Can you watch the presidential debate on Twitch?
If you want to watch the debate on the video game streaming platform Twitch, your only option is Donald Trump’s feed. Joe Biden’s campaign hasn’t set up a Twitch account and other news outlets like the Washington Post seem to have abandoned the service. WaPo joined Twitch a couple of years ago, but hasn’t livestreamed anything in over eight months.
Is twitch removing political and newsworthy content from Trump's channel?
The company said when Trump’s channel was started that it did not exempt political or newsworthy content when removing content. The move comes days after Twitch said it would clamp down on harassment on its platform following allegations of sexual abuse and harassment.
Why is twitch so bad?
Twitch has largely evaded the pressure faced by YouTube and other platforms in recent years, in part because its lengthy broadcasts can be harder to review and in part because the platform seems to take a more aggressive stance on moderating speech, rather than attempting to be a platform for anything and everything.
