Twitch was slammed this week with plenty of stories in between, from alleged gambling abuse and alleged harassment to revenue sharing changes and more. We rounded out each development with some feedback from the community.
What is the Twitch Tsinging scandal and harassment?
The debate over the ethics of gambling and the timing of Twitch is at a boiling point this week.
Many streamers and community members have accused Twitch of allowing content creators to play live on stream, while others have defended the practice.
I told you earlier that this YouTube channel shared their own experiences and discovered their gambling addiction. He offered the tearful apology and that led to other major streamers like Pokimane and Mizkif urging Twitch to do something about his gambling stream.
Despite all the difficulties, Trainwreck says they are effective against them.
To be clear, people scapegoating SLOTS, BJ & not blaming the individual are the real problem. Regardless, SLIKER WAS SPORT, THE DON’T DISDIGNATION LETTER, THE ONE TYPE I GET THE OTHER I COULD GET A LOSS DAILY, OTHERS A HARD HEALTH &/NOT SAVE. /

Mizkif didn’t approve of Trainwreck. In fact, gambling companies only work with Train because he makes millions of dollars.
This led to a heated exchange on Twitter between Mizkif and Trainwreck, with both claiming that Mizkif covered up an incident in which Crazyslick groped Adrianah (another streamer who advanced with Sliker), which Crazyslick denied. Ice Poseidon leaked DMs between him and Mizkif showing Mizkif making homophobic and racial slurs. Other streamers shared their stories of allegations of harassment of Crazyslick, as reported by Dot Esports.
It’s so much more than that, and more detailed threads and topics go into more detail.
However, Mizkif issued a statement and was suspended from the company, which hired an outside law firm to investigate the situation.
History repeats itself Poopernoodle encourages the community to pay attention to the victims.
A streamer for Endpoint in the UK asked a question about the situation.
Poopernoodle was one of several victims abused by Method Josh and nearly two years ago shut down the Warcraft raiding guild Method – a situation that barely led to the raiding guild’s demise – and again said how many victims should be watching , and it will become so much more so that they don’t have to listen to the org (OTK in this case).
I hope Mizkif will reach out to the victims he knows to apologize. He never got back to me after allowing his abuser not to hear. But still, thousands of people online sympathize with what lost them.
I hope he reaches out personally to the victims, he knows about it. Sco never reached out to me, but once I didn’t hear such a word from my abuser. And yet I watched the thousands of people whose sorrows he had lost. pic.twitter.com/yRR665MCo1/ I read.

She also said that I wanted to tell people that there are no flashes when it comes to sexual assault. And I hate it because people downplay their trauma in real life by calling it drama.
Poopernoodle spoke on stream about how people treated her with caution because she told me she had a history of abuse.
Twitch is the destination of some gambling streams.
On Tuesday, Twitch released a gambling statement on its platform.
There are illegal websites without licensed licenses in the United States or other jurisdictions that provide adequate consumer protection.
A full policy update is coming from Twitch on October 18th.
The news caught on, with some like the UK-based confusion ringing the bell on Twitch to ban all forms of gambling from the streaming platform.
It’s a good start to quit gambling. has been around for a while.

Twitch shares earnings and streams.
Twitch has always had a 50/50 revenue share on its platform.
Still, the best and most popular streamers had a below-average split of between 70 and 30 favors.
For the streamers still taking advantage of those premium deals, a new deal was struck, adjusted so they could keep their seven-to-30 stock split for the first $100,000 earned from subscription sales.
Earnings over 100,000 will be split according to the 50/50 stock split standard. We have now announced this change, but it will not take effect until after June 1, 2023. According to this, streamers are only affected when their existing contract is due for renewal.
He continued: We need to discuss the cost of our service. The cost of broadcasting live video with high definition and low latency to almost every corner of the world is too high. The cost is more than $1,000 per month with Amazon Web Services Interactive Video Service (IVS) generated plans, which is basically Twitch Video Live Video.
Several streamers are reacting to the news, with RTGame Daniel highlighting that YouTube appears to be a good alternative.
Twitch will not exist in 10 years if they continue to capitalize on their viewers and creators. YouTube looks a lot more effective when it comes to live streaming.

This is a super-googy statement. With TL:DR, you reduce the revenue of your largest affiliates by suppressing your ads so that you pay a premium for your average viewing experience. He said it’s a noble word to just eat the ads and try to get more ads down everyone’s throat.
Discussion moved towards a new platform, Fanhouse, which offers 900/10 sales and promises integration with Twitch, as mentioned in this Twitter thread.
When I started Fanhouse, the first thing I demanded and fought for my co-founders was a 90/10 revenue split to the creators. Why? Since I was a creator, I knew how much it cost a creator in money. For me, who didn’t have another job, it meant no food or food.

Child abuse report published on Twitch.
For the purpose of a chaotic week for Twitch, Cecilia DAnastasio published a report to Bloomberg about child predators using Twitch to ensure children livestream.
The report covered some specific examples of how the platform can be used by predators.
Twitch said in a statement that preventing child abuse is one of our most fundamental responsibilities as a society. We do not allow children under the age of 13 to use Twitch, and we are committed to preventing our service from being used for malicious purposes.
We know that online platforms can harm children. We’ve invested a lot of money in the last two years to better stay ahead of the bad actors and discourage users under 13 from using Twitch.
