After considering user feedback and the potential loss of content creators, Jerk decided to abandon plans to update its marketing rules.
According to BBC News, the implementation of such standards would have constrained the methods through which banners generated revenue.
The changes, which were announced on June 6, might limit logo designs to 3% of the screen and prevent users from embedding adverts into their streams.
As Twitch put it in its announcement about the change back, “We will not avoid your capability to participate in direct relationships with sponsors – you will continue to own and manage your sponsorship service.”
“We want to collaborate with our community to build the best experience on Twitch, and for that, we need to be transparent about our actions and the motivations behind them. We appreciate your input and assistance in making this adjustment.

Currently, users receive 50% of Jerk’s revenue from their clients, but other banners receive a 70%-30% split. It does not collect money that programmers generate through adverts and donations.
