My friend, as an avid Twitch viewer, you‘ve probably seen some hilarious text-to-speech donations made by trolls looking to get a reaction from streamers. These text-to-speech messages, enabled through services like Streamlabs, have become an integral part of the Twitch experience.

In this post, I’ll explain everything you need to know about Twitch text-to-speech donations from the perspective of a longtime gamer and streaming enthusiast. I‘ll also provide 25+ funny copypastas you can use to troll your favorite streamers. My goal is to give you ideas for lighthearted pranks that will make streamers and audiences laugh – not ruin anyone‘s day.

So grab your favorite drink, get comfortable, and let‘s dive right in!

What are Text-to-Speech Donations on Twitch?

Text-to-speech donations allow viewers to pay to have custom messages read aloud on a streamer‘s channel. The text is converted into computer-generated speech and played through the stream audio.

Streamlabs and StreamElements are the most popular services that enable TTS donations. Donors can type their message, choose one of the robotic voices, and send it to the streamer.

According to Streamlabs, over 70% of their top streamers have text-to-speech enabled as of 2022. It has become a standard feature that viewers expect to see.

Text-to-speech donations are a great way for audiences to grab a streamer‘s attention during busy streams with fast moving chats. Streamers get thousands of chat messages per hour, making it impossible to read them all. A TTS donation helps your comment stand out.

Of course, pranksters also use TTS to troll streamers with funny (or inappropriate) comments. It‘s all in good fun!

Why You Might Not Be Able to Donate

Before you can use text-to-speech donations to poke fun at your favorite streamer, make sure they have donations enabled in the first place. Many smaller streamers don‘t accept them.

Here are some common reasons you won‘t see a donation panel on a channel:

  • The streamer hasn‘t set up donations. They need to integrate with Streamlabs or StreamElements first to get the donation option. No integration means nowhere to send your TTS!

  • Donations are on but TTS minimum is too high. Streamers can configure the minimum donation to trigger text-to-speech. For example, $10 minimum for TTS.

  • Text-to-speech is disabled. Streamers can toggle TTS on/off separately from donations. It‘s possible to accept donations but block TTS.

If you don‘t see the option to donate, try asking the streamer directly through chat or DM. But ultimately it‘s their choice whether to enable donations and text-to-speech.

Key Factors That Determine If Your TTS Will Be Read Aloud

For the most part, yes – your donation will be read aloud if you meet the criteria above. But here are a few other factors to be aware of:

  • Swear words and slurs will be blocked. Streamlabs/StreamElements filter out inappropriate language automatically.

  • Long donations may be truncated. There is a character limit per TTS, usually around 200 characters.

  • Streamers can blacklist words/names. Any donations with these will be blocked.

  • Channels can prohibit TTS trolling. So double check the rules!

As long as your message is short, follows the guidelines, and meets the minimum donation amount, your comment should be read on stream.

Now let‘s look at some examples of funny TTS donations you can use to prank your favorite channels.

25+ Funny Text-to-Speech Messages to Troll Twitch Streamers

Below are 25+ funny copypastas and text-to-speech messages you can use to troll your favorite streamers. I‘ve organized them into categories, ranging from spamming annoyances to hilarious bait-and-switches.

Of course, the goal here is lighthearted pranks, not cruelty. Keep things fun and avoid genuinely disrupting streams. If the streamer seems bothered, it‘s best to stop.

Let‘s start with some of the most common TTS tropes: spam and annoying voices.

Category 1: Spam/Troll Copypastas

These repetitive or nonsensical messages are perfect for some harmless trolling:

  • My sprinkler goes like this: tsssssssssssssssssstttt. And comes back like: tssssssssssssssstttttttttttttttt.

  • Sttttttttttttttttttrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimmmmmmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrr! I am trolling your channel right now haHAA !

  • Boting boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring boring

  • I just wanted to say: Suka blyat idi nahui!

  • Can I get a ‘trans rights!‘ in chat please, guys gals and non-binary pals? Trans rights! Trans rights!

  • Huh? What was that noise? Sounded like a gurgling drain. Oh wait, that was you! Hahaaaa gottem!

Category 2: Annoying Sounds/Voices

Spam voice lines and sounds to generate hilarious reactions:

  • Loud motorcycle revving VRRRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMMMM!

  • In deep voice Bee boop bop. This is a robot invasion. We are taking over… bee boop.

  • In Mickey Mouse voice Hey there pal, ha-ha! It‘s me, Mickey! Wanna come to Disneyland?


  • Sir this is the police. We‘ve got you surrounded. Come out with your hands up! Police siren

As you can see, text-to-speech allows for creative ways to annoy and poke fun at streamers. Next let‘s look at trolling the stream itself.

Category 3: Baiting/Trolling About Stream

With these examples, you can have fun teasing the stream quality itself:

  • Hey streamer, your mic sounds a little funny today. Might want to check it out.

  • Is it just me or is the stream lagging like crazy for anyone else? Chat is moving so slow.

  • Dude you‘ve been live for 8 hours… maybe take a break? I‘m worried about you.

  • Can you turn up the game volume? I can barely hear it over you screaming into the mic lol.

  • I subscribed but nothing happened. Streamer hasn‘t thanked me. Unsubbed.

Pretending there are issues with the stream audio, video, or chat is a classic troll move bound to get a reaction from the streamer.

Category 4: Absurd Stories/Scenarios

One of my favorite genres of TTS donations is spinning an engaging story to draw the streamer in before pulling the rug out:

  • Hey streamer, thanks for everything. You really helped me through my parents‘ divorce. It‘s been really hard but you kept my spirits high. Anyway, hope you‘re having a great day!

  • I just wanted to thank you for helping me stay strong during my fight against cancer. My scans came back clean today after 6 months of chemo. You gave me hope in my darkest hours. OkayChamp

  • This stream really helps me take my mind off the crippling credit card debt I‘m under. Working 3 jobs to pay interest is so exhausting. Needed this laugh today LULW

  • I have to go now. My cat just caught on fire because I left the stove on. Don‘t worry, I have a fire extinguisher! Well, time to go put him out!

Crafting an elaborate story only to pull a silly bait-and-switch finale is comedy gold. The more convincing you can make the setup, the funnier the payoff.

Category 5: Fresh Memes & Pop Culture References

And finally, no list of TTS donations is complete without harnessing the latest memes and pop culture crazes:

  • It‘s Wednesday my dudes! Loud frog noises AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

  • What da dog doin? What da dog doin? barking sounds

  • It was me Austin! It was me all along, Austin! evil laughter

  • Deez nuts! Haaa gotteeemm! Deez nuts!

  • Oppa Gangnam Style! plays Gangnam Style

Streamers love responding to the hottest trending memes and pop culture moments. Put your own spin on them for comedy gold!

Test Your Text-to-Speech First to Avoid Issues

The last thing you want is to spend money on a clever TTS donation, only to have it blocked or muted.

So I strongly recommend testing out your message using a TTS simulator site like TextReader before sending it live.

Here‘s how you can troubleshoot for potential issues beforehand:

  • Check for filtered swear words or slurs that could get flagged

  • Listen for character limits that cut off your message abruptly

  • Verify pronunciation and audio sounds okay

Refining your message ahead of time ensures it gets read on stream just as you intended.

Data on Text-to-Speech Usage on Twitch

To give you an idea of how widely used text-to-speech donations are, here are some statistics:

  • Over 70% of the top Streamlabs streamers have TTS enabled

  • The average Streamlabs user reads aloud 4 donations per hour

  • Friday evenings (8-11pm) see the highest volume of TTS donations

  • $5 is the most common minimum donation required to trigger TTS

So tens of thousands of text-to-speech donations happen across Twitch every day. The feature is incredibly popular among viewership.
