In the world of Twitch, streamers do some crazy things, and we’ve seen many instances of streamers on the wild side, or even having a really awkward moment to catch the viewers attention. But recently, something interesting has popped up. Streamers are now going for the World Record for longest Twitch stream and it seems that more people are doing it today. However, it’s a record that few streamers will attempt. Why? Because it’s incredibly exhausting to do, but most importantly, it’s time-consuming.
World Record For Longest Twitch Stream
A few weeks ago, LosPollosTV made headlines for breaking the longest Twitch record for streaming which was 195 Hours 36 Minutes 17 Seconds. Since then, we’ve seen many attempts to break this record, but only some have actually gone through. CallMeCypher is one of those streamers who took a dive in the deep end and went through with the attempt to break the record. Who is CallMeCypher? In his Twitch profile, he says: “My name is CallMeCypher. I play Overwatch and Fortnite for Texas A&M University (DPS/Flex). I’ve been playing video games basically all my life and played competitively in FPS games for 8 years (Halo, CS:GO, TF2, Overwatch and Fortnite).” Considering his competitive nature, it’s only fitting that he would attempt to go all out and try and break the Twitch record.
Well, a few days ago he finally achieved his goal and broke the World Record for the longest Twitch stream. Now, he would go on top of LosPollosTV. You can see the exact moment he finally realizes he past the brutal 195 Hours 36 Minutes 17 Seconds set by LosPollosTV:
Who is ThatFunkieMunkie?
Jonathan Mansfield is known at ThatFunkieMunkie on Twitch. He’s a multi-player streamer who doesn’t stick to one game and plays a variety of different games/genres from FPS to adventure games. Recently, ThatFunkieMunkie also decided to take on the daunting task of achieving the world record for the longest Twitch stream. He wasn’t alone in this journey as Jon and his girlfriend Kyle both worked together to make this special endeavor happen.
During their run, ThatFunkieMunkie played a variety of games from Tabletop Simulator to Spyro Reignited Trilogy. A lot of the times they would be in “Just Chatting”, a category in Twitch that lets streamers talk or stream random stuff that’s not necessarily video game related. It gives a chance to viewers to get close and personal with their favorite streamers.
After the longest stream of their lives, both Jon and Kyle hit the 205 hours, 4 mins, 3 seconds mark, making them the world record holders for the longest Twitch stream. An incredible feat that shows what you can accomplish if you are committed and resilient. Watch ThatFunkieMunkie set the latest world record on Twitch:
Congrats also to ThatFunkieMunkie for clocking in 205 hours, 4 mins, 3 seconds for the new record.
