Not to mention the Boost feature has received some criticism from Twitch’s own developers. However, the site ignored all criticism and added the feature anyway. All the money spent on Boost goes directly to the Twitch platform.

“We think it’s a great way to show support,” said Twitch project manager Jacob Rosok on stream in defense of the feature. It is actually an ingenious concept to improve the platform. But deep down, everyone knows that it will only favor rich streamers. It will only allow the rich streamers to get richer and will ignore the streamer who is struggling to build a formative audience.
