Twitch plans to tackle off-site violations of site rules. Representatives of the company published in the blog examples of cases for which users can be blocked under the new regulations.
Representatives of the site said that it is quite difficult to consider incidents outside the service. Therefore, Twitch began partnering with a law firm with experience in this. The platform administration called the new user monitoring policy “a necessary measure.” She also encouraged users to report violations of the service regulations by email on Twitch.
At the end of 2020, the company revised rules for counteracting aggression and incitement to hatred on the site. Under the new regulation, users can be punished for using emotes that indicate racial and other stereotypes in a negative way. With the introduction of the new policy, harassment includes obsessive comments of a sexual nature and compliments, if the site user considers them unnecessary.
