The Ludwig and Atrioc Twitter thread

In his latest Reddit Reacts video, Ludwig reacted to a post of a Twitter thread between him and Atrioc. Fans might recognize Brandon “Atrioc” Ewing, who often collaborates with Ahgren on his streams. Both of them had a common background of being alum at ASU. Atrioc even founded the Esports association at ASU.

The thread was a significant moment of them bonding together on their love for Melee. Ahgren even replied to him, saying he wished to follow his path of working at Twitch just like him. But Atrioc replied to that tweet almost 2 years after the thread started during a dinner date with Ahgren. This is where things took a turn and Ahgren revealed that he desperately wanted to work for Twitch before he started streaming.

The streamer later revealed that he even applied for a job at the Amazon subsidiary by sending an application through Bobby Scar, who worked at Twitch back then. Scar is one of Ahgren’s good friends, and fans of competitive Super Smash Bros will remember his great commentary for various events. He even gave a hilarious description of being rejected quickly and his dreams getting crushed by Twitch.

“They reviewed it and rejected it within 2 hours. It was the fastest rejection I have ever received in my life. I too was a kid with starry-eyed dreams of being a Twitch streamer and maybe working at Twitch.”
