Twitch have announced they have decided to delay their updated guidelines from February 19 to March 5. The community guidelines on sexual harassment and sexual content on the platform.
This comes after massive community backlash from both viewers and streamers alike. One of the main issues is that a streamer can be punished by things people within their communities do to other streamers on the platform. While this isn’t a massive deal for smaller streamers, larger streamers on the platform such as Forsen, Sodapoppin, and DrDisrespect could technically be in trouble for something somebody else does who regularly comes into their streams.
Twitch will also improve their auto-mod tool.
