Twitch temporarily bans President Trump

Source: The Verge

Twitch has temporarily banned President Donald Trump, in the latest surprise and high-profile suspension from the streaming service. Trump’s account was banned for “hateful conduct” that was aired on stream, and Twitch says the offending content has been removed.

One of the streams in question was a rebroadcast of Trump’s infamous kickoff rally, where he said that Mexico was sending rapists to the United States. Twitch also flagged comments at Trump’s recent rally in Tulsa.

“Like anyone else, politicians on Twitch must adhere to our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines. We do not make exceptions for political or newsworthy content, and will take action on content reported to us that violates our rules,” a Twitch spokesperson told The Verge.

The suspension arrives a week after Twitch swore it would crack down on harassment within the community following reports of assault and harassment from streamers.

5. Twitch is a live-streaming platform, used mostly by gamers.

But recently has been expanding into other areas like the performing arts, education, etc.

They are very serious about keeping a positive and welcoming community.

I now have a Twitch account, as I'm going to be live-streaming my lectures in the fall for my students.
