Twitch’s top executives are leaving: Twitch has had a rough year, and this one is no different.
Top creators like Valkyrae are leaving the company for YouTube, and so are top-level executives.
In Twitch, anyone can stream content and talk to their fans, but it’s not always the best way to do this.
Twitch has been difficult for both creators and fans in the past few years.
Streamers have been banned for sometimes unjustified reasons, and people in the Middle East haven’t been paid.
Since early 2022, top-level Twitch executives have been leaving the company.
Cecilia D’Anastasi, a reporter for Bloomberg, explained this in a tweet.
She says that sources say that Twitch doesn’t have a plan or a leader and that it has lost touch with the people who are the most crucial part of the platform.
The other posts in her thread say that when the execs left, the company hired new workers who didn’t want to learn about the creator community and its importance.
This led to a lot of the company’s unpopular decisions over the years.
That’s not all: She says that the company’s growth outside of gamers made it more professional and diverse because it hired more people of color and women to lead.
Do you know why Twitch has been so controversial in the last few years and what might have been going on behind closed doors?
Former and current employees say that the company has gone far from its original goal.
They haven’t been very good at talking to their fans. They recently wrote an open letter that should set better standards for Twitch.
This shows how far the company has gone from its original philosophy.
Being more diverse and professional is a good thing, but not taking the Twitch community into account when making decisions is a step in the wrong direction.
The people who make the videos on Twitch make the platform unique from YouTube, even though it is similar in many ways. In 2021, there will be a lot of controversial bans on creators because of DMCA strikes.
Even though some people are angry, this news is also good.
A TV and film category is even being talked about as a possible way to stop some bans in the future.
