Streamer reveals what Twitch mod applications really look like

Twitch streamer Klaatu1 shared a hilarious application sent by one of his own moderators to a fellow streamer in hopes of becoming their head moderator.

Twitch moderators are an important tool in a streamer’s arsenal, acting as rule enforcers while the content creator entertains, making sure that users in the chat aren’t being toxic to other users, or to the streamer themselves.

For some, the idea of moderating the chat of their favorite channel is something they feel passionate about, although few creators go as far as holding an application process for the rule. Some decide to buck that trend though, leading Klaatu to read a cover letter sent by one of his own mods on his broadcast, resulting in a hilarious moment from a witty applicant that left the variety streamer in fits of laughter thanks to their impressive resume.

Klaatu showed the application on his stream so everyone could appreciate Dan’s work.

While streaming on January 22, Klaatu opened a cover letter from a user named This is Daniel, who after seeing a “job listing” for head moderator decided that he could bring contributions to the channel that would improve “enjoyment, containment, and revenue.” While Dan’s good intentions were clear, it was his experience that set him apart as a true stand-out candidate, and left Klaatu laughing too.

“I am an experienced internet janitor with real experience,” he wrote. “As well as spending some time working as a genuine janitor in a public school system. My understanding of Twitch chat and experience cleaning the hydras of degenerates, and the puke of children has provided baseline experience in the field of Twitch chat moderation.”

While that clearly amused Klaatu, the final section of his experience section was too much, with the streamer losing it as he read about Dan’s time moderating for a man who had “actually met Elon Musk,” before once again mentioning the “intense summer” he spent as a public school custodian.

While Dan may have claimed his time as a janitor was intense, Klaatu tended to disagree, revealing that he had told him that it was the “most laidback sh*t he’d ever done,” claiming he would just listen to music and clean desks.

As for why Dan wanted the job, his resume later explained that he was a “degenerate who has an interest in cleaning the chat of popular streamers in hopes of achieving enough fame to be gifted subscriptions to my friends’ channels.”

As to whether he got the job, that question remains unanswered, but it’s hard to imagine that an applicant like this would ever get turned down for the position of Twitch chat moderator.

Popular YouTuber Ethan Dolan has revealed on Instagram the details of his long-term relationship with girlfriend Kristina Alice, who he reconnected with this week after spending most of quarantine apart.

Ethan and his twin Grayson originally rose to popularity on the video app Vine in 2013, and have since gone on to produce content on their highly successful YouTube channel with over 11 million subscribers.

While they have many adoring fans, they haven’t been exempt from drama, such as earlier in July when they were forced to address a homophobic slur used when explaining the bullying they received in high school. In the same month, Ethan released a video detailing how comments online about his acne had severely affected his well-being in the past year.

Last week Ethan revealed his girlfriend to the world on YouTube with his brother Grayson. After spending months apart Kristine was finally able to catch a flight out to Los Angeles from Australia where she lives.

On Monday, Ethan stunned his fans by posting a series of close, romantic pictures to his Instagram alongside an emotional message, which read: “To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life.”

He explained that last December was “one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life” and attributed his success and ability to get through to her support.

Part 1/3. To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life. Our trip to Hawaii on this day last year, will be a memory I cherish for the rest of my life. I will be forever grateful for how caring you were during one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life while living in Australia together last December. I wouldn’t have been able to create my most proud project last January without your constant support. When we were forced to quarantine together and be attached at the hip for an additional 5 months longer than we planned… I wasn’t even mad😌 When you had to go back to Australia without knowing when we’d be able to see each other again it was NOT CHILL. Although we unintentionally spent 4 months on opposite sides of the globe with a 17 hour time difference… I still felt closer than ever to you. The hours on FaceTime everyday and random gift care packages were fun. You completely took over my camera roll because I couldn’t help but to screenshot your face every couple seconds. Getting a little part of you tattooed on my arm also contributed to you feeling closer to me I guess 😝 Thank you for making me happy everyday. Thank you for giving me something to always look forward to. Thank you for making me a better version of myself. I love you Photos by: @jordenkeith

It seems as though Ethan will have more to say in the next few days after he labeled the caption only part 1 of 3. For now, the YouTuber has confirmed to the world that not only is he in a far better place than he was last year, but that he is well and truly taken.
