Twitch Will Soon Ban Users Based ‘Hate’ on Other Platforms

Posted by at 11:43 am on February 9, 2018

Directing “hate or harassment” towards someone on Twitch using other services will be considered a policy violation.

Conduct Twitch deems “hateful” on any platform will result in an “immediate indefinite suspension”.

Sexual conduct rules have also been changed to consider the “context” of a stream.

Moderators will pay attention to clothing, the title of a stream, camera angles and chat moderation when deciding whether something is sexually inappropriate.

The site has been under pressure for some time to deal with harassment on its platform.

The changes to the guidelines come into effect on 19 February.
