Ninja disgusted with Twitch after it shows pornographic content on deactivated profile

Epic Games Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins at the Fortnite world cup

The streaming personality recently signed an exclusivity deal with Mixer, and so far things seem to be working out, with massive subscriber numbers and a huge surge in popularity for Microsoft's streaming platform.

Ninja isn't the only streamer upset by this development, either: popular Fortnite streamer Valkyrae expressed similar disappointment with the platform, writing, "Twitch???".

Ninja took to Twitter saying he was "disgusted" to find pornography among the channels being promoted on his former page through the new feature, which Twitch has now suspended. Should Twitch be allowed to share other channels' content on an offline account?

How a porn stream made it past Twitch's moderation and into the top streaming list the way it did remains unclear. However, in the 10 days since they had also decided to make the most of all those redundant bookmarks and browser address-bar autocompletes by providing a list of other live Fortnite streamers for visitors to Ninja's old channel page to go and check out in his now-permanent absence. "Well now, there was a porn account, who was number one being recommended on my channel and I have no say in any of this stuff".

"We're trying to get the whole channel taken down to begin with, or at least not promote other streamers and other channels on my brand, on my profile".

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. "It wasn't our intent, but it should not have happened". He used to stream his gameplay on Twitch and has now moved to the new Microsoft's Mixer platform.

Usually, when a streamer stops streaming on Twitch, their Video on Demand content is still available for viewing.

According to TechCrunch, it accounts for just 3% of the time spent by people watching video game streams online, compared to 72% for Twitch. "So for anyone who saw that, for anyone whose kids [saw that], or just obviously didn't want to see that, I apologize and I'm sorry".
