WE DID IT! TwitchPlaysPokemon was victorious in just 16 days, 7 hours, 45 minutes and 30 seconds. With only 122 million chat messages. When can we do this again? (Oh, tomorrow, awesome!)

By now you probably know about this simplistically awesome phenomenon: Twitch chatters controlling the outcome of a game of Pokémon Red/Blue. It reached the eyes and instant admiration of Twitch staff Thursday evening, and after a quick Friday morning blast, this intriguing test of the infinite monkey theorem has shot into the stratosphere of most watched and most interactive on Twitch. While the stream has crossed more than 75,000 concurrent spectators, the total number of unique Twitch members who have participated via chat is more than quadruple that amount.
