When you are a streamer, it might not be wise to promote another streamer. Even though it's a normal rule when it comes to competition in a crowded game streaming room, it looks like Twitch doesn't give anyone the choice. Advertisements for Ninja New Year's Eve shows appear in other streams like "Dr. DisRespect." It is safe to assume that this is not going well, and popular personalities and other streamers call Twitch for promoting competitors on their channels.
According to a report by Variety, streamer Lance Aurion said, "I work hard for every viewer that I get and that sometimes doesn't even make it into the top 10, how would I grow if people went to watch Ninja instead of streaming me because advertisement? This is my riddle, twitch. "The reactions from other people are very similar.
Even though it wasn't Ninja's fault that Twitch advertised its competing channels in other streamers' live streams, their undelete responses did not help them. Variety managed to capture a screenshot of Ninja which said, "This event will be broadcast to millions of people and continue to provide exposure to Twitch, which in turn allows other streamers to get more viewers. What do you dislike? Or just because of me? instead of asking Twitch to respect the wishes of other customers, he implies that people just don't like it so why do they complain.
Hopefully Twitch will issue a formal apology because there are no streamers who have to promote competition. Ninja generates a lot of revenue for Twitch, but that doesn't mean that the company can do whatever it wants with other customers. We will keep you posted as soon as we know more or have updates.
