If you have spent a fair amount of time on Twitch, you have most likely seen this exact block of text above posted in a streamer’s chat. These are the opening few lines from the script of Bee Movie, which has become a rather popular meme over the last few years. This is one of countless random messages you may find scattered across Twitch, which leads up to the following question: What is a CopyPasta, and why do people post them?
What Is a Twitch CopyPasta?
A CopyPasta is a block of text which is copied and pasted widely across the internet. It often originates from meme culture or a lengthy forum post. On Twitch, it is most often spam or something to do with a popular meme, but it will sometimes relate to inside jokes within a specific Twitch community. Spamming chat with nonsense might seem fun, but it can definitely get annoying so be cautious if you decide to partake.
Where to Find Popular Twitch CopyPasta
Looking to find Twitch CopyPastas that you can use to spam on a Twitch chat? Though we don’t actually recommend doing that every time you’re on Twitch, you can also read CopyPasta databases for entertainment. There are a few places on the Internet where you can find a whole library of CopyPastas. Some of the most popular ones are:
CopyPastaText.com is an archive ofA meme messages gathered across the internet. You can find a wide range of CopyPastas, not only used on Twitch but on other popular websites as well such as Discord and Reddit. Divided into categories of CopyPasta topics, you will not run out of CopyPastas to read–and spread (if you dare).
Emoji Combos is another excellent database for CopyPastas. However, the CopyPastas you usually find here lean more towards the graphics side of text memes–specifically, emoji arts and ASCII art. If you’re not sure what ASCII art is, you’ll see an example of it in the Types of Twitch CopyPasta.
Twitch Quotes combines the best of both worlds–the text and the ASCII art–to create one of the largest databases of CopyPastas. One unique feature of this website is that it ranks the most popular CopyPastas, and you can actually see the number of votes on each one.
TWITCH COPYPASTA DB
Twitch CopyPasta DB collects thousands of text memes from over 100 streams. You can sort through what’s popular or see random CopyPastas. There’s also a separate category for more profanity-laden pasta, which you can also read and spread at your own risk.
Top Copy Paste Messages for Twitch – 2023 Most Popular
Here are a few of the most recent CopyPasta messages shared on Twitch.
The FitnessGram™ Pacer Test
The FitnessGram™ Pacer Test is from the Fitness Gram website by Cooper Institute. This test is actually used to assess the physical fitness level of students, but somehow, it found its way onto Twitch chats and eventually became a widespread CopyPasta.
The FitnessGram™ Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 20 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the start. The running speed starts slowly, but gets faster each minute after you hear this signal. [beep] A single lap should be completed each time you hear this sound. [ding] Remember to run in a straight line, and run as long as possible. The second time you fail to complete a lap before the sound, your test is over. The test will begin on the word start. On your mark, get ready, start.
If you are on the internet frequently, surely you’ve already heard about the phrase “touch grass”. As you probably already know, too, this is an insulting way to tell someone to get in touch with reality instead of spending all of their time on the Internet. It gets thrown around a lot, too. But then one day, someone decided to put a twist on it, and the result is this CopyPasta:
“touch grass” is not an insult towards gamers, rather it is advice for them. When participating in intense periods of gaming, the human hand has a tendency to get sweaty. The sweat causes the hand to become slick, and it b becomes more difficult to retain a grip on the gamers gaming mouse, thus making it more difficult to perform well in intense gaming moments. By touching grass with the gamers hand, the grass will impart a layer of particulate onto the gamers hand, the particulate can be made of a variety of dusts, dirts and other natural matter. This particulate will then act in a similar form to climbers chalk, absorbing the sweat and drying out the gamers hand. With dry hands, the gamer can now perform to their maximum when gaming. This is why when an enemy or teammate tells you to touch grass, they are simply trying to assist you in performing better.
AND YOU THOUGHT THIS WAS A SAD STORY?
Sometimes CopyPastas takes a sharp turn from being sad or insightful to absolutely funny–or sometimes, just plain mean. Here’s a classic example of a CopyPasta you thought would make you cry, but was actually a sick burn intended for the creator.
My mother said to me- ‘Don’t ever smoke. Please don’t put your family through what your Grandfather put us through.” I agreed. At 28, I have never touched a cigarette. I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because your stream gave me cancer anyway.
Grammarly’s ad shows up everywhere: on social media posts, websites, and even YouTube videos. Somehow, its ad ended up as a CopyPasta. Now, it shows up even more frequently, like on Twitch chats.

Babe, I’m Breaking Up With You
This CopyPasta combines the best (and worst) of Twitch lingo. Poggers. Omegalul. Pepehands. Pepega. Weirdchamp. Kappa. It has everything. It’s possible this CopyPasta originated from @_heylauren’s tweet, which was a satirical message of a person saying they want to break up with someone–the Twitch way.
babe, i’m breaking up with you. it’s not you, you were poggers. it’s me, i’m omegalul. im sorry if this is pepehands but it has to be done, i’ve just been feeling pepega and our relationship has been weirdchamp for months, it’s time to end it, no kappa.
Paid Viewers, Paid Viewers Everywhere
One of the ways people troll streamers is to pretend they are actually paid to view their streams. Now, most people who regularly watch streams on Twitch won’t take it seriously, but newcomers might believe it.
Wow great game!! (remove this part of the message after pasteing in chat, your $1 has been sent to your Paypal account, Bethesda)
From “Trevor of ChAtBotsForTwitch”
Hi [insert streamer name], this is Trevor from ChAtBotsForTwitch,com. We kindly request that if you’re going to pay the extra to have our employees interact with your chat, you don’t make fun of them. We know you have difficulty getting real viewers and it frustrates you, but please don’t take it out on my employees. Thank you, Trevor.
When DrDisrespect mentioned his new interest in shungite rocks, everyone was surprised and amused. Shungite is a black mineraloid that is believed to have healing and protective properties. DrDisrespect seemed to have bought a lot of shungite rocks, and now the Internet made a whole bunch of memes around it–including this famous CopyPasta:
Anyways, um… I bought a whole bunch of shungite rocks, do you know what shungite is? Anybody know what shungite is? No, not Suge Knight, I think he’s locked up in prison. I’m talkin’ shungite. Anyways, it’s a two billion year-old like, rock stone that protects against frequencies and unwanted frequencies that may be traveling in the air. That’s my story, I bought a whole bunch of stuff. Put ’em around the la casa. Little pyramids, stuff like that.
I Know Top Players
There’s always that one person that says they know someone popular. This happens on Twitch as well, where someone goes on to say that they are best buds with the streamer. Whether they’re telling the truth or just joking around, it spawned a lot of similar messages that eventually became CopyPastas, like this one:
LETS GO MICHAEL!! (btw Michael is imaqtpie, i can use his first name because we are tight like that. yeah i know top players but its not a big deal to me lol)
The famous painter and TV host in the 80s and early 90s, Bob Ross, became a meme icon in recent years. Eventually, he also became a character in CopyPastas. This CopyPasta featuring Bob Ross is actually an “antipasta”–the sworn nemesis of all CopyPastas, created in an attempt to destroy the spammy messages once and for all. This pasta “tries” to call on the power of Bob Ross to stop the chaos, but of course, the message became a CopyPasta itself.
Hi, this is Bob Ross communicating from beyond the grave. I dedicated my life to painting so that you brats could do something more productive with your lives than sitting on your *** playing your stupid Atari games all day. I don’t appreciate you morons abusing my legacy and turning me into some childish meme that you can spam on your little MSM chat thing. Now go paint a mountain or something and don’t you dare copypaste this.
Now, while you won’t probably have seen this CopyPasta in one go as frequently as the others on this list, surely you’re familiar with one (or maybe ALL) of the lines below. This pasta combines all of the undying memes and copypastas around the internet and put them into one, ambitious, crossover.
Not a single soul:
This video: exists
This comment: hold my beer
Me: so you have chosen death
Death: that’s a big yikes from me dawg
Also death: I wasn’t expecting special forces
Me: mom can we have death
Mom: we already have death at home
Death at home: surprised pikachu face
This video literally makes me cry every time
Who else is watching this in ????
This video: wait that’s illegal
Also this video: why do I hear boss music???
Thumbs up so he sees this comment in 14 years when this video gets recommended!
Edit: thanks for the likes XD
So, those are just some of the top CopyPasta on the internet today. You can find them (and more like them) on CopyPasta databases, like the four listed above.
Oh, before we end this section, here’s another CopyPasta:
I swear all this chat ever does is pick the one idiot with the lowest IQ and copy whatever that brain-dead moron types.
Ironically, chats like this that tell people to stop spamming CopyPasta messages can sometimes become CopyPasta themselves.
Types of Twitch CopyPasta – Legendary Edition
CopyPastas come and go over the years. Some, remain popular (and are still shared widely despite how redundant they are) while others leave the limelight–only for them to show up unexpectedly.
Twitch has been around since 2011, so there have been plenty of legendary CopyPastas that have become widely known across the platform. However, memes don’t always age well, so what we have listed below are examples of the most common CopyPastas you can find in Twitch chat today:
Text art, also known as ASCII art is without a doubt the most common message you may find copy and pasted into a Twitch chat. There are dedicated websites that allow users to copy the desired picture to their clipboard for easy distribution. They are usually considered annoying and unnecessary messages, as they take up a ton of space and make it hard for the streamer to read their chat. Sometimes these pictures contain profanity and are vulgar enough to conflict with either chat rules or Twitch’s Terms of Service. Posting ACSII art will often result in your message being deleted, maybe a short timeout, or perhaps even a ban from the channel.
. 。 • ﾟ 。 . . . 。 。 . . 。 ඞ 。 . • . [Enter name] was ejected. . . 。 . 。 ﾟ . . , . . .
This CopyPasta is a bit more recent, but it is still a very common message to find in a Twitch chat due to the recent popularity of Among Us. It represents the in-game action of voting a specific player out of the game and sending them into space. Users of this CopyPasta are supposed to replace the “[Enter name]” with someone else’s name before posting in chat.
Malta vs Penguins
This does not change the fact that in Antarctica there are 21 million penguins and in Malta there are 502,653 inhabitants. So if the penguins decide to invade Malta, each Maltese will have to fight 42 penguins.
This statement is usually posted randomly, but it is light-hearted and will most likely spark an interesting conversation that would predict the outcome of this theoretical battle.
Rick Astley Paradox
If you ask Rick Astley for a DVD of the movie Up, he won’t give it to you because he’s never gonna give you Up. However, by not giving you Up like you asked for it, he’s letting you down. This is known as the Astley paradox.
Here’s another fun message to think about, as it combines two highly recognizable pieces of media in pop culture, being the movie Up and the song Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley.
Tanner from High School
So you’re going by “[Enter name]” now nerd? Haha what’s up d***** bag, it’s Tanner from Highschool. Remember me? Me and the guys used to give you a hard time in school. Sorry you were just an easy target lol. I can see not much has changed. Remember Sarah the girl you had a crush on? Yeah we’re married now. I make over 200k a year and drive a mustang GT. I guess some things never change huh loser? Nice catching up lol. Pathetic..
Oddly specific and a bit aggressive, isn’t it? The earliest usage of this message was directed at popular Twitch streamer “loltyler1”, and has been posted on various websites across the internet after that.
I’ve seen this message popping up a lot recently. Using a bunch of symbols, it is meant to resemble a music player, and is a pretty clever way of letting somebody know that …nobody asked.
There are a few variations of this one, so the emote and noun can be swapped out for whatever you want, but another trend as of late is to try to build pyramids containing the same emote in chat.
How Does a CopyPasta Get Popular?
A good CopyPasta can catch on like wildfire. It is quite easy for a viewer to start a CopyPasta chain, as copy and paste are two of the most common commands used by computer and smartphone users, meaning just about anybody can join in. If a viewer is pleased with the outcome of the CopyPasta chain, (whether it’s supposed to be funny, random, malicious or anything in between), chances are that they will bring it into a new channel to see how another creator reacts.
It is even easier to do this now because there are a select number of Twitch channels with access to Chants. This feature gives content creators and moderators who use the “/chant” command in chat to suggest messages in the chat. Viewers simply have to click the “Chant” button to join in on the party and post the suggested message in chat.
However, Twitch disabled this feature on February 2, 2022.
Though sometimes random and out of control, chat is an essential part of the Twitch experience. The first known CopyPasta was recorded in 2006, meaning people have been doing this stuff on the internet for over 15 years now. It is no surprise that it has found its way onto Twitch.Though sometimes random and out of control, chat is an essential part of the Twitch experience.
