I'm logged into like 6 different people's accounts and I can't log out. I was in one of the users chats and there were a ton of people that were having the same thing happening to them.

I was logged into my account, but decided to check around because of this. When I looked into my messages I was switched into another account and could see their PMs.

That's a mess.

When I go to the homepage, I'm logged in as ogsZyphent, whom I've never heard of. If I go to any channels, I'm logged in as myself.

This is potentially a huge fucking issue, given that Twitch has my credit card information.

Whoa this is seriously messed up. I'm glad I use a different password for twitch and don't stream anything.

edit: I refreshed and now I can't log in and am not getting logged into anyone else's account?

It doesn't look like you can actually do any damage. Worst thing that happens is you see the email address of what appears to be only 2 accounts.

Do you guys get sent to Apopp's account page when you click the settings option on the main twitch page?

I never use twitch but what does having a CC on there do?

This explains why a lot of typical streams don't have the usual amount of viewers. Recipients probably cannot log into their own accounts.

This is a serious issue.

I am VERY lucky I didn't give twitch any CC info, but I actually just tried to go to my settings and I AM logged in as someone else when I got to my info page. When I'm in the "channels you follow" page everything looks normal. It says it's me and everything as if there's no issue. Holy crap this is a big problem and I am very concerned.

That and read the first page of someone's PM's. This is a major fuckup, but like you said it seems like someone wouldn't be able to do anything too horrible.

Holy crap. Luckily my account doesn't have any sensitive info on it, so I'm not going to bother trying to access it. But wow, this is awful. RIP Twitch.

Edit: it seems that you can't do anything horrible with other user's accounts. So that's good, at least

It says I'm logged in as someone else but my PMs are mine, my subs are mine, and I appear as myself in chat.
