Twitch channel banned after streaming porn to over 5,000 viewers

Yet another random channel was discovered to have been live-streaming porn on Twitch, and it amassed quite a large viewership before getting shut down.

There is no doubt that the 'Just Chatting' section on Twitch is probably the most unpredictable category on the platform, as a lot of channels end up doing a lot more on their streams than "just chatting."

The latest example of this came on May 12, when a channel was found live-streaming full blown pornography to over 5,000 viewers.

The channel was not well-known by any stretch of the imagination, as evidenced by the fact that it had a default badge and only 20 followers.

Perhaps the funniest aspect of the whole thing was the fact that the title of the broadcast was set as 'Porno,' so whoever decided to go live with the video had no intention of hiding his content.

It came as no surprise when Twitch took down the channel shortly after Slasher posted the tweet about what it had been streaming.

Broadcasting pornography, of course, is in direct violation of Twitch's Community Guidelines, which state that "Nudity and sexually explicit content or activities, such as pornography, sexual acts or intercourse, and sexual services, are prohibited."

The only question that remains is how the platform's admins and moderators allowed the channel to get all the way up to 5,000 viewers before finally shutting it down.

Rocky day for Twitch

Pornography being streamed to 5,000 viewers on their website was not the only lewd issue that Twitch had to deal with on May 12.

Just a few hours prior, the platform came under major fire when they showcased a bizarre pole dancing stream on their front page.

This isn't the first time something like this has happened either, as a channel was banned several months ago for showing hardcore porn on stream.

At the end of the day, it's hard for Twitch to try and regulate the millions of channels that exist on their platform, so stuff like this is bound to continue to happen as long as people are given unverified access to stream live.
