Interesting work! Thank you of exploring this domain. I was curious regarding the role of gender. You have one female in your sample and your comment in your discussion intimated that females may have more issues regarding privacy, safety, etc. Do you have plans to increase your sample size with regards to gender? I would find that very interesting. I also wonder if you might consider expanding your scope to ask Twitch streamers you interview if you could access their streams and analyze the transcripts to see the content of the streams. It may be that they record he streams and post them for consumption both on Twitch and potentially on YouTube as well. A suggestion to make your data richer. My curiosity is motivated for examining more issues of safety. You could do an examination linguistically positive/negative affect as well as do grounded theory coding to see the nature of the comments made in the chat.
