Emmett Shear, CEO of Twitch tweeted in regards to the pornographic content a Twitch account was streaming, and that account making its way to the recommended streams on Ninja’s Twitch account.
Ninja posted a video about the whole ordeal and apologized if any of the children that follow him watched the adult content. To read more about it…
Emmett stated in his tweet that they’ve been testing around the recommended functionality, planning to make it live on all accounts in an attempt to give other smaller streamers more exposure.
He apologized to Ninja for the pornographic account making its way to Ninja’s recommended, stating that they are investigating it and will make sure it doesn’t occur again.
Macaiyla a Twitch streamer tweeted back at Emmett telling him that they’ve been lazy and inconsistent on the platform.
“You guys are beyond lazy & inconsistent with your platform. If this means I get banned for speaking out then so be it. There needs to be a change in your staff. It’s so beyond unprofessional. Porn was left up for almost 2 hours. How does that happen? Who are you hiring here?”
Andy Milonakis another Twitch Streamer also said:
“The problem is that we need someone to be the face of twitch to address a lot of problems going on in the community. When thousands of people are pointing out some harsh wrong doing and no one responds to the masses, it feels like it’s swept under the rug.”
It’s obvious Emmett’s tweet wasn’t received well, especially that everyone was wondering why test your new feature on Ninja’s account only and it coincidentally been implemented once he left Twitch to stream on Mixer.
