Female moderated chat
This is one of its biggest overhauls, so Twitch is giving streamers until 12 p.m. 19 to delete archived clips and videos that violate the new guidelines.
The company said that it will be reaching out to streamers “whose current and past content may violate these new guidelines” before the new rules go into effect.
Twitch continues to highlight the notoriously toxic section as one that needs more attention, starting with changes to Twitch’s automated chat moderation system.
“We will also be revisiting our enforcement policies for both partners and non-partners, our appeals process, IRL guidelines, and preventing user-to-user harassment,” the company wrote.
There are lots of people who understand what you're going through and you'll always be able to find someone to talk to.
In our moderated chat, you can also discuss what makes a healthy relationship and identify warning signs of physical or emotional abuse in your relationship.
