In the dramatic incident surrounding Twitch’s controversial ASMR metadata, streaming superstar Imane’Pokimane’ Anys shared her views on the handling of the platform and how Twitch’s actions created an “inevitable time bomb.”
Twitch has received strong criticism from its community for its platform’s infamous “hot tub meta”, but this controversy has now been replaced by scrutiny of new and more controversial trends sweeping the world. The anchors ranged from wandering in the hot tub to performing ASMR performances in gym clothes.
Many other anchors described this as a very inappropriate TOS. The latest major player to share his thoughts on Yuan is Pokimane, who expressed concern about the future of Twitch because of increasing opposition from viewers and advertisers. Poki first pointed out his early conversations with fans during the Yuan period. tub, where she predicted that if Twitch combats this particular trend, creators participating in these broadcasts will only find another way to “break the limit”.
She added that the problem itself stems from the Twitch tools used to classify such content, which is severely lacking. “You are creating an inevitable time bomb,” he warned, referring to the platform’s failure to adequately address the situation from the start. “You will continue to have the same problems,” he warned and continued to criticize Twitch.
Instead of solving the root cause: the extremely messy TOS and the lack of effective restraints, by simply putting band-aids on the places that many creators think are serious injuries. The creator also shared a concern that he believes many others have overlooked: the impact of the controversial meta on established ASMR creators who are largely overshadowed by streamers joining the category to join the latest money-making trends.
“I feel very sad for legitimate ASMR artists,” she shared, and pointed out that many creators may feel tired: grunting into the microphone outside? Terrible, unfortunately. Pokimane also made a strong comparison with a similar situation that happened on YouTube, called “Apocalypse,” and, like others who openly opposed Twitch’s handling of these goals, he believes that the platform is on the right track.
Endure his own end said,”I really hope that Twitch will not get to that point,” he worried and warned that if similar incidents happen on streaming sites, many major creators may be classified as “adult content”, anyway. Lost advertising revenue. They participate in these goals. Although some anchors are banned from participating in ASMR goals, it remains to be seen how Twitch will eventually deal with the latest wave of controversial content, but if anchors like Pokimane are worried about the result, then yes. The future is a good sign.
