A good example of this is Pekora, she changes her voice and mannerisms (Adding -peko to the end of her sentences, acting extremely social and a mean spirited role and generally messing with her co-workers), but it is known that Pekora's real life personality is extremely shy and closed off, she dislikes large groups of people and is a lot calmer and less chaotic.

It is my belief that the talents' streaming is not considered part of their job and were not included into their set salary(if any.). For me, it's a combination of the creativity put into the various talents' characters and their backstories, quirks, etc (not to mention their art and appearance), as well as the emphasis they put on interaction with fans and the community - even if there's a language barrier to be mindful of.
