    The exclusivity agreement feels like a big first step for smaller streamers, you get sub badges, emotes, ad revenue, etc. However, with all of those aspects achieved, there comes a giant roadblock loaded into the agreement: the 24 hour exclusivity agreement.

    This agreement states that any content shown on your Twitch channel must be exclusive to Twitch for 24 hours after the end of the stream it occurred, prevents streamers from editing and uploading clips of their channels over a full day past the event. It also prevents multicasting to other platforms, limiting exposure to growing streamers.

    If you consider the growing popularity of other platforms, this limitation is counterproductive to promoting growth for not only the streamer, but the platform as well. Should the Affiliate reach partner status, that would allow them to say, "Hey everyone, I've decided to sign exclusively with Twitch, so if you like the content and would like to continue to support, please check me out over there." This would increase traffic to their channel and Twitch as a whole.

    TL;DR - The exclusivity agreement prevents streamers from growing and is inadvertently kneecapping your site.
