News culture Amouranth attacks Twitch and its ban policy!
Published on 01/12/2022 at 17:28
After targeting Twitter earlier in the year, this time Amouranth is going after Twitch. The platform’s number one streamer isn’t a fan of its banning policy and made that known during a recent livestream. In question, a certain lack of transparency.
Amouranth vs Twitch
The streaming star is obviously Amouranth. Real name Kaitlyn Siragusa is coming back stronger than ever after two turbulent months. For good reason, the young woman expressed her distress to her audience in October after sharing the appalling details of her relationship with her husband. Since, Amouranth has made big changes to finally make a triumphant comeback and become the only woman on the Top 100 Twitch Streamers Rankings.
More present than ever on social networks and the various streaming platforms, Amouranth is experiencing a life-saving revival and grants a few interviews after her big performances. Recently, she explained at the microphone of FullSquadGaming why she had never signed exclusive contracts with Twitch, Facebook or Youtube. It must be said that the relationship between the star streamer and the platform that made her known has not always been good. Several times banned from Twitch, Amouranth also gave her point of view on the ban policy of the platform.
A lack of transparency
Earlier in the year, Amouranth had already attacked Twitter, accusing the social network of censorship. This time, the streamer directly targeted her main platform, Twitch. Still with FullSquadGaming, the videographer shared her point of view on the platform, which lacks transparency with regard to its banishment decisions.
I hate their banishment policy. It feels like there’s a disconnect within Twitch. Looks like the security center doesn’t even communicate with the rest of the teams on the platform and they are in charge of suspending people.
According to the streamer, the security center would refuse to communicate information concerning a suspension to possible intermediaries working for the platform, thus leaving streamers in the most total vagueness.
If you have a partner manager, most of the time they are not able to tell you what you have done. They just tell you “yeah, there you broke the rules of a generic category” (…) You don’t even know what to avoid! It’s really annoying, they ban you and can’t tell why.
An annoying situation according to Amouranth, who is not the only person active on the platform to have issued deductions vis-à-vis the ban policy of the platform. Several streamers have already questioned the reasons given by the platform for their suspension. From there to Twitch deciding to review its policy, nothing is certain.
