Some of the top content creators have been able to develop incredibly lavish careers from their time in the industry, with ad revenue, sponsor deals, and a collection of other opportunities opening up for them.

While many began with a career in uploading to YouTube, however, the rise of live streaming saw various creators move over to Twitch, yet still had a presence on the video platform.

After various YouTubers started to receive strikes, Fwiz clarified that if “the main/sole purpose of the content is to drive people off YouTube & onto another site, it will likely violate [YouTube’s] spam policies.”

Fwiz recommends that YouTubers should create a full upload with audio and video, rather than just text and a URL linking to their Twitch channel.
