    "I personally think IG has a more personal live stream than other platforms because people who follow me will be the first one to see when I'm live. Plus it's so much easier to interact during lives with my followers than random trolls."

    "Noticed that Livestream is a place for those broadcasters looking for a more specific audience than let's say ig or fb live. Not only did i gain viewers here but i also found other broadcasters with pretty dope content."
