[HOT] : Leak Twitch: the leak reveals a list of streamers with certain privileges ….
Everyone is probably not housed in the same boat on Twitch . It won’t be a big surprise for some regulars but some streamers could well benefit from a special status …
Thus, creators of content seem exempt from sanctions if they do not respect the conditions of use of the service.
Twitch and equality are two
No need to lie, some hugely influential streamers are almost untouchable on Twitch. If well-known creators such as Alinity, Amouranth or even djWHEAT have violated the platform’s regulations on several occasions, the sanctions taken against them have always been derisory or even non-existent. For example, the second on our little list was only banned for a handful of days for posting suggestive content on her channel.
These facts could suggest that streamers enjoy a privileged status compared to ordinary people. Such allegations have never been confirmed by Twitch but they are verified today * i. Indeed, following the hack of the service and the leak of 125 GB of data on 4chan, a list of streamers visibly “protected” by the site owned by Amazon has been unveiled.
A pass despite the faults
It is the streamer Asmongold who communicated this famous list containing the name of creators. The platform would stipulate that the main stakeholders should not be banned for any reason. We find there users like Ricegum, Loltyler1 or djWHEAT. For example, the latter is used to broadcasting content in the company of his minor son (which is normally prohibited). After several reports, Twitch asked its teams not to apply sanctions against it if this reason is reported by spectators.
And of course, the names on this list have one thing in common… They generate a lot of traffic (and therefore revenue) on Twitch. Thus, the “small” and “large” streamers are clearly not on an equal footing. Finally, specific members of the Twitch teams would be the only ones empowered to take action against these creators (if necessary). What to start a new controversy after the publication of the salaries of the richest streamers in the world.
