GTA RP at the start of June, hosting broadcasts eclipsing the 10 hour mark on a number of occasions. 

However, after being told what to do at every single turn during his June 18 livestream, he decided to address his frustrations very directly – telling them to “shut the fuck up”. 

Blizzard EntertainmentSummit1g has been streaming World of Warcraft Classic on Twitch.

Summit1g was accused of ignoring the chat on numerous occasions during the stream, before being told to do “real quests” by a viewer, and his response was firm to say the least.

    He added: “Jesus, man. This whole World of Warcraft section is like ‘your way or the fucking highway’… Suck my fucking dick. I do what I fucking want. Holy shit man, it’s fucking incredible.”

    Summit has always been somebody that will pick games that he enjoys for his streams – rather than selecting something his audience wants him to play – and when it comes to making gameplay decisions, clearly he doesn’t want to be told what to do by other people. 

    This isn’t the first time that the streamer has been frustrated while playing World of Warcraft, either, after previously being called a “pussy” for not playing the game for longer during broadcasts – despite grinding his way through it for over 11 hours.

    Whether or not he will continue playing Blizzard’s game in the long-term remains to be seen, but if issues with the community continue to linger, he might eventually turn away from it.

How to go live on TikTok

Going live on TikTok is a great way to connect with your TikTok followers, but there are a few requirements that need to be met before a user is permitted to live stream.

If you’ve been on TikTok for any extended period of time, you may have scrolled past, and even watched a live stream or two when they pop up on your For You Page.

While it can be a chance for hugely popular creators to connect with thousands of followers at the same time, it is not only for big influencers. A good portion of the TikTok userbase has the ability to live stream, though it is not available to users immediately upon downloading the app.

There are some requirements that need to be met in order for the average user to be able to live stream, relating to your age and follower count.

TikTok is a hotspot for viral trends and fascinating videos.

TikTok live requirements:

In order to be able to live stream, your TikTok account must meet the following requirements:

  • Have more than 1000 followers
  • Be at least 16 years old.

If you’ve met these standards the option to live stream should be available, and if you’ve only recently met the requirements then the option should appear soon.

How do you go live on TikTok?

Once you have met the requirements for being able to go live, the process of actually streaming is pretty simple.

  1. Launch TikTok, and press the plus button at the bottom-center of your screen.
  2. Under the red record button, select the option labeled ‘live.’
  3. Enter a title for your live.
  4. Tap ‘go live’ to start the stream.

Once live viewers will be able to talk to you via live chat, making communication much more instant. It also gives you an opportunity to delve into longer content, like storytimes for example, that TikTok’s usual one-minute video limit doesn’t give you.

While not everyone can go live right off the bat, the threshold for being able to is still relatively low, and can serve as a great way to communicate with your followers.
