popular streamers on the platform - attracting thousands of viewers on a daily basis to watch him dominate in Fortnite.
What did Ninja tweet?
On April 12, the streaming giant revealed the three messages that he absolutely hates receiving on Twitch, posting on Twitter: “List your top three comments you hate seeing in your Twitch chat. Mine are: 1. How do I unsubscribe from this streamer? 2. Jesus, you look so tired 3. Ninja your trash khed [kid] get good.”
Ninja also encouraged his fellow streamers to pull back the curtain and chime in with their own responses - and en masse they did, with some revealing more hilarious comments.

1. How do I unsubscribe from this streamer?
2. Jesus you look so tired
3. Ninja your trash khed get good

Professional Baseball player Trevor May, who regularly streams his games with Ninja, revealed that he can’t even use Twitch to escape sports fandom as he regularly receives comments teasing him about upcoming games.

Seeing as the streamers have now revealed what annoys them the most, they can probably expect some viewers to ramp their commenting up another level - doing their best to trigger the broadcaster.
Luckily, Twitch has time out and banning features, so at least streamers have some sort of filter to stop annoying queries and comments.
