IRL Twitch streamer gets phone stolen during live stream

A Twitch IRL live streamer is caught streaming her exploration of Naples, Italy when her phone is stolen from her hands.

IRL Pull out Streamers occasionally face unfortunate timing, disturbing strangers, and rarely escaping accidents while capturing content in the world. An IRL Twitch streamer recently encountered a phone thief while exploring the narrow streets of Naples, Italy.

Popular Twitch streamer Elina from Sweden held an IRL livestream in Italy yesterday, during which she explored Naples in a residential area with a few shops down the street. Like other live streamers who have been approached on the train or hit by a car in front of their Twitch audience, an unexpected event occurs that drastically changes the stream in a moment. While discussing potential safety issues, Elina’s live stream becomes evidence of a crime when someone on a moped grabs her phone and drives away with it.

The IRL Twitch clip of Elina losing her phone begins with the live streamer looking at her from under an umbrella before saying, “That looks cool” and rotating her phone camera to face a close ally. Elina then eerily hints that she thinks she’s going to die walking down the street showing another pedestrian in a poncho carrying a bag in his right hand. “The streets are so long, it’s amazing,” Elina says, pointing the camera at the main street in front of her, “if I died in the stream I think that would be good content.”

Approaching a small shop with lanterns blowing in the wind outside, Elina’s phone was stolen by a motorist who briefly continued streaming as they escaped with the device. The end of the video shows the narrow road that had worried Elina, which could indicate that she was right to be concerned about her safety heading that way. After the robbers showed their route, they interrupted the live stream and Elina’s viewers became worried about them. Elina quickly took to Instagram to stream after the robbery, explaining that she’s “a little bit devastated because my phone was stolen. Just snatched from my hand by a moped guy.”


Since the clip of her stolen phone was posted online, it has been viewed 35,000 times on Twitch and, like many videos previously, shared on Livestream Fails. Some of Elina’s Live viewers were left in shock at the moment her phone was stolen, as one said “what” and another said “wtf”, both in full capitalization. While she didn’t go into detail as to what happened, Elina has confirmed to her relieved Instagram audience that she is home and fine, although she has missed a phone, but the situation could have been a lot worse if the suspicion , on which she commented Pull out were accurate.
