Twitch has announced the removal of the Twitch app from the Switch eShop. While the streaming company insists that Nintendo is still a "valued partner," its app will become unavailable to Switch owners in early November, and existing users will officially lose all access to the app on 31 January 2024.

So it's bad news all around for Twitch users who prefer to watch streams on the Switch (are you guys even out there?). Rest in peace Twitch Switch app, you'll be sorely missed by a handful of devotees, I'm sure.
