Army of the dead
Twitch introduced a new “pools, hot tubs and beaches ” category Implications on streamers so far has been that ads are taken from people streaming in this category. The verge reports that:
In particular, the ad suspension hit Amouranth, who is one of the platform’s biggest streamers. Her channel is now showing ads again, though it appears her hot tub streams have been removed.
Twitch says its policies on what is and isn’t allowed on the platform aren’t changing. The company is not going to prevent people from streaming in hot tubs or swimwear. While sexually suggestive content remains banned, context-appropriate clothing — like bathing suits in a pool — is allowed.
Jeffanity misses Mixer, twitch seems so unsettled as a streaming platform. For every one thing they do its after they’ve taken 57 steps back . Like there is the amount of harassment women get, the seemingly random permabans, the ad pulling. How do y’all feel about the platform
McDonalds & The American Job Market
Love the pandemic because it has allowed time and pressure to build up at particular pressure points and have since exploded. All the “essential” fast food workers have had it and left these multi million dollar companies struggling. It is going around the internet that a McDonalds location is offering an iphone to qualified employees after 5 months of work in an attempt to get people hiring. Mean while other chains are experiencing same issues with employees including a Hardees where everyone quit so they had go close.
Thoughts/feelings/reactions? Would you rather a livable wage or iphone 6 lol

Best Female Rapper
Niggas are hot over the nominations, outside of CHikka’s reactions people are pointing out colorism possibly playing a role, idk but thats what the internet said. I def had to google Coi Leray.
Im about to start listening to Flo Milli on the reg
Released the nominees for best female rapper- Chikka reacts, but from the point where they want all these people do to their freestyles and production, but wont recognize them for their talent with a nomination. I agree, fuck them.
Meg and dababy have 7 noms each (although last year i think dababy had that many but didn’t win) fuck the industry.
