Longest Twitch subathon record

Today, subathon is becoming an increasingly popular marketing scheme for streamers on any live platform. The term subathon has appeared on Twitch relatively recently. This combines the words “subscriber” & “marathon”. In this way, streamers can draw attention and grow an influx of subscribers with one long livestream...

This method became popular with Ludwig Ahgren’s record-breaking Twitch stream almost two years ago. On 14 March 2021, Ludwig held a subathon that ran for a month (more precisely 31 days) and ended on 13 April the same year. During subathon on Twitch, every time a streamer gets a subscription, more time is added to a descending timer. If the timer reaches zero, the stream ends. Ultimately, with his subathon Ludwig got around 282,000 subscriptions. Now he is one of the most famous YouTubers.

Of course, there were others after him. But Emily "Emilycc" lasts much longer, a 25-year-old Twitch Partner from Austin TX. She has become the first streamer to have a continuous year-long subathon. But her real goal is to broadcast for two years continuously! Currently, Emilycc`s livestream has been going on for 455 days (equivalent to 14.047h airtime). She started the subathon in November of 2021 and the stream will run until the timer is off. On her channel, Emilycc describes her stream as “Going for year two 455/730 days longest uncapped subathon hourslive 24/7”.

Of course, this can go on only so long as people donate. Her rate has been $1 or 100 bits for 3 minutes. But every time someone subs for her, she spins a wheel that adds from 1 to 20 minutes. It estimated that Emilycc made around $65K after Twitch took its controversial cut.

Currently, Emilycc has got 135.5K followers on her Twitch channel. The approximate range of her monthly earnings is estimated to be between $1.5K to $4.3K. Considering her record, Emilycc was able to attract a big audience. She reached a peak viewership of 1.9K on 10 May 2022.

What games does she stream? She is a variety streamer and has changed games on multiple occasions. But prefers - World of Warcraft, Horror games, Just chatting, Apex Legends, and Jackbox games with chat...

In conclusion

Since Emilycc has an uncapped stream, its subathon is likely to continue to grow. In any case, she has beaten the previous subathon records on Twitch and has livestreamed the longest of any streamer now. But we don’t think subathon is that easy! Still, not every streamer would agree to live in such extreme conditions. Recently, Emilycc tweeted that “I have no life!”. So think twice if it is worth it…
