Ninja disgusted with Twitch after it shows pornographic content on deactivated profile

Ninja disgusted with Twitch after it shows pornographic content on deactivated profile

Twitch partner Dr. Disrespect is also contemplating making the switch too, meaning we could potentially see Twitch's title as the "leading live streaming video service for video games in the US", dwindle. Last night, Blevins tweeted a video criticising how Twitch had turned his channel into an "ad page" - and one of the promoted streams was a porn broadcast. Since the move, Twitch has been using Ninja's channel and audience to point viewers to other streamers.

Ninja took to Twitter to air his grievances in a video posted on Sunday, with the text "Disgusted and so sorry". She stated that Twitch is discontented with Ninja's departure and intend to ruin their brand as outcome. The stream made it onto the list of recommendations on Ninja's channel, as shown in this image.

"To help ensure they find great live channels we've been experimenting with showing recommended content across Twitch, including on streamer's pages that are offline", Mr Shear said.

Then Blevins found out what Twitch was allegedly doing with his channel. "Just me", the streamer said in a video posted to Twitter. "This helps all streamers as it creates new community connections".

The mechanism uses a high ISO in darker settings that helps reduce noise, resulting in clearer pictures. Production of the new chip will begin later this month, Samsung said.

"The lewd content that appeared on the Ninja offline channel page grossly violates our terms of service", he said. He concludes with an apology to Ninja, "It wasn't our intent, but it should not have happened". After having built a brand for eight years, Ninja feels that Twitch is promoting other streamers piggybacking on his brand while he doesn't have any say in the matter. No excuses" and that the platform has thus far "suspended these recommendations while we investigate how this content came to be promoted.

As for his old Twitch account which amassed 14 million followers, Twitch repurposed it to showcase other streamers on the platform. If anyone saw that, for anyone's kids who saw that, I just wanted to apologise - I'm sorry.

Twitch says that the launch of Twitch Studio is in an effort to open up streaming and give new streamers an easier experience of getting started.
