Twitch has boycotted Felix Kjellberg (also known as PewDiePie), a widely acclaimed content creator, and left the internet-based local community in conjecture.
Amazon’s driving streaming platform Twitch, which is owned by Amazon, has banned the web personality and notable content creator PewDiePie. Twitch’s decision is particularly important, given PewDiePie’s massive YouTube following (nearly 111 million subscribers) and his position as one of the most influential and powerful web-based creators.
PewDiePie began his journey to fame when he started distributing We Should Play recordings on YouTube. He shared his responses to activity games and games of frightfulness with millions of viewers around the globe.
His Twitch channel was latent for at least two to three years, despite the fact that his Twitch channel briefly exploded on Twitch. He had gained over 1.5 million followers. The internet-based community was stunned when on the 21st of Spring, PewDiePie started a real-time video on his Twitch channel highlighting episodes from Trailer Park Young Men.
PewDiePie’s Twitch Channel started a “PewDiePie Valiantness” stream after rumors about a hack were exposed. This circle was a large collection of old recordings that could be viewed by curious viewers who would then share their opinions on the live chat.
Twitch, which is known for its lack of transparency, announced a restriction to PewDiePie’s Twitch Channel on May 9 without providing any explanation. Twitch has made the decision to ban PewDiePie’s channel from its foundation, leaving fans wondering why the move was made.
Twitch did not give any clarifications, but many people have speculated that the boycott may be linked to the scandalous “span event” which occurred during a Player Unknown Milestones live stream in September 2017, when PewDiePie almost used a racial insult in response to a shocking incident in the game.
According to different speculations, Twitch’s strategy of marked content may have played a role in the boycott. One user pointed out that PewDiePie’s Twitch Channel was a web-based version of his YouTube recordings. This might have been a reason why Twitch didn’t help because the rules for YouTube’s content are more lenient than Twitch’s.
Another user expressed their disappointment with Twitch’s choice. They suggested that the stage purchased PewDiePie’s recordings in order to boycott him. This, they believed, was proof of Twitch’s mistake.
PewDiePie is yet to comment on the new restrictions imposed by Twitch. PewDiePie has not commented on his new restriction from Twitch.
