A popular live-streaming platform for gamers, Twitch, banned Fortnite experts and content creators x2twins. x2Twins are twin brothers from Australia who are known by the name x2Twins. x2Twins, a YouTube channel that uploads Fortnite content, has over 2.28 million subscribers and have over 400 million views. Discover the details of the incident, the twins’ age, and more.
Twitch banned the x2Twins from its platform on June 13, 2021. No plausible reason could be provided. Through a tweet that said “Just got banned from Twitch?” their followers shared and responded. Additionally, they stated that they did not understand why they had been banned from Twitch, as they have no strikes and have not done anything that violates Twitch’s rules to their knowledge.
On June 16, both Jesse and Jordan Eckley was unbanned. It appears that x2Twins has not been banned by Twitch for heavily reporting or trolling accounts. Despite the ban being temporary, the streamers were shocked. The hashtag ‘freethetwins’ trended on Twitter as soon as the news spread on their social media accounts.
Twitch’s history of banning users is shady due to unjustified bans that occur at random. Most of the time, the platform does not disclose why users have been banned and do not respond to questions about why they have been banned. Some of the streamers who have previously been banned were Dr. Disrespect, Sodapoppin, Roflgator, and Wolv21. Additionally, Twitch has temporarily banned Donald Trump, the former United States president.
