Streamers of Twitch should avoid hate raids with this new tool
A couple of days ago, Twitch has unveiled a new tool which will detect and block users who are evading bans. This is done in an attempt to help streamers who have been victims of online harassment.
Over the past couple of months, several content creators on the streaming platform have faced waves of racist and homophobic harassment, also known as “hate raids”.
With the new “Suspicious User Detection” tool, streamers will be able to identify dubious accounts and flag them to moderators.
As Twitch is experiencing over 30 million daily connections, it is important for the company to take such measures in order to ensure safer spaces for its content creators.
