No matches

Things haven’t been great for Twitch over the last several months and after the recent debacle involving Tyler “Ninja” Blevin’s old Twitch channel being used to advertise porn, the CEO of Twitch has decided to speak out.

In a post to his Twitter account, Emmett Shear posted a series of tweets regarding what Twitch aims to do, the porn incident, and an apology to Ninja himself.

In terms of why they were even using his profile to advertise other channels in the first place, Shear had the following to say:

“we’ve been experimenting with showing recommended content across Twitch, including on streamer’s pages that are offline.”

This of course comes after Ninja directly called out this tactic in his own tweet following the incident.

This was met with quite a bit of criticism from the start, but after this potentially brand damaging problem, Shear’s Twitch has reverted the stream to its standard offline page as Twitch has “suspended these recommendations while we investigate how this content came to be promoted.”

Ending his series of Tweets, Shear offered a personal apology to the star streamer, stating “it wasn’t our intent, but it should not have happened. No excuses.”
