Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

was good but is very bad now

it was good once. now it's just collection of boobie streamer, toxicity, scammer and very rare 1 or 2 good streamer. viewers just try to scam, snipe, abuse reports, insult and so on... since there literally is no support at all you, as a community member, are exposed to all of that without any protection at all.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Twitch is softcore porn advertised as gaming. Pathetic website

Do not let your kids on this website, it is a joke. Twitch is softcore porn advertised as gaming. Yes there is gaming but one of the largest viewing and recommended section on twitch is now porn. The moderating on the website is absolutely pathetic and the people responsible are greedy losers who imo should be ashamed of themselves for displaying porn to 10 year old kids based on false advertisement. Pathetic website from a pathetic company. Did I say this company is pathetic?
