CodeMiko is a virtual Twitch streamer who has been a victim to Twitch ban, last year in
September 2020 she was banned two times in a row (temporarily). However, Twitch has
once again banned her from the platform temporarily on January 19.
There has been a lot of rumours and speculations revolving around the community regarding
this ban. However, she has finally opened up on the real reason behind her ban — and it
wasn’t just for saying “simp.”
What is the reason behind CodeMiko Twitch ban?
The early rumours and speculations were that she was banned for saying the word ‘simp’ which
is one of the words which has been banned by Twitch earlier in January. However she has
completely denied the rumour after her ban.
Instead, she was banned for leaking a streamer’s private information, including their full name and email. This doxxing is a breach of terms and service, even if there was no malice. Miko has accepted the ban fully.
“During an interview, a female streamer and I were talking about female harassment online and I asked her what was the worst comment she had ever received. When I saw the email, it was pretty bad and was more like a threat than a comment,” she said.
“From my experience, threats are almost never sent from a user’s actual email address, but throwing up the screenshot got me banned. I only wanted to shine the light on harassment that streamers face and did not mean to violate terms.”
When is Miko returning to Twitch?
She has officially announced her comeback date to be February 5, which is exactly 17 days
after the suspension and it also clears out the ban duration which is speculated to be 14 days.
In the statement she has also mentioned that she will be returning with “game-changing new stuff,”.
