What is the Twitch Prime copypasta?

Seriously, haven't you heard about Twitch Prime?

During the first half of the 2010s, there were a number of competitors on the streaming market. Twitch wasn’t the giant that it is today, but it gained a huge momentum boost in terms of its market stance after Amazon acquired it in 2014. Not only was this important for Twitch’s success, but it was also a promising sign for the streaming world.

It wasn’t until 2016 when Amazon finally added a free subscription token for its Prime subscribers. Amazon Prime was essentially designed as a subscription system that would allow Amazon customers to receive their orders as fast as possible, all the time. With time and Amazon’s growth, additional perks were offered to the subscription model, including Twitch Prime.

Twitch Prime allows each Amazon Prime member to subscribe to a Twitch channel of their choice, with no additional costs. Considering there are more than 112 million Amazon Prime subscribers, only in the U.S., it turned out to be a golden opportunity for streamers to increase their subscriber totals.

While most users are aware of their perks, most had no clue about the addition of a free sub during the early days of Twitch Prime. This caused streamers to find creative ways to remind their viewers they can subscribe for free if they like the content and are already Twitch Prime subscribers. 

The initial reminder was surely useful for some fans, but it got to a point where it became slightly annoying for long-time viewers and existing subs. So much so that most viewers decided to make copypastas based on streamers’ ways of informing viewers about Twitch Prime. Copypastas are blocks of texts that get spammed in Twitch chats whenever a worthy moment occurs.

Here are some of the most popular Twitch Prime copypastas you can use to join in the fun.
