Popular content creator Paymoney Wubbym received a controversial ban after streaming inside of a restaurant with the restaurants permission. After being banned on November 15th, Wubby got no communication from Twitch in four days before tweeting about Twitch’s silence.
Paymoney Wubby was unbanned, and had his first stream back on the platform on November 22. This is where he completely body bagged Twitch’s practices, and posted their apology that he was definitely not happy with.
This has been a hell of a week watching this story unfold and I’m happy with the way it happened. When you’re streaming on such a saturated platform like Twitch, it takes forever to get your channel up, going, and making you money. And that’s if it even happens. And all it takes is a little time off the platform and you lose a lot of money. A day as a streamer can be make or break you, it really is the ultimate grind. I’d be livid too if I got banned for 5 days, and got no response about my appeal, just to get unbanned and get a “my bad” email. Luckily, Mr. Wubby came back to Twitch big dick swinging and ended up hitting 200k followers on the 23rd, and 11k subs on the 24th.
But, that wasn’t enough to forget about the fuckery he was just put through. On November 24th, during a stream – Wubby laid out the terms that would get him to move to Mixer.
“Maybe not for long, things might happen — I might have to change schools and then we have to be friends — but right now, I’ll be your friend to the tune of $5 million for five years. But at this point, that’s where it’s going to stay.”Paymoney Wubby
$1 million a year for 5 years sounds like a lot, but it’s really not. Especially when you’re talking about Microsoft. I can guarantee this clip ended up in their inbox and it’s in discussion. What a better way to keep trying to take market share than showing the community that someone wasn’t happy with Twitch, and you’re there to give them a more reliable platform.
Something to think of.
