The problem of raids that incite hate
According to denounce, some of the creators themselves are responsible for making _ raids _ (migration of all viewers to other channels at the end of their direct) to any of the affected groups. The will of these gestures is subverted, which generally serve to give a push on spectators to smaller or unknown content channels. The purpose of those raids infected is none other than inciting hatred, moving insults and messages that, ultimately, are harSpanish Communitysment and violate both creators and the content consumers themselves of the platform.
The protest, which is bSpanish Communityed on do not make any kind of direct or get into twitch throughout the day of this Wednesday , is a boycott that can detonate an Amazon response. If there are no viewers, no advertisements are printed or the advertising of them is consumed.
The Spanish Community of Twitch hSpanish Community transferred the message to other colleagues in the profession and their own followers, warning that today there will be no content with which to tune. Now it is Amazon’s turn to give an answer and take action.
