WHAT HAPPENED?

Popular Twitch streamers Pokimane and Myth have said streamers should be more responsible if they know their audience is full of younger viewers.

Myth explains how big-name streamers have the potential to do “a lot of damage” when they misuse their platform. Pokimane then brought up the topic of big streamers with younger viewers.

It blows my mind and it’s very frightening to me that some kids spend more time with a content creator than they do with their own parents. Therefore they value their opinion or how they set an example more than they do their own parents.

If you know your audience skews towards being younger, you just know that’s the reality of it. It’s almost like a responsibility that’s thrust upon you whether you like it or not.

The Twitch stars discussed their thoughts on streamers who believe “it’s not their job,” with both agreeing that they believe the statement is just a way to make them feel better about not caring about their impact.

Poki mentioned that she believes Twitch should handle younger viewers better and mentioned the idea of making a kid’s version of the website.
