Ninja’s manager and wife, Jessica Blevins, has rebuffed accusations of skimping out in her efforts to commission a new logo for her Twitch channel.

The Blevins’ pair a tight-nit partnership. Not only are the duo husband and wife, but Jessica also doubles-up as Ninja’s manager. Alongside running the Ninja brand, Jessica maintains her own Twitch channel which currently boasts over 465,000 followers.

In a bid to improve her channel’s aesthetic, the 26-year-old put out a contest that prompted creators to design a ghost-themed logo to fit her alias.

Blevins initially Tweeted out to her following, offering $500 for the design and full rights to the artist whose logo she settled on. The American subsequently posted a disclaimer, informing her fellow creators: “just because you pay someone for a logo does not mean you own it.”

After sending out her word of warning, Blevins’ DMs were filled with submissions from far and wide. Any candidates shortlisted as ‘finalists’ were also promised a $50 bursary for their efforts.

However, a fellow Twitch streamer under the handle ‘Devsolance,’ replied to Jessica’s call for a new logo, by sneer at the amount that she was offering in return for “thousands of hours of work from fans.”

Evidently irked by the comment, Jessica stated: “Just because we have money, doesn’t mean we need to overpay for things,” before going on to explain the nature of the design competition.

With her frustrations clearly being beyond the bounds of a single-character limited Tweet, the 26-year-old followed up with another post. 

Refusing to be subjected to a label from a bystander, Blevins stated: “I want to support creators as much as possible, don’t act like this is malpractice,” in a bid to shut down any further replies.

With her husband leading the charge on rival streaming platform, Mixer, Jessica continues to pursue her gaming endeavors on Twitch in front of her faithful following.

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.
