Twitch has grown to become one of the most-loved entertainment platforms. However, a site with a massive user base can also be an ideal breeding ground for fake and dangerous information. This is precisely what the company’s new policies are designed to combat.
There are new provisions within the Spam, Cheating, and other Unlawful Conduct policy that prohibit sharing information that is not appropriate via Twitch. If there is a violation, the seller’s account will be removed. The banhammer is not used for any misinformation or misinformation.
In addition, the user could be penalized if they fulfill certain conditions. As per Twitch, it is a user profile who propagates widely disproved and well-known subjects laden with malicious information.
The undesirable types of data include myriad conspiracy theories, harmful treatments, and a variety of other things. However, it’s important to note that it’s acceptable to provide such information as part of discussions or as an opinion of your own.
Twitch has stated that Twitch own website claims that falsified information isn’t often seen on the site at the moment. According to service reps, the update to the rules will not affect most Twitch users.
Before the policy change, Bloomberg ran a story on the exodus of staff members on Twitch. Before, the website had been expressing its frustrations anonymously, claiming the firm’s focused on profit and speed and not its customers’ safety or services. The internal conflict led to massive reductions in staff.
According to reports, the number of employees who have quit the company since 2021. There will be another 60 employees who will leave in 2022, including the department heads. Some ex-staff of Twitch believe that the departures will continue and grow. The reason is that there is a lack of interaction with the fan base. The team’s main goal is to maximize profits from streamers rather than the appeal of fans and content makers. As a result, streaming has lost a portion of its loyal viewers and colleagues who were enthusiastic.
According to a previous Twitter director Marcus Graham, among the major reasons behind Twitch‘s failing is the Silicon Valley model of development. The company is continually expanding and bringing on professionals from major IT firms like Twitter or Meta. However, this variety makes the company itself entirely uninterested in such employees as they don’t have any interest in or knowledge inthe game business or in streaming.
Another issue is the inability of managers to hear ranks and file employees. If middle- or lower-ranking employees wanted to inform their bosses about the repercussions of their decisions that were controversial, management would simply not listen to the warnings. These attitudes can also impact the employee’s turnover.
Suppose you believe Twitch‘s analysis for Bloomberg the company has been able to reduce employee turnover. Between 2020 and 2021, the company’s situation was improved dramatically – more than 500 employees were recruited, and the total number of employees exceeded 1,800 employees.
