In response to yesterday’s attack on the US Capitol, Twitch took further steps. The Twitch account of US President Donald Trump has now been suspended.
The move came after Facebook locked the presidential accounts on Facebook and Instagram. Twitch representatives said in an email to Kotaku that the move was to prevent the president from “inciting further violence.”
They said: “In light of yesterday’s shocking attack on the Capitol, we have disabled President Trump’s Twitch channel.” “Given the current special circumstances and the president’s inflammatory remarks, we believe this is to protect our community. And the necessary steps to prevent Twitch from being used to incite further violence.”
The spokesperson said that the suspension of services currently has no end date. “We are committed to minimizing the harm that caused the government transition and will reassess his accounts after he leaves office.”
It is not clear what constitutes a suspension in this case. Donald Trump’s account can still be viewed on Twitch, and earlier videos uploaded to that account can be viewed. Twitch may temporarily stop broadcasting or uploading new videos.
This is the second time the US President’s Twitch account has been suspended. Twitch suspended its account of broadcasting “hateful content” in June.
Twitch’s (and Facebook’s) decision to kidnap the president’s social media account is a bit like a flight to Washington, DC after Ma escaped, and encourages a group of Trump supporters to step on Capitol Hill. Since the election defeat in November, the content that the president has posted on social media is hardly different from what he posted.
For Twitch, it’s not like Donald Trump’s skipping and streaming on the channel. Fort night At the same time spread burning. The account seems to be used to replay Trump’s rally with gamers.
