PS4 Twitch streaming to see tighter regulation, "non-gaming content is not allowed"

PlayStation 4's Twitch streaming options were used to host a variety of live chat shows using the console's bundled camera app The Playroom. The broadcasting company is poised to cull any non-related gaming streams via Sony's console after several indecent shows were halted.

The news follows this couple's phone in chat show, broadcast entirely over Playroom and PS4 for several hours.

It comes from a Reddit thread that suggested Twitch was issuing bans to PS4 users streaming The Playroom. Lewd and indecent streams were given the chop, while several Reddit users stated that Twitch was closing broadcasts due to explicit comments posted in the PS4's chat bar.

Twitch then took to Twitter to lay out its terms:

I've been watching Pat stream Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag this morning. He swears a lot. Don't get banned Pat!

What do you make of the above?
