Subs – Twitch Subs are split between the streamer and Twitch. New streamers are in a Tier 1 bracket and will get a 50/50 split making their subs worth $2.50. Once a streamer is pulling in enough views 1000+ per month they can re-negotiate their split to either a 60/40 split (Tier 2) or 70/30 (Tier 3) if they are really popular.

Bits -For every bit a streamer receives they get $0.01.

Ads – When streamers run ads on Twitch they make around $10-20 CPM depending on their contracts. This means they earn $10-20 per 1000 viewers on the stream when the ad runs.

Subs – Dream does not stream on his Twitch channel unless on special occasions, which means he likely does not have that many subs. He only has a lifetime of 151 hours streamed on Twitch as of this writing. Most if not all of his income comes from his Youtube channel. However he is still likely making around $5,000 per month from Twitch subs.

Ads – DreamWasTaken streamed for approximately 2.8 hours last month with an average viewership of 133,795 viewers. If he runs an ad twice an hour at a $10 CPM he would make 5.6 x 10 x 133.795 = $7,492.52 per month from ads. However, because he rarely ever streams on Twitch, it is unlikely that this ad income is the same every month.

Donations & Bits – Donations and bits are harder to calculate as we don’t have any hard numbers to go off. On Dream’s Twitch panels, he also states that all donations to his channel go directly to a charitable organization called The Trevor Project.
