Twitch streamer has unique way of asking for Partnership

One Twitch streamer hasn’t had her request for Partnership with the site approved – so she’s taking matters into her own hands in a creative way.

Twitch offers streamers a myriad of ways to monetize their content on the platform, two of which call for them to meet certain requirements to boost their status with the website.

After keeping a consistent streaming schedule, reaching a set number of regular viewers, and maintaining a certain follower count, broadcasters are able to meet Affiliate and, later on, Partnership status – although not every streamer is “brand-friendly.”

TwitchTwitch streamers can reach Affiliate and Partner status with the site after meeting certain requirements, as listed above.

One Twitch streamer is seeking out Partnership status with the platform but hasn’t had her request approved just yet – but that isn’t stopping her from pleading with the website in a unique way.

California-based streamer “DJ Lark,” as she is so-named, is a disc jockey who streams her mixes live on Twitch for an audience of over 5.3k followers.

Specializing in electro house, trap, bass, and metal, DJ Lark has only ever performed for her live stream after being introduced to disc jockeying in 2019 – and she’s using her newfound passion for the art to plead with Twitch for potential Partnership.

Lark posted a video to Twitter on December 2 where she tagged the site, writing, “Hey Twitch since u haven’t replied to my partner app, figured there’s still time to win u over.”

In her minute-long video, Lark put on a mix that included rapper 50 Cent’s “Disco Inferno” before humorously transitioning to The Smith’s “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want,” staring pointedly at the camera as the song played without making a move.

Considering the unique nature of her content, it comes as quite a surprise that DJ Lark isn’t yet Partnered with Twitch – a sentiment echoed by many commenters online, who are equal parts shocked and hopeful that she will receive the coveted status soon.

DJ Lark’s skills are even more impressive considering that she mixes without the use of headphones, preferring to “read soundwaves and rely on matching the songs as as fast as possible.”

Only time will tell if Lark will actually become a Twitch Partner – but hopefully, her hilarious request will reach the site’s moderators sooner rather than later.

Streamer goes viral for calling out “disrespectful” Among Us players

YouTuber and Twitch streamer Julien ‘julien’ Solomita has gone viral for a clip in which he called out Among Us players who are disrespectful towards others in-game.

In the viral clip, which has been viewed over 350,000 times since being uploaded to Twitter on December 4, Julien blasted people who infect his lobbies with negativity or make others feel “unsafe.”

“When I make these lobbies, when I go around and hit up some of my friends, and often times some of my friends’ friends to play Among Us with me, I have one thing in mind: that everyone I’m inviting gets to have fun,” the streamer began his rant.

“Gets to feel welcome. Gets to feel safe. Gets the exact opportunity as everyone else to be listened to. And gets to go home at the end of the night and say that had a good night of gaming,” he continued.

Among Us has become one of the most popular online games.

According to Julien, this mantra should be enforced for new people. “I’ve met more people in the streaming world playing Among Us than I’ve ever met, by far, than any other game,” he explained. “So, when new people are in my lobbies, I try to go extra to out of my way to make those people feel like they’re welcome and they get to have fun.”

Communication can be key in Among Us, so it makes sense that anyone who plays would want to be able to speak freely and not be spoken over. As such, when players aren’t able to get a word in, the experience can be ruined.

This is why the streamer has “zero tolerance” for the “normalization” of disrespecting people in video games.

“Among Us is a game and it’s for fun. It’s not so boys can talk over women. It’s not to make new people in the group feel small or unwelcome. It’s not to win in every game at all costs,” he continued to rant. “It’s a game and it’s for everybody to enjoy.”

He went on to reach out to players who may have been disrespected in online games and hoped that they never experienced that again. “I don’t want anyone here to get the idea that it’s even close to normal for that to be how you feel when you play a video game. That’s not normal. It’s f**king weird, it’s wrong.”

A lot of people have taken Solomita’s message to heart and voiced their agreement in the replies. Hopefully, his words have a lasting effect on players feeling a bit out of touch in online games such as Among Us.
