We hope that Donald Trump, the president of the United States, did not plan to end the night with a broadcast on Twitch. What happens is that he will not be able to use his account since it was deactivated to prevent him from continuing to spread messages that incite violence.
Through a statement, Twitch announced that they made the decision to deactivate Donald Trump’s Twitch account. Although it has not broken any rule of the platform for a long time, it is a measure that was taken to prevent it from using it as a tool to spread messages that lead to events like the one that happened yesterday at the capture of the United States Capitol.
“Given the gruesome attack on Capitol Hill yesterday, we have disabled President Trump’s Twitch channel. Given the extraordinary circumstances and the president’s inflammatory rhetoric, we believe this is a necessary step to protect our community and prevent Twitch from being used to incite further violence”,the Twitch statement said.
