engadget: They're streaming the voice-guided assistants' banter on their "seebotschat" channel, which has a peak concurrent viewership of 34,000. by Mariella Moon

'According to a Twitch spokesperson, the two robotic speakers are running separately and are having a true conversation. "The magic comes from intercepting those messages and altering them to keep things fresh and fun," he said.

'[They] throw shade at each other:
