WHAT HAPPENED?

Pokimane has called for Twitch to add a kids section to the site that filters “inappropriate” broadcasts and categories.

Okay, maybe the way Twitch should manage it is all kids should be on kids version of the apps and platforms, that … just include things that have to go through a filter, so they’re more acceptable for children.

Kids on the internet will regurgitate absolutely everything, even if they have no idea what they’re saying. It’s a shame.

When I first started playing online games I was 11 or 12, along those lines. I remember my experience first going on the internet was great.

I made friends in these games, we did quests together. It was wholesome. Even though they were older, it was a nice, sweet experience. Memories I will treasure forever. Maybe that’s why I grew up so I didn’t harass people for no reason.

According to the 25-year-old streaming star, that’s not the same experience young kids are having on the internet, and especially on Twitch, in the 2020s now.
