    Twitch Plays Pokemon - 20k+ People in Chat play the game

    Twitch

    Basically, people in chat say a,b,start, up, down, etc to play Pokemon (Red I believe)

    They've somehow gotten through 3 Gym Leaders in 3 days. They've also been stuck in the same spot for 7 hours.

    They've gotten through 4 badges now.

    It has been related to the give an infinite amount of monkeys a typewriter and they'll write Shakespeare

    Also, I think it is freaking genius of whomever decided to do this. Twitch pays you when you run ads, based on the number of viewers you have. The base is $4/1000 subscribers.

    Right now there is 45,000 people watching this and playing along. 1 ad an hour is $180 an hour. The normal rate is 3 ads an hour on Twitch. So $540 every hour by writing a simple program and letting them play. That's 24 hours a day too. I estimate this person has already made $25,000 by doing this (some lead time to get it this popular).

    I've never played Pokemon so I have no idea what's happening, but it's an interesting concept.

    Not really, not a single person anyways, there's like 45,000 people watching right now and there's a delay.

    I checked this at 11 this morning and it's at the same place. I figured, when I opened it, they would be here forever.

    Probably the most challenging part here.

    It's the place where there are arrows that force you to go in one direction
