Per the twitch policy, inactive usernames are recycled every 6 months. With that said, I have been vigilant for 3 years, attempting to acquire a username that has been inactive since its existence. This username is not someone that all ppl would want. its actually very similar to my twitch username minus 2 letters.
I would like the team to follow through on the policy and actually release the inactive usernames so that the streamers that actually put in work can utilize them for their own benefit, in turn for the benefit of the company
I'm with you! Been on the hunt for @Tiques for literally YEARS. Maybe close to a decade now. Trying to do the same for other platforms too, I use an underscore almost everywhere. Drives me nuts, especially as a streamer when trying to direct people to my account. Fingers crossed they release something soon!
I feel your pain I can't even find the fatal account name to try and message an get him to release it
My husband has had the same issue! He’s the original itsmethatoneguy on PlayStation, Xbox, league of legends, yahoo and more. The account that has his screen name has not been active since he started and had to add a 1 at the end which viewers give him **** about on stream. It’s been 5 1/2 years now and he still gets told he can’t have it.
