The Affective Messaging of Gameplay Livestream Viewers

EasyChair Preprint no. 1105

3 pagesDate: June 8, 2019


This study leverages multiple tools to investigate affective messaging on Twitch. By collecting data for a month from thousands of Twitch channels, this study is able to thoroughly analyze the presence of affective disposition theory (ADT) and user-figure relationships. Affect messages are compared between gameplay and non-gameplay streams, entertainment and expertise streams, and viewer and streamer-directed. Identifying variation in affect messaging patterns will provide game developers, streamers, and researchers a strong foundation for recognizing viewer anomalies.

Keyphrases: affective disposition theory, gameplay livestreaming, Twitch
