“Memes in general are about cultural literacy,” Caldwell said. “How can you show your membership to certain subculture? This is exactly what’s going on with Twitch emotes, and some of these are really hard to grasp. Being able to have a firm grasp of how these emotes work is important in order to participate. I think we’re going to see more and more emotes, and more and more variations of the same emotes.”
Logitech’s goal while creating this mouse was essentially to replicate more than enough movement and speed of the gamers arm, making it a mouse that is able to keep up with those short burst arm movements without causing a delay in speed. With this mouse, the Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury allows you take your gaming capabilities to the next level. We recommend this one if the previous mouse was a bit too expensive for your budget and you wanted to upgrade yet save a little more cash at the same time.
Monkas is another member of the Pepe emote family, and one of the most important emotes on Twitch. Monkas is the word you’re most likely to see outside of Twitch chat (on Reddit or Twitter), and it’s crucial to understanding how certain communities react to it. Monkas goes back to a 4chan thread from 2011, but the illustration wasn’t used as en emote until 2016 when someone uploaded it to the FrankerFaceZ Twitch extension. But it wasn’t until February 2017, when it was dropped into Forsen’s Reddit page,, that the emote really seemed to take off. Once Forsen’s community runs with any emote or joke, all of Twitch is bound to notice, and other communities followed suit.
Keyboards used for gaming suffer a lot of wear and tear, which is why keyboards with precision mechanical switches designed to withstand millions of keystrokes started to replace cheaper and less robust versions several years ago. The K95 RGB Platinum keyboard from Corsair is built to last for years, with Cherry MX Brown mechanical key switches and an aluminum frame. It also lets you program six different key sequences, has media playback keys and a USB port, and each key can be programmed to have any backlit color you want.
