‘Bikini streamers’ banned for being too sexy



TWITCH is finally putting a stop to so-called ‘bikini streamers’ who wear skimpy outfits to increase their subscriber count, or attract donations.

The Amazon-owned gaming website — which is the world’s most popular place to live-stream video games — now has a strict dress code that will come into effect later this month, replied The Sun.

More than 15 million people tune into Twitch each day to watch people stream footage of video games.

Most videos are harmless, but there’s been a growing trend of women broadcasting themselves playing video games with very little clothing on.

Some streams involved a “squats for subs” dynamic, where scantily clad game streamers would perform squats in front of a camera in return for new channel subscribers.



But a new update to Twitch’s community guidelines that focuses on “sexual content” introduces a dress code that means ‘bikini streamers’ will face a ban.

“We want everyone to not only feel welcome on Twitch, but to be proud to be part of the community.”

The new rules come into effect on Monday, February 19 at 5pm UK time.

Streamers will have until then to remove saved clips that violate the new guidelines before they come into effect.
