Twitch Clips to TikTok, YouTube's Create App + AI Dream Screen, and Pokimane on Wired

Quite the week in the streaming space! Lots of exciting news, updates, and opportunities. But also, one that has seen some controversy over the last few days - I have an important comment on that later in this recap. I'll also be talking a bit more about that on stream today! But, let's just get right into the news!

Twitch News

  • Direct sharing of edited clips to TikTok is now live for all creators. (Pro-tip: take advantage of the 'Save to TikTok Drafts' option to add captions/deeper edits on TikTok before posting.)
  • A new Ad Scheduler experiment will run ads at Twitch-determined frequency and length, optimized to increase ad revenue and improve the viewer experience. Channels included in this experiment will automatically be opted into this system.
  • 20% of streamers will be getting a new Chat and Events experience in the next couple of weeks. It aims to offer more customizable feeds and in-feed notifications of key events.
  • A new global emote PopNemo launched this week. Twitch says it's only available for a limited time.
  • The Shared Ban System has increased the number of channels you can share with from 30 to 50.
  • A new Turbo promotion appears over chats when ads run, encouraging subscribing to the ad-free experience.
  • You can now view, download, and share vertically edited clips on mobile.
  • Twitch is launching a new invite-only Copyright School. Streamers with a copyright strike who are invited to the program may have one strike removed from their account once successfully completed.
  • A new Privacy Center will be launching soon. It will allow creators to understand their privacy on Twitch and access privacy controls.
