Twitter is one of the most popular streaming sites today. With thousands of famous streamers using it for their gaming sessions. Now the platform announced changes to its income distribution, which surely will not be to the liking of many.
Through its official social networks, the streaming site announced how the income distribution will be from 2023. With this new model, streamers will be able to keep 70% of their earnings when they generate their first $100,000. From there, half and half will always be distributed.
Currently the most famous streamers on Twitch keep 70% while the platform 30%. While the smaller ones were in the 50/50 that they will implement now. The difference is that now everyone will fall into this distribution.

This change will begin to take place on June 1, 2023. At the moment none of the big names on the site have spoken about this change. Although it is possible that it will not be long before we hear from them. We will have to be careful.
Why did Twitch make this decision?
According to the statement, the main reason behind that decision was a feeling of ‘unfairness’. Since Twitch had a 70/30 deal with select streamers, which wasn’t fair to those just starting out.. Although they also mentioned another factor.
The second reason has to do with the cost of video hosting, which has increased in recent times. ‘Delivering live, high-definition, low-latency, always-available video is expensive‘ mentioned Dan Clancy, president of the company. What do you think will happen to the streamers?
