Arnold Schwarzenegger Vs Twitch toxicity
While Twitch is certainly the top choice when it comes to streaming platforms, the Amazon-owned medium has been under fire of late, for being a breeding ground for negativity and rampant toxicity.
In addition, Twitch also appears to be implementing a rather skewed ban policy, which often leaves content creators frustrated. The toxic Twitch chat has been a persistent issue, which continues to ail the streaming platform.
Arnold Schwarzenegger seemed to take on this problematic trend through his recent tweets, which invited several reactions from the online community.
Check out some of the reactions to his tweets online:
As evident enough from the tweets, Arnold Schwarzenegger certainly seems to have the backing of his fans, who couldn't agree more when it comes to calling out toxicity on Twitch.
Seems like Twitch really needs to get its act sorted, and maybe a wake up call from The Terminator could work wonders.
