Twitch has already reversed its ban on Amouranth. Amouranth is one of the most popular Twitch streamers of all time, but her presence on the platform has not been without controversy. In fact, Amouranth has been banned from Twitch a whopping six times over the course of her streaming career.
Amouranth’s Twitch bans have been doled out for various reasons over the years, though not all of them have been created equal. Sometimes fans are clued in as to why Amouranth has been banned from Twitch, but other times the reason is a mystery. Amouranth’s latest Twitch ban marked the sixth time that the streamer has been banned from the platform, and fans are still wondering why the ban was initiated in the first place.
Answers as to why Amouranth was banned from Twitch this latest time have yet to come, but it may not matter much anymore. Barely a day after Amouranth was banned, Twitch has reversed its decision and reinstated her channel on the platform. Twitch is unlikely to comment on Amouranth’s latest ban, so fans of the streamer will have to wait and see if she decides to offer an explanation as to why her channel was banned this latest time.
Some Twitch viewers may point to Amouranth being banned six times and being allowed to return as favoritism on Twitch’s part. Twitch has been accused of being more lenient with its bigger creators, which makes sense from a business standpoint but isn’t necessarily fair to smaller streamers. Without having any context as to why Amouranth was banned for a sixth time, though, it’s hard to formulate any kind of opinion about this latest incident.
Amouranth is not the only high-profile Twitch streamer that’s been hit with a ban recently. Top Twitch streamer Kai Cenat was recently banned from the platform as well, sparking speculation that he could jump to rival platform Kick. Kick’s existence may put more pressure on Twitch to avoid banning its top streamers, as doing so could drive them to the competition.
Twitch’s ban policies have often been criticized, with one of the biggest points of contention being the lack of transparency on Twitch’s part. There are times when people are banned from Twitch without really knowing exactly what they did wrong, and the punishments Twitch doles out seem to lack consistency. It will be interesting to see if Twitch continues to tweak its ban policies moving forward and if fans are ever clued in as to why the latest Amouranth ban happened.
