Reactions of popular streamers on Twitch data leak

Currently, the leak has been named as “part one”, suggesting that there could be more to come. It makes sense that the hackers are planning to spread the leak in parts. Above all, the recent leak revealed the earnings of some of the most popular Twitch channels from August 2019 to October 2021. Highly popular streamers like Pokimane, xQc, Tfue, and Asmongold are at the top of the list.

xQc had little to say about the leak and left everything on an ambiguous note.

However, Peter Park is way too direct with his words.

UnknownxArmy tweeted his Twitch code directly in frustration after unknown users made multiple attempts to login in to his account.
