Twitch has still been auto-renewing subs to Ninja’s channel despite having his sub button removed days before announcing he’s streaming throughout multiple platforms. Fortunately, those impacted can expect the money to be refunded imminently, Twitch confirmed in a response to Dexerto.
On September 1, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins completely disappeared from social media, blacking out his profile pictures and changing his headers to display the words “time out.”
Just minutes later, he was no longer partnered on Twitch as his checkmark and sub button disappeared from his channel — leading fans to believe that he was moving to YouTube Gaming before he announced that he would be multi-streaming.
Nearly a month later, those who were subbed to the iconic content creator before his announcement revealed that Twitch has still been auto-renewing their subs, although Ninja’s channel isn’t monetized on the platform anymore.

It appeared that he wasn’t the only one dealing with the auto-renew as well. Another user replied, revealing that they talked to Twitch and they wouldn’t do anything about it.
They said: “Yep. I contacted Twitch and they said they wouldn’t do anything about it, but they’re still taking my money.”

Ninja replied to Allenownz’s tweet with the words “lol what,” and retweeted it, implying that he was confused about the situation as well.
In a response to Dexerto, a Twitch spokesperson assured any subscriptions that were automatically renewed, were done so by mistake. As a result, those who have been charged for the auto-renew sub can expect full refunds right away.
