A Twitch on Wednesday (07) sent a message to content creators stating that revised its Conduct and Harassment Policies.

Similarly, the rules of conduct will also include behavior outside of Twitch that poses a risk to the community of users and content producers. “This includes serious attitudes of hatred and offense, including threats of mass violence, child sexual harassment, leadership or participation in hate groups, among others.”, Says the message sent by the company.

Unprecedented and evolving stance

To enable the verification of complaints and the application of punishments, the service will adopt a partnership with a third-party law firm specialized in the area. Furthermore, Twitch established the email [email protected] in which users can register misconduct anonymously – the conventional means already offered by the platform will be maintained.

This attitude related to misconduct outside the platform is new and unusual, both for Twitch and for the sector in general, but after hearing your opinion, we believe that its application is crucial. This process is interactive and continuous. With your comments, we’ll evaluate the policy and identify ways to improve it in the futureO”, complementa a Twitch.
