The Streamers Strike and Twitch’s Response – 08/23/2021

Twitch’s Blackout movement drew attention by asking streamers and viewers to strike the platform for a day, not watching or doing lives.

In the Game Trends podcast, in addition to explaining and discussing the entire context that generated this movement, we also spoke with a representative from Twitch’s Blackout, as well as receiving a position from Twitch about all this.
