BrookeAB Gets Honest About Harassment And Mental Health

As the leading platform for live streaming games, Twitch has responded to community calls for better safeguards and improved hateful conduct and harassment policies and tools. Back in April, the streaming site announced that it would ban users who harass others, even if the harassment occurs outside of its platform, and after a summer of hate raids plaguing its platform, Twitch released a phone verification feature in September to prevent unverified accounts from chatting. Last week, the platform launched a suspicious user detection tool to better identify users trying to evade channel bans. “At Twitch, we strive to create safe and inclusive spaces where our content creators can thrive and build positive, healthy communities,” a Twitch spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “Safety is never an end state, and as long as the reality of malicious actors continues online, we will continue to work to release new security updates and hold ourselves accountable through transparency reports.”
