Twitch streamers and users alike are taking a day off Twitch to protest the company's inability to take action against harassment that has plagued the platform. It's working.
At its core, the video live streaming service Twitch is a magical place where users can directly connect with their favourite content creators in real-time as they are performing.
In response to Twitch's inaction against these raids and other harassment issues going unaddressed, Twitch streamers staged a virtual walkout to bring attention to the ongoing hate being experienced on the platform.
The gaming community is in large a safe and welcoming place, however toxicity does exist in certain pockets of the space.
Although Twitch is still relatively active, the #ADayOffTwitch initiative is certainly putting a dent in Twitch's viewership.
