Here are five instances where Twitch streamers forgot that they were still broadcasting themselves to the world.

5 times Twitch streamers left their live streams on

5. Pokimane


Forgetting that she was live, Pokimane bent over on cam to pick up her cat. Upon realising what she had done, Pokimane can be seen covering her face in embarrasment, having instantly realised what happened. Pointing the camera out to her friends, all of whom seemed oblivious to the fact, Pokimane laughed the incident off and logged off her stream.

4. Snoop Dogg

During a Madden NFL stream, Snoop Dogg rage-quit 15 minutes into the game and forgot that his stream was on. 8 hours later, the rapper returned to find out that Twitch chat was still active on his channel. This is when he found out that he had forgotten to turn off the stream when he walked off earlier.
