Emmett Shear, CEO and Co-Founder of Twitch, has decided to step down and spend time raising a family. Upon his resignation, the new acting CEO will be president Dan Clancy. Upon further inspection of Clancy’s policies, it should be noted he was involved in the controversial revenue changes for content creators on Twitch earlier this year. GameRant has more on the specifics here. Twitch keeps digging itself deeper into the pit of user animosity with its poor decisions, let’s hope that this power shift won’t further that divide between corporation and creator.
