Twitch Suspends Trump’s Channel for ‘Hateful Conduct'


I saw the Reddit Ban Thread but didn't see one for this. I'm not familiar with Twitch, but the more places that put a stop to his hateful conduct, the better. Yay for decency.

Twitch, the livestreaming platform, said on Monday that it was suspending President Trump’s channel for “hateful conduct,” in what appeared to be the first deliberate suspension of one of Mr. Trump’s social media accounts.

Twitch, which is owned by Amazon, said two recent streams on Mr. Trump’s channel violated its rules. One stream was of a rebroadcasted 2015 campaign event in which Mr. Trump made comments about Mexico sending drugs, crime and rapists over the border. The other was of his recent rally in Tulsa, Okla., where he talked about a “very tough hombre” breaking into a woman’s house at 1 a.m.

“Hateful conduct is not allowed on Twitch,” a Twitch spokeswoman said in a statement. “In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed.”

I think I like this: sounds like a start-up similar to Facebook with guts in their editing department.

Actually, after further reading I think I'll watch this from a distance!
