Twitch suspends live streaming from new accounts after 'gross violations'

Twitch trolls reportedly live streamed porn, terror attacks and Game of Thrones over the weekend.


Twitch has temporarily suspended new accounts from the ability to live stream.


Twitch has temporarily blocked live streams from new creators after content that "grossly violates" its terms of service was streamed over the weekend.

Trolls used the game streaming platform to stream footage of Game of Thrones, porn and the Christchurch terror attack along with hate speech in the comments, according to Vice.

Twitch said a number of accounts targeted the Artifact game directory to share the content.

"Our investigations uncovered that the majority of accounts that shared and viewed the content were automated," Twitch said in a tweet Monday. "We are working with urgency to remove the offending content and suspend all accounts engaged in this behavior."

Twitch added that safety of the community is its "top priority," and it's working to restore access to live streaming as soon as possible.

According to The Verge, the channel for digital card game Artifact is the least popular on Twitch, leading to trolls tagging their content "Artifact" to use the low-key category to stream over the weekend.
