HASAN EXPLAINS WHY HE DOESN’T READ TWITCH DONATIONS & SUBS AFTER LEAK BACKLASH
Hasan explained why he refuses to read out Twitch donations and subs after backlash to his figures in the Twitch earnings leak.
The list saw him earning $2.8m between August 2019 and October 2021, and due to his political output on the platform, immediately came under fire for it.
None of the people that are upset at me have ever watched me, If you did, you would know this is something that I acknowledge. This is something that I openly show in an effort to be as transparent as possible.
He then responded to the idea that he’s “banking on parasocial relationships,” explaining why that’s not the case.
I don’t read donations. I don’t read subscriptions… If you want to interact with me, you write in the chat. It’s the most democratic way possible. All you need to do is follow.
While Hasan does still allow donations & subs, it’s clear he doesn’t want viewers to be able to buy his attention in his Twitch stream.
