Ludwig just shared his thoughts on the ongoing Twitch to YouTube migration. Certain elements of the site, according to the streamer, allowed video makers to make a considerably better livelihood on YouTube. Twitch, on the other hand, offers them very little assistance.
Colin and Samir conducted an interview that revealed the information. The two met down with Ludwig to get his thoughts on the two platforms in particular, as well as the streaming industry in general. When it came to his transfer from Twitch to YouTube, the content producer had some startling things to say. Ludwig explicitly addressed the heavy workload he was dealing with at Twitch.

Ludwig Interview about Twitch
The content creator mentioned how the long hours which he spent streaming took a toll when it came to the necessities of daily life. “Twitch streamers are like an underbelly,” Ludwig said. “They’re barely able to survive as humans. Half of them Uber Eats every single meal. They never pay any of their bills. Taxes are just something they forget about.”
Ludwig explained that while he was expected to be constantly streaming during his time at Twitch, the content creator was able to let himself go a little bit after he made the migration to YouTube. “As opposed to YouTubers who are well put together like basically Silicon Valley people to some extent, Twitch streamers will push themselves to go 150, 200, 250, or even 300 hours in a month,” Ludwig said. He called this approach to streaming “absurd.”
Working for Twitch, Ludwig claimed, was like working multiple shifts in a row. “It’s like working double shifts simply streaming,” he remarked. “It’s like, ‘Man, when are you going to do your laundry?’” “They aren’t,” says the narrator.
This follows the departure of several hundred employees from Twitch due to fears that current leadership do not understand the company’s community. “The content creator was the consumer,” a former employee explained. “If you’re not enthusiastic about the product, you’re not looking at it through the eyes of the customer.” As a result, you lack the same sense of empathy.”
