Twitch is cracking down on perhaps the biggest issue it faces: hateful conduct and harassment.
The company began working on a new policy in early 2020 and will nearly double the size of its safety operations team this year.
Updated Twitch guidelines specifically ban blackface, swastikas, and the Confederate flag as well as unwanted comments about a person’s appearance and sexually explicit remarks.
The streaming platform added a dedicated sports category to their platform in July 2020 and has hosted a diverse slate of sports programming.
Twitch has grown from 17.5 million to 26.5 million users this year.
- NFL “Thursday Night Football” broadcasts
- English Premier League matches
- USA Basketball exhibitions
- National Women’s Hockey League games
