New Mixer superstar, Ninja, is 'disgusted' at Twitch, his old home

Ninja, who became the face of Twitch while playing battle royale games like H1Z1, PUBG, and Fortnite, is known to be a family-friendly streamer for the most part. He said Twitch doesn't promote streams on anyone else's offline page, including streamers who have signed with competing platforms.

To add to the mess, on August 11, one Twitch channel streamed Fortnite and Minecraft-themed porn for over two hours before it was taken down - a stream that was "recommended" on Ninja's now-defunct channel.

However, Ninja's video soon turned sour, explaining that he is the only streamer suffering from such advertisement of other channels and apologizing to children for possibly seeing pornography advertised on his account. This refutes Ninja's claim that Twitch doesn't do this with any other dormant channels, "Just me". Currently, there are no recommendations on Ninja's channel and Twitch brought back the live chat.

If you visit his Twitch page you won't find his old broadcasts: instead, you'll be presented with a list of popular live channels.

He also said, "The lewd content that appeared on the Ninja offline channel page grossly violates our terms of service". According to the information gathered in this sense by the editors of The Verge in the days immediately following the announcement of the Ninja transfer on Mixer, Tyler Blevins would have received approximately 50 million dollars to marry the Mixer cause and leave Twitch. He concludes with an apology to Ninja, "It wasn't our intent, but it should not have happened".

A great end to the weekend; a couple unsettled days this week
Storm chances on Sunday will be limited to northwestern Kansas, especially late in the afternoon through the evening. Chance of showers and thunderstorms in the morning, then showers and thunderstorms likely in the afternoon.

Having an account with pornography being recommended was a mistake, however, so they've permanently suspended the account in question while they investigate how such a mistake could happen.

As for his old Twitch account which amassed 14 million followers, Twitch repurposed it to showcase other streamers on the platform.

"So for anyone who saw that, for anyone whose kids saw that, I apologise, and I'm sorry".

Twitch says that the launch of Twitch Studio is in an effort to open up streaming and give new streamers an easier experience of getting started.
