Twitch star Novaruu mysteriously BANNED from app and page removed – and no one knows why

FAMOUS Twitch streamer Novaruu has mysteriously been banned from the platform and even she doesn't know why.

She tweeted about the confusion and stressed that the ban is only for three days.

She has almost 150,000 followers on the video live streaming service.

Now, if you click on her profile you just get an error message.

The American vlogger uses her videos to chat to her fans and streams under the 'Just Chatting' category .

She also dresses up, live streams her video game playing and makes ASMR content.

This isn't the first time Novaruu has been banned from Twitch.

In December last year, her account also disappeared for three days.

This was said to be for “operating a contest or giveaway that violates Twitch Terms of Service".

Novaruu had been raffling off hand painted bird houses at the time.

Her recent and mysterious ban occurred on October 19 just after she streamed a game called Phasmophobia and chatted with viewers.

As the ban is only thought to be for three days, she should be back online sometime today.

We have reached out to Twitch for comment.
