Twitch Patch Notes Episode Reveals More Details About Recent Policy Changes

Ray Apollo and Mary Kish sit down with Mike Minton, Twitch’s Chief Monetization Officer, to clarify several recent policy changes made by Twitch.

Mike Minton dives into how Twitch is working on improving communication between staff and users to ensure policy changes are understood. He also explains that there is a formal process for how Twitch receives feedback from users regarding policy changes to smooth the process.

This episode covers:

  • Addressing recent communication issues

  • Twitch Turbo

  • Content Classification Labels

  • New Creator Dashboard

  • Native Twitch Alerts

  • Twitch Partner Plus Program

  • and other Questions from Chat

Personally, these Patch Notes episodes are an incredibly important resource give us direct access to Twitch leadership like Mike Minton and Dan Clancy (Twitch CEO). Hearing their first hand perspective and listening to how they answer difficult questions (from the host and from chat) gives a really good sense of where their head is that regarding changes to the platform.

If you’re a streamer reading this, I greatly encourage you to listen in.
