I watch Twitch pretty much every day. Mostly for games but there's some good IRL content out there too.

My favourite streams:

AdmiralBulldog - Easily my favourite. Former Dota 2 pro, now full time streamer, mostly of Dota 2 plus he let's plays whatever big game has just released if it appeals to him. Very funny if you like meme humour and self-deprecation. Lots of interaction with chat.

Jakenbakelive - A sort of travelogue streamer. An American who moved to Japan and lives off the income from his stream (which recently boomed in popularity). As someone who is intrigued by Japanese culture (actual Japanese culture, not weeb shit) his stream is interesting to watch. His eating out in Japanese restaurants, meeting people who are stream sniping him, exploring the country, and interacting with the locals are the best parts of his stream for me.

Hitch - IRL streamer who films himself hitchhiking all over the world. Basically films every moment of his travels, from the hour he wakes in his tent to the end of the day when he's pitched it back up and is about to go to sleep. It's really quite fascinating. Uses the money from his stream to pay for his flight to his starting location, food, and streaming equipment. I wouldn't ever hitchhike but it's fun to watch someone else doing it in realtime xD I started watching while he was doing this route over xmas: Iceland>England>Scotland>Ireland>Wales>England>France>Belgium>The Netherlands>Belgium>France>Andorra>Spain.

TheBadLuckBuddha - Body painter (but in a mostly non-titillating way). Typically a stream lasts half a day as she paints on cool, grotesque creations or super hero concepts to her upper body (e.g. she recently did a Spider-Man/Venom mash-up). One of the smaller streams, so chat is cool and welcoming, and she has a likable personality and allows chat to pick which songs play, which is a nice bonus.

Sweet_Anita - I don't watch her as much anymore but I'll watch for a bit if no one else is on, just for a laugh. Her thing is she has tourettes, so says the most inappropriate things at the worst of times. The way chat reacts to some of the stuff she says is great. She's got a good sense of humour too.

MarthTV - Our very own @Marth! German streamer, mostly of StarCraft II pro scene, but also streams playing it himself as well as games like Fallout 4. Although his stream is technically German he can speak good English and will interact with any viewers who can only understand English (such as myself). His chat is welcoming and Marth himself is super friendly. He reminds me of Shroud in terms of personality - no faking it for the camera and over-acting, he's just being himself. Can't meme for shit though and needs to ENABLE BTTZ & FRANKERFACEZ FFS!

Inv0kergirl - Dota 2 player. Like Marth, she streams in a foreign language for me (Russian), but speaks good English and will interact in English with anyone who types in chat in English. She's around my level of play with most heroes (5k MMR), but she plays what is widely regarded as the most difficult hero in the game to an absolutely incredible level for a non-pro, which is impressive to watch.

TrunksWD - Another one from VGC - @trunkswd - he streams all sorts of games, a mix of whatever is popular at the time as well as some slightly older stuff that his regulars enjoy playing like Fortnite (ergh), Golf With Friends, Jackbox, etc. The timezones don't always match up but I'll pop in if I see him streaming.

There's also a Dark Souls speedrunner called SayviTV on my follow list but she hasn't really been playing much of interest to me lately so I've not tuned in much. Her Dark Souls skills are insane tho - she actually beat Dark Souls III's bosses blindfolded.

Plus I watch whatever channel is broadcasting any Dota 2 tournament with my favourite team in it, though I don't actually follow any broadcasting channels, I just use Liquipedia and Reddit to find the relevant links.
