Twitch has reversed CodeMiko’s ban after she was suspended for seven days for using a shock collar on herself during a recent stream.

With almost a million followers on Twitch, there’s no doubt that CodeMiko is among the most popular creators on the purple streaming platform.

Known for her v-tuber streams, CodeMiko has almost 2,000 people that regularly come by to hang out every time she goes live.

On February 27, Miko was hit with a ban from the platform after using a shock collar on herself during a recent stream.

Right after the ban, CodeMiko’s Twitch channel disappeared. Instead, it just shows a message from the platform.

“This channel is temporarily unavailable due to a violation of Twitch’s Community Guidelines or Terms of Service,” it reads.

While Miko hasn’t addressed the ban on Twitter, she did share with her community on Discord what exactly got her banned from the platform.

“It’s cuz of the shock collar,” she said. The Twitch streamer did not specify how long the ban was for.

During a recent stream, Miko and her community were playing games like ‘you laugh you lose’ where if the creator laughed at something, she had to shock herself.

Twitch TOS reads: “Twitch does not allow content that glorifies, promotes, or encourages self-harm. We also prohibit activities that may endanger your life, lead to physical harm, or encourage others to engage in physically harmful behavior.”

Just a day later, Miko took to Twitter to update fans on the situation. In a celebratory post, Miko claimed that Twitch had reversed her ban and even removed the strike against her account.

She also revealed that she’d been initially banned for seven days, but is now free to start streaming on Twitch immediately.

Luckily for Miko, the strike won’t count against her and she can continue broadcasting as normal. In the meantime, head over to our entertainment section for more news.
