Top Twitch Streamers Are Leaving the Platform for Greener Pastures, but Why?

By

Twitch, the ginormous online streaming platform owned by Amazon, has found itself in a bit of hot water recently over community and posting guidelines that many users are finding a bit ridiculous. Like the time Quqco wore a Chun-Li cosplay that was deemed as "sexually suggestive" (spoiler alert: it wasn't).

But the bigger problem with Twitch isn't the fact that their rules are irking its user base, but that a lot of the site's top streamers are leaving.

So why is everyone leaving Twitch? 

It all started earlier in the year when Microsoft announced that its Twitch competitor, Mixer, would be exclusively featuring Ninja, who is arguably the most popular live streamer in the world right now. The man also known as Tyler Blevins is an international star who gained popularity for the amazing feats of virtual insanity he'd regularly perform in Fortnite, Epic's Battle Royale masterpiece that's captivated the hearts and minds of millions and millions of gamers.
