End of hot tub streams? Amouranth's channel reportedly demonitized

For Twitch streamers, ad revenue a big portion of their income alongside subscriptions and direct donations, especially for someone like Kaitlyn "Amouranth" Siragusa, who averages upwards of 10k viewers per broadcast.

Losing the ability to monetize such a big crowd is definitely a huge issue, which is what Amouranth now has to deal with, as according to the content creator, Twitch has removed the ability to run ads on her channel.

The 27-year-old hot tub streamer stated on Twitter that the ad revenue had disappeared from her channel analytics, without any warning coming from Twitch.

"Yesterday I was informed that Twitch has Indefinitely Suspended Advertising on my channel Twitch didn't reach out in any way whatsoever. I had to initiate the conversation after noticing, without any prior warning, all the ads revenue had disappeared from my Channel Analytics," Amouranth tweeted out.

While Twitch has stated there's nothing inherently wrong with hot tub streams and isn't looking to shut them down anytime soon, removing the ability for a channel to be monetized doesn't set the right precedent according to Amouranth.

"This is an ALARMING precedent and serves as a stark warning that although content may not ostensibly break community guidelines or Terms of service, Twitch has complete discretion to target individual channels & partially or wholly demonetized them for," she added in a follow-up tweet.

Twitch has yet to issue a response regarding this situation.
