Amouranth discussed her recent ban from Twitch, as well as her previous bans from Facebook and TikTok, in a new video posted to her YouTube channel. Overall, Amouranth stated that she has not been notified by Twitch as to why she has been banned this time. She also stated that she is unsure if she will be allowed to return to the streaming platform in the future or if she will be permanently banned. She did, however, point out that her bans from Twitch and Instagram came just days after both websites were hacked. “When you think about it, it’s kind of crazy. Instagram was hacked, Facebook was hacked, I was banned, and so on “she says “When Twitch is hacked, I am banned. There appears to be a pattern here.
She specifically stated that YouTube is one place where she expects to spend more time in the future.
Furthermore, she stated that the latest round of bans will not have a significant financial impact on her. She said at the time that she could spend the rest of her life “not thinking about money,” but she has previously stated that much of the money she makes through Twitch and other platforms goes to causes she cares about. As a result, she’ll continue to look for ways to generate revenue in any way she can.
