a) It's a holdover from the old days before account linking.

b) All people logged in to Twitch are eligible even if they don't have an account linked.

c) So that you can choose for the prize to go to an account that isn't the one that's linked if you have multiple accounts (e.g. on different platforms).

d) It requires active participation by the winner, showing they actually watched or at least looked at the "Thanks for watching" thread.

e) All of the above?

Why isn't Warframe cross platform?

Because Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo don't want to play nice?  Pure speculation here but I'd guess that with the game being free they want to lock down customers and make sure people don't buy their plat elsewhere.  If you could log in from either a Playstation or an X-box and choose which to buy your plat on then they'd be competing directly on prices, never mind PC players flooding trade with the 75% discounted plat that consoles can't get as a log-in reward.

Don't you need to make a separate account on different platforms? That would require a second email? Then a second linked twitch account?

You could have a separate Twitch account for each Warframe account but you don't have to.  You can also currently watch with an account linked to your PC account for Twitch Drops but ask for any prize draw winnings to be added to your Switch Warframe account if you like.  Not sure why anyone would, but the option exists.

not to mention console player pay for tennogen with plat and if cross platform happened the creators might get screwed

For the same reason updates aren't released for all platforms simultaneously: because it's more difficult for updates to be implemented into non-PC platforms. The owners of the various platforms insist on monitoring content to ensure it does not compromise the console. A good example of why this is done is Deltarune - the earliest versions of the demo would delete the folder it was contained within when uninstalled. Even legitimate releases by well intentioned developers risk damaging the system. Most console devlopers are liable for damages caused by software they officially support.

Did that result in a lawsuit between the console developers and the game developers?
