Twitch, the platform that offers a streaming
Of video live owned by Amazon.com, has temporarily suspended the account of Donald Trump for promoting hatred. In this way, when trying to access the profile of the President of the United States now, a message appears informing us that the content is not available.
The Amazon platform thus joins other large social media companies that have already vetoed Donald Trump posts, such as Facebook and Twitter.
Twitch has made this decision after Trump broadcast on his channel his recent miting in Tulsa, a content that, according to the platform, violates the rules related to hate behavior and harassment policies.
Specifically, Twich vetoed the profile why Trump did negative comments about migrants
Mexicans. In one of the videos that have been vetoed by the platform, Trump defines as “very tough man” an assailant who entered the house of a woman, in addition to criticizing immigration.
The company explains that “hateful conduct is not permitted in Twitch. In accordance with our policies, President Trump’s channel received a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on the broadcast. “
The Amazon network has a policy of “zero tolerance”For hate behavior, which prohibits discrimination and harassment of others based on characteristics such as race, religion, gender, age, and sexual orientation. Company rules say it “will consider a number of factors to determine the intent and context of any reported hateful content” and that compliance actions could include “indefinite suspension.”
Trump’s Twitch profile was created last October in view of the 2020 presidential campaign. Twitch says it made it clear to the president’s communications team when the account was created that they were not going to make exceptions to politicians. “Like anyone else, politicians on Twitch must adhere to our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines,” the company said at the time. “We make no exceptions to political or newsworthy content, and will take action on content that we are informed of that violates our rules.”
The measurement occurs the same day that Reddit has removed the subforo The_Donald, although in this case it is not a space promoted by the environment of the president but of independent users. In this subforum moderation rules were continually skipped.
