There are all sorts of unexplained issues on Twitch. This one seems to have a final version.
Former Twitch employees rather rarely speak out on issues related to Twitch and its operation. It is very possible that this has to do with the contracts that TTV signs and the restrictions that come with them.
However, one former Twitch employee decided to dispel doubts about bans imposed on accounts automatically. Is it possible to ban someone by sending mass notifications?
Mass report on Twitch – does it actually work?
According to what a former Twitch employee says (on the occasion of a major drama), there is no such thing as automatic bans. A large number of reports, on the other hand, can contribute to a ban, although this one is initially verified by a certain number of people.
This is exactly what xQc said on the occasion of the affair, however, it doesn’t really matter in this case.
This is at the same time a confirmation of Twitch’s own words from 2 years ago. At the time, the platform insisted that there was no such thing as automatic bans based on the number of reports.
Of course, not everyone is convinced by this, and it is hardly surprising. There have been many bans in the past that were granted under very strange circumstances.
