Twitch streamer GPHustla has broken the record for longest concurrent stream after broadcasting for over 1,000 hours dating back to mid-August and throughout September.

The marathon stream began in August during a 24-hour stream attempt that kept escalating and grew to become a 30-hour broadcast, eventually 48, and continued to grow.

Out of seemingly nowhere, once GPHustla decided he would start sleeping during the stream, the marathon spiraled on and on, eventually becoming 500 hours and now over 1,000 straight.

While Twitch’s stats only list a full day’s broadcast as being 23 hours and 59 minutes, GPHustla’s stream summary page is full of long day-long broadcasts proving that he’s been streaming throughout September.

He doesn’t just stick to one room either. As part of his IRL content, the entertainer will go out and get groceries to be able to live healthy while continuing to do what he loves.

In fact, he doesn’t even want to stop streaming. His plan going forward is to break the “official” Guinness World Record of 161 hours with an attempt on January 1, 2021, but will be streaming until that point happens.

Unofficially, however, the IRL streamer has shattered all previous times and has no plan on ever pressing the “end stream” button.

Earlier this year, a streamer named Reecesy broke the record for longest concurrent broadcast with just over 200 hours.

Now, it’s been crushed and then some.

“I’m so excited every day. I kinda don’t want to stop,” GPHustla said. “I want to live on Twitch now and be the streamer that’s live on Twitch. You can, any time of the day, stop by GPHustla’s channel and he will be live.”

“That’s what I want,” he added.

With the way GPHustla has planned it all combined with his determination, it’s unlikely that anyone will be able to break his ongoing streaming feats for the foreseeable future.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
