Macaiyla’s Twitch channel has been steadily growing over the past year and the streamer had over 120,000 followers when she received the temporary ban.

Why was Macaiyla banned from Twitch?

As the streamer explained, there was nothing she could really do about it, and Twitter doesn’t have any way to let you know what’s coming up on the website, saying that it was "extremely random."

The streamer knew almost as soon as she got onto Twitter that she was in trouble.

Since the initial ban, Macaiyla said the time has been reduced from three days to 24 hours - which she thinks is fair, all things considered.

It may not have been intentional, but she did end up violating the rules, which typically doesn't go ignored by Twitch's staff.

A week of NSFW Twitch slip-ups

Macaiyla wasn't the only streamer to run into some unwarranted NSFW content this week. Another streamer, Korean model Addielyn, accidentally went live while changing in her room.

But, the most talked-about mistake of the week, came from mega popular streamer Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa, after she revealed too much of herself during a live broadcast, again, accidentally..
