Twitch is a video game-streaming service recently bought out by Amazon. Popular with its many viewers and streamers, Twitch has made its service all about the games and with this new policy, they are trying to keep it that way.
“Dress…appropriately. Nerds are sexy, and you’re all magnificent, beautiful creatures, but let’s try and keep this about the games, shall we? Wearing no clothing or sexually suggestive clothing – including lingerie, swimsuits, pasties, and undergarments – is prohibited, as well as any full nude torsos*, which applies to both male and female broadcasters. You may have a great six-pack, but that’s better shared on the beach during a 2-on-2 volleyball game blasting “Playing with the Boys.”
* If it’s unbearably hot where you are, and you happen to have your shirt off (guys) or a bikini top (grills), then just crop the webcam to your face. Problem solved.
We sell t-shirts, and those are always acceptable. #Kappa”
In the case you weren’t aware, “Kappa” is slang for “sarcasm”.
What do you think geeks? Will this change the popularity of the streaming service? Will making broadcasts SFW make it even more tempting for you to watch while at work? Let us know in the comments below!
