Students engage in data collection at large livestreaming convention

This weekend four students in our lab participated in TwitchCon, the largest livestreaming convention in the world, where they distributed hundreds of surveys to Twitch users, talked to people in the industry, and learned more about streaming culture. This research is part of a larger study funded through the National Science Foundation’s REU (research experience for undergraduates) program. This project aims to understand how to build a positive internet and supportive online culture.
