Twitch is a streaming platform

Recently, Twitch has announced that it will take action against “hate raids” on its platform. These hateful remarks are aimed primarily at women and gamers of colour.

On Twitch, hate raids involve overwhelming the comment section of a streamer with abusive remarks, sometimes using bot accounts. As a response, the Amazon-owned website said that it has updated the filtering tools to better detect hate speech in chat forums and that further improvements are on the way.

These actions from Twitch come in response to streamers who complained about experiencing discriminatory remarks recently. They also used the hashtag #TwitchDoBetter to reach to the streaming platform.

Overall, Twitch is taking the issue seriously and also plans to launch channel-level ban evasion detection and account verification improvements later this year.
