The /ignore feature and the Unban request section on twitch are just two of the tools to combat trolls. Streamers can also report trolls using the new safety tool. These tools aim to strike a balance between proactive detection and human intervention.
New safety tool aims to strike a balance between proactive detection and human intervention
Twitch has recently introduced a new feature that aims to strike a balance between human intervention and proactive detection of hate content. The new feature, known as Suspicious User Detection, will attempt to detect suspicious activity on the service. It can help in silencing hateful individuals, and can be used in tandem with recently introduced controls that require streamers to provide email and phone verification. However, this tool is still in its early stages and many hate groups may still find a way to circumvent its use.
In an effort to reduce harassment on the platform, Twitch has introduced a new feature called “Suspicious User Detection.” This tool uses machine learning to detect potential evaders. It compares account information to banned accounts and then deals with suspected users based on its evaluation.
