Disguised Toast’s departure from Twitch

Disguised Toast revealed that Twitch, as a streaming platform, offered its content creators the least amount of revenue. The streamer said that the pay YouTube and Facebook Gaming offer is more than double and triple the amount Twitch offers.

Toast claimed that he was quite unfortunate with regard to his dealings with the service. He said that he was given an offer from Twitch back in 2019. The offer given by Twitch was 30 times less than what the alternatives offered. Adding salt to the wound, the amount Twitch offered was already less than the money he received streaming with Twitch.

YouTube Gaming has made quantum leaps with regard to attracting streamers. The company has signed deals with a lot of big streamers who were previously associated with the platform. The organization is also actively working alongside streamers to make the platform similar to its main rival in terms of features.
