No, that's what it says about streaming and influencers and sheep that are easily led. I game all the time and I'm not engaged in any of that scheisse.

If people wanted to watch gameplay videos they could do that on Youtube. People watch people on Twitch because they like the host's personality or other "attributes". The game is irrelevant.

But there is a direct correlation between people watching on twitch and game sales. It's become the most important way to advertise games

You're not wrong. I was merely pointing out Cutter's surface-level knowledge of Twitch. Using words like "sheep that are easily led" is just plain wrong. People decide if they'll buy a game. Sure the streamer can influence that decision, but ultimately the person chooses to make a purchase.
