From today Twitch has a new set of rules for streamers. As previously announced, Twitch finally updated Community Guidelines. According to the new rules, streamers can be punished for inappropriate clothing. Could this be the end to the plague known as "Booby Streamers"? Also, streamers can be punished for turning the blind eye to the content of their chat that violates the Comunity Guidelines. This means that from now on, streamers must use tools like AutoMod, other third party software or build a moderation team.
"Creators are role models and leaders of the communities they create or foster around them. Creators should consider the consequences of their statements and actions of their audiences; we ask that you make a good faith effort to quell any efforts from those in your community to harass others". Community Guidelines also state that content creators can be punished for harassing someone off the Twitch. Twitch will not monitor other platforms but will take action if they receive reports of any inappropriate behavior. Fear not, Twitch moderation team will only take action if there is substantial evidence about the negative off-Twitch behavior.
Starting from today, all users must follow the updated Community Guidelines. Also, all previous content streamers have will be filtered and removed if it gets flagged for violation of new rules. Twitch also asked the streamers to put their best effort into removing clips that contain any violent or sexually explicit content.
