Twitch is a big franchise
Twitch is growing and changing by the minute. As 20,000 million users on Twitch, who entertain, create and innovate for viewers. Twitch TV wants the platform to be bigger and better. They have listen to outcries of gamers and content creators alike. Talking to other streamers in Discord and raiding someone else live stream to get viewers. Cheer for your favorite streamer with bits and donating to help make it better. Working with brands such as Amazon Prime, Curse and many others. The Twitch community is very sacred in the entertainment world. Again, Twitch expands to cater for streamers and viewers. There is some news about Twitch news system and rules for the platform.
Twitch X Discord
Twitch introduce new rooms for streamers . These rooms can be setup for subscribers only and private. The room must comply by new Twitch community guidelines, meaning no hate speech, sexually suggests and harassment. If you follow these rules, it doesn’t apply to those people. The reason for rooms because Twitch wants to make the platform more friendly. Twitch release a desktop app in 2017, which allows video calls and direct messaging. Also the app features a early discord-like serves. I think this is a great idea for streamer. Discord is a new way to communicate with other gamers. Twitch might partner up with Discord one day just like Streamlabs. This is not nothing new but Twitch did separate rooms already.

Yesterday I got an email about my anime channel not being monetized by YouTube. Being Small YouTuber is hard especially if you cover saturated niches such as gaming, music, vlogs, reactions and more. Going back to what I am saying about the email (image below). My anime channel is not eligible for monetization because it’s don’t reach 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time. I was not surprise by this because bigger YouTuber make controversial videos that screw small YouTubers. The most notable is Pewdiepie using the N word on his live stream and Logan Paul Aokigahara Forest video. These YouTubers have over million subscribers and a huge fanbase. Sadly I don’t have nowhere near those numbers on gaming and anime channel. YouTube is a huge multimedia company where people can upload videos and share them around the world.
What is wrong with YouTube nowadays?
12 years ago YouTube don’t have monetization but users express interest on making videos and uploading them for fun. Nowadays, Google acquired YouTube and add a new feature for content creators to make money with advertising. The term is called Google AdSense which pay advertisers like McDonalds, Pepsi, Warner Bros, Disney and many more. AdSense able content creators to earn revenue but YouTube takes 40% of the advertiser. People went crazy and hopes to make YouTube their dream job. That’s a pipe dream for some but it’s not a get rich quick scheme. There is an agreement that you can’t talk about how much you make on YouTube. All I can say is not enough to make a living that if you are small.
People uses YouTube to expand their brands and become famous to be on TV or maybe film. There is a lot of successful YouTubers who made it big. We smaller guys want to be like them and inspire by their success. I looked up to Youtubers like Roberto Blake because he gives great advice on being an entrepreneur. I highly recommended check out Roberto Blake channel because he is YouTube certified and know branding.
One day I will be successful as him but I am not right now. Big YouTubers sometime look down on small YouTubers. I have to say this “If it were for small guys like us you won’t that become big”. For example David vs Goliath, a showdown between big and small who will win? A small channel can surpass a big one in a minute. If Dave (small YouTuber) known how to use SEO and Algorithm then Goliath (big YouTuber) will topple.

What I mean by that is internet trolls and despicable person get a hold of that information. If you are a successful person in life, trolls will defame and cyberbully someone. That person some doesn’t take insult well due to history of bullying at a young age. In the other hand, normal people tend to turn the other cheek and move one. There is a term “hater gotta hate” because those individuals are jealous of your success. Most of the time, their lives are miserable and wish to be a better person. I will tell you this “If you can do better, be a better person” that my motto. Me completely understand why others are successful than. I work hard to achieve my goal to become an entrepreneur but I am not giving up. You heard me trolls and haters “you will not break me with negativity”.

What is Microtransactions in video games?
The gaming industry is very big on money. Due to development, time and planning goes into video games. It’s natural that some developers want more money to keep their business a flow. Rip-off players is another thing that developers should take note of. Nowadays, video game developers program video games to have in-game currency. In-game currency is what keep gamers from spending real money. Gamers can earn their content by playing through the game. Majority games have downloadable content which can buy with real money not in-game. Notable, this topic came up with EA release Star Wars Battlefront II (2017 video game). During the release of the game, there was a controversy that EA wanted to players to unlock characters with real money. A lot of fans was not happy about the situation and EA lower the price of the character in response.
Here is the story, in the beta players would have to grind 40 hours to unlock a characters. User on Reddit spent $80 on the Star Wars Battlefront II Deluxe Edition and the characters was not accessible. EA’s Community Team defended the change and stated “the intent to make users earn credits to unlock heroes was to give users a sense of “pride and accomplishment”. The statement that EA’s Community Team Reddit post got 647,000 down votes. Adding insult to injury, EA lower the cost of characters by 75% and in-game campaign credits was reduced. This story gain national attention from Wall Street, CNBC and The Minister of Justice of Belgium Koen Geens. Let’s hope EA fix these change and reflect on what to do next.
