Twitch announced today that partnered streamers on their platform are now allowed to do live content elsewhere. The message is so that Twitch streamers can build their community and interact with other creators that are on YouTube, etc.
Within the last few years live streaming platforms have gone competitive on trying to land certain influencers to their platform exclusively. We’ve seen it in the past with Ninja and Shroud where they have signed deals to stream exclusively on Twitch whereas we’ve seen other creators go onto YouTube. Now all partnered creators can co-stream with others that are on a different streaming site.
One of the main takeaways from this though is that you can not stream simultaneously onto another platform while streaming on Twitch. As there are streamers out there who do like to stream on multiple platforms at once, but that won’t be allowed if you’re indeed partnered.

It seems that Twitch is slowly loosening up with certain rules they’ve been strict about for years now. What else would you like to see change on Twitch?
