First we had Twitch Plays Pokemon. Then we had Twitch Plays <insert game here>. Now, Twitch viewers are going to have a chance to collaborate and install Arch Linux. What could possibly go wrong?

And yes, that was a rhetorical question. Everything can – and probably will – go wrong once it starts.

Just like Twitch Plays Pokemon (and the many, many, many variants), it will put the most popular keystroke in the chat every ten seconds. However, unlike Pokemon, pretty much anything from your keyboard will be recognised – letters, special keys, space, enter, backspace. This is going to be madness.
