#ADayOffTwitch Protest Impacts Twitch’s Viewer Totals

Published

twitch news

A large number of twitch streamers took September 1st to stage their #ADayOffTwitch movement to protest Twitch’s inactions against the growing wave of hate raids and harassment on the platform, and the movement had impact.

According to Twitchtracker, showed just how much of an impact it made. Twitch usually averages a peak of 4.5 concurrent users, yesterday’s protest brought those numbers down to 3.5 million concurrent viewers, as you can see in the image below:

While the Amazon owned platform did not directly address the marked dip in viewership, it did issue a statement regarding the protest, but it seems to be the “same old” blanket statement that Twitch has been criticized for.

“We support our streamers’ rights to express themselves and bring attention to important issues across our service,” a Twitch spokesperson said, according to Eurogamer.

“No one should have to experience malicious and hateful attacks based on who they are or what they stand for and we are working hard on improved channel-level ban evasion detection and additional account improvements to help make Twitch a safer place for creators.”

Despite the message, Twitch hasn’t taken any real-impact action to address the ongoing issues.
