    Twitch Flatly Refuses to Increase Streamer Share of Revenues

    You'll get 50% and you'll like it.

    Just yesterday, Twitch scored a few brownie points when they said they were going to ban some gambling on the streaming platform. It wasn't much but at least it was something positive. Today, whatever positivity remained was tossed out the window when Twitch flatly refused to increase streamer revenue share.

    A petition signed by over 22,000 Twitch streamers and viewers sought to increase the subscription revenue share from 50/50 to 70/30...

    Twitch to Ban Some Gambling but Not All

    There is still much room for improvement here.

    For some time now, gambling on Twitch lived in this nebulous grey zone where Twitch staff often turned a blind eye to it so long as certain restrictions were adhered to. Things such as referral codes to sites that include gambling were verboten, but streamers often found ways around this while they gambled on stream.

    Allowing gambling on the platform has often been hotly debated from both streamers and viewers alike. Now,...

  • Livestream of Buffalo Mass Shooting Reached Millions of Views on Facebook and Streamable

    Just another typical weekend here in the States.

    On Saturday, May 14 a mass shooting took place in Buffalo, New York. This tragic event where an 18-year-old white male shot and killed at least 10 people was reportedly planned on Discord and livestreamed on Twitch.

    Twitch pulled the livestream from their site within about two minutes of it going live. However, that was still enough time for people to pull recordings of the footage and moving it on to other platforms. Some...

    Twitch Disables Paid Channel Boosts Due to Pornography

    Twitch being horny on main.

    Late last year, Twitch began to test a system that would allow viewers to pay real money to boost a streamer's channel to Twitch's main page. This would perhaps give the streamer some added exposure and help their channel grow. It was also obviously an easy way for Twitch (ie: Amazon) to pull in even more money.

    Today, that grand experiment came to a predictable end. Viewers were using this boost feature to push channels to the main page of...

    Dr Disrespect and Twitch Settle Lawsuit

    A reason for his initial ban still wasn't provided.

    Guy Beahm, aka Dr Disrespect, was permanently banned from Twitch back in June 2020. At the time, nobody in the public had any knowledge as to why the two-timer was banned. Though we still don't know why he was permanently banned, we at least arrived at a point where we can safely say the battle between Twitch and Beahm has come to an end.

    In 2021, Beahm filed a lawsuit against Twitch claiming that the loss of his channel...
