According to Blue Madrigal, his ex-girlfriend and one person who initially confirmed his death on social media, Barstein committed suicide.
Bernstein became known as Twitch on Reckful, where he was best known for his “Work of the World” stream and had more than 936,000 followers. Most recently, Bernstein worked as the developer of his own video game, “Everland”, which was set to release later this year.
Bernstein expressed concern about a series of series on Thursday morning Tweets, In which he appears to have proposed to his ex-girlfriend Beka Choke. He followed the post a few minutes later, “Ah, I feel bad for anyone who has dealt with my madness,” he asks his followers, “in this situation the madman does not feel in control of their actions.” “
Madrigal hinted at his death in a number of Twitter posts, the first of which reads, “I am at a loss right now. I am scared to see what has happened so far. I can’t stop crying.”
Madrid then went on to tweet, “Anyone I love has killed himself. I hope I could say something to prevent it. He then shared a video of himself with Bernstein and a screenshot of their text messages.
Cho later released a lengthy tweet tweet saying he “didn’t see the offer until it’s too late” and shared that Bernstein helped him understand the complexities of mental health.
“He made me realize that I knew nothing about depression, I knew nothing about mental health issues,” F wrote. “I had this vague idea of what it was and I was embarrassed to think I could help with the little bulls.”
F called for “better assistance to those with a mental illness”, citing an earlier example where Bernstein had called the police at risk of suicide.
“These people can almost feel the places they need to be protected. How right? Friends don’t think calling for help is the right thing to do, when they know that the mental bodies they are sent to behave like creatures unable to understand , “F wrote.
Bernstein’s brother Garrio wrote on Twitter to confirm his death, “My baby brother Byron is gone. Rip. He left just like my older brother Guy. I have no siblings. “Guy committed suicide when Bernstein was just 6 years old,” Bernstein said in a YouTube video posted in January.
