In a blog post earlier today, Twitch says that streaming content that breaks any game's terms of service is against its rules. Now all that's left is for YouTube to ban the practice as well and quit paying streamers that promote gambling and you might make actually be getting somewhere.

As a reminder, per Twitch’s Terms of Service, broadcasters are not permitted to stream content that breaks the terms of service or user agreements of third-parties. As such, content in which the broadcaster uses or promotes services that violate Valve’s stated restrictions is prohibited on Twitch. Our Rules of Conduct lists other examples such as playing pirated games and playing on unauthorized private servers.
