The live stream occurred on 22 April, approximately six months after DisguisedToast signed an exclusive deal with Facebook Gaming.
The streamer, whose name is Jeremy Wang, has been solely streaming with Facebook since signing the deal in November 2019, leaving his Twitch channel relatively quiet.
The surprise stream, which saw him chatting with fans for around two hours, registered over 24,000 viewers and landed in the top 10 streams.

Despite being signed to Facebook Gaming, Jeremy shared that Facebook encouraged him to host the stream on Twitch, saying:
“What’s great is Facebook’s really chill. I said, ‘Hey, can I do a stream on Twitch?’ They’re like, ‘Toast, you go get ’em. You go get ’em.'”
Twitch has changed many aspects of Jeremy’s channel since he left the platform. He no longer has a verified tick on his profile and has lost many of his partnership benefits. As well, viewers aren’t able to subscribe to him.
It’s important to note that Jeremy is happy with his deal with Facebook, so his return to Twitch is likely only a small one. He’s shared that the the reason he hosted the stream through the platform was because Facebook Gaming doesn’t offer support for non-gaming broadcasts.
Twitch recently launched its “Watch Parties” feature, which allows streamers to watch Amazon Prime content with their viewers. Alternatively, you could read about the upcoming release of new products within the Shane Dawson x Jeffree Star makeup line.
