Twitch is rolling out new rules around harassment and hate

Additionally, starting on January 22nd, the Confederate flag will be added to Twitch’s list of hate symbols and banned from streams, “given its historic and symbolic association with slavery and white supremacist groups in the US,” the company said. Hate groups and their propaganda are explicitly prohibited this time around, too. Emotes will also be subject to scrutiny under the new policy, even without accompanying text. – Jessica Conditt, Engadget »
