Twitch addresses hot tub streaming controversy by adding a hot tub category

A controversy over so-called “hot tub streamers” blew up earlier this week when Twitch suspended advertising on the channel belonging to Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa, one of the platform’s most popular streamers, without notification. The issue, she was later informed, is that Twitch had deemed her streams as “not advertiser friendly,” even though they don’t actually violate Twitch’s content guidelines.

Today, Twitch directly addressed the controversy in a blog post, and also unveiled a new approach to helping users and advertisers avoid (or embrace) streams featuring hot tubs and bathing suits (and those which might be deemed overly suggestive) that’s actually quite simple and practical: The introduction of a new category called Pools, Hot Tubs, and Beaches.
