A Twitch streamer was left speechless after taking on a dare from his chat went horribly wrong, and they baited him into a web browser prank instead.

The interaction between Twitch personalities and their chat is one the most important parts of streaming, as building an engaging relationship is what keeps viewers coming back for more.

However, time and time again, streamers have learned the hard way that there will always be those using the “live” aspect to their advantage, where pulling pranks is too easy to resist.

From classic donation name pranks, to tricking people to opening risque links, trolls have many tricks up their sleeves. A Twitch partner was an example of this when a dare turned into a hilarious web browser history mishap.

Streamer’s chat baits him into revealing Bbrowser history

StarCraft 2 streamer ‘special_‘ was in the middle of his broadcast, when someone in his chat dared him to type ‘por’ into his web browser, which caught the attention of the personality.

“Type por in your browser? You dare me? Okay, let’s see what happens when I put that in my browser,” he said, taking on the dare from the devious member of his audience.

“Let’s see… por…” he read out loud, as he typed it into his web browser, which then instantly filled in with an adult content website. The streamer was shocked, and quickly closed out of his browser in embarrassment.

The prank appeared to reveal the streamer’s web browser history which left him temporarily speechless, before he laughed and exclaimed, “That was a link, I promise! It’s okay, I promise someone linked that!”

He continued to laugh off the incident. “Okay, someone linked me that. So I clicked it by mistake!” he said, as he explained why the risque site content autofilled into his browser. Which to be fair, clicking a link by accident would add it to your browser history.

Despite the unexpected moment, the StarCraft player was able to laugh the whole thing off, and continued to his broadcast not letting the moment phase him.

The Twitch personality shouldn’t feel too bad though, as the very nature of broadcasts being live to the world means that there will always be someone out there trying to take advantage of the moment.

Most streamers have been there before, and have fallen for the same kind of pranks in one form or another. If nothing else, it’s a lesson to not always give the chat what they want, as they could be setting you up.

Social media stars Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have called out the “super weird, super uncomfortable” practices of paparazzi following them and camping outside their homes. 

With the success of TikTok around the globe, a new batch of social media stars have been born, but perhaps, there have been none more successful than the D’Amelio sisters, Charli and Dixie. 

The pair have a massive fanbase across TikTok, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, and obviously, that means they attract media attention too.

However, it seems as if some paparazzi have been overstepping their boundaries, with the sisters calling them out for sitting outside their houses.

Charli and Dixie have seen unrivalled success on TikTok.

It came during the January 21 episode of their 2 Chix podcast as the pair got into things that have really been grinding their gears, with the paparazzi camping outside their homes being a big one. 

“Something that’s been grinding my gears – paparazzi. Kevin, Josh, this is for you guys – please stop waiting outside my house,” Charli said. “Super weird, super uncomfortable, super big invasion of privacy. Home is supposed to be a safe space, not where you have people waiting for you. Super weird, thank you.”

Dixie added that whenever she leaves her apartment, she’ll see paparazzi illegally parked outside, and they’ll follow her when driving. “They used to be really chill, we’d be like ‘hey, not right now we’re just sitting outside’ but now, I feel like since everything is closed, and they’re getting zero content from anyone, they kind of know our routine now,” she added.

Topic begins at 0:30

Dixie further noted that it’s quite “scary” in Charli’s situation, as her home is all glass and so there’s plenty of ways to look inside, if they wanted to do so. 

TikTokers have called out paparazzi before overstepping boundaries, with some being called out for “stalking” the D’Amelio’s in particular, even when they’re not doing much at all.

Whether or not they change after being called out by the sisters remains to be seen, but, maybe they’ll back off a little bit.
