The Twitch outbreak on October 6 shook the entire community to its core, with the biggest leak in the form of the best streams total earnings. Now a savvy user has created an extension that lets you see exactly where your favorite streamer ranked on the earnings list.
With over 120GB of data becoming publicly available, including the source code and tips for an evolving Steam competitor, the Twitch leak was just one of the biggest things to ever happen in the streaming community.
However, the only thing that was heavily talked about and spawned memes across the internet was the earnings leak, where streamers’ earnings from September 2019-2021 became a major topic of discussion among both creators and their viewers.
That said, it was hard to keep track of where exactly all the best streamers were ranked among their peers – until now.
Barely a day later, Ottomated came up with a Chrome extension that lets you see where they ranked right away.
As you can see in the screenshot below, the extension simply adds a number next to each broadcaster’s name so you can easily see who was placed where in the list of earnings rankings.
So now if you are having trouble figuring out who to see, you might want to give some of the lower ranked some love.
If you’re worried about the logistics of the expansion (as some seem to be) due to the ever-changing nature of the numbers that leaked, then Ottomated has also answered how exactly he plans to handle it.
“It’s a meme that took me 15 minutes to code,” he said. “I do not give so much.”

Give it a few months, of course, and the information will be a little outdated, but the memes can just live on forever.
