Twitch Admits It Got Tricked Into Banning Streamers Talking Over the Democratic Debate

People stream themselves doing anything and everything these days, a cultural shift services like Twitch have openly embraced, as they’ve moved past their roots in gaming. It’s no surprise, then, that people would want to stream themselves watching and responding to the ongoing Demoratic debates, as the party chooses its nominee to go up against President Trump later this year. What they didn’t expect was to have their streams killed and accounts banned by Twitch right in the middle of the debate happening last night in South Carolina.

Trihex already went through this once last year iirc, from a copyright claim from CNN during the primary debates. Interesting that he took precautionary steps this time and still got banned again anyways.
