Twitch tightens community guidelines to combat hateful conduct

Twitch had announced updates to its community guidelines, all of which will go into effect on February 19th at 9am PT.

An anti-harassment and hateful conduct policy has been enforced to ensure that all Twitch streamers feel welcome on the platform.

Any content deemed hateful will result in an immediate and "indefinite" suspension. The platform will now also "consider verifiable or harassing conduct that takes place off-Twitch when making moderation decisions for actions that occur on Twitch".

This means that a creator's conduct on other mediums could affect their status on Twitch.
