Fake entity tricks Twitch into banning left-wing streamers

Fake entity tricks Twitch into banning left-wing streamers

Seven different Twitch channels were taken down, citing Digital Millennium Copyright Act takedown requests over streams of the Democratic primary debate. These included Streamers Trihex, David Pakman, The Majority Report, among others. It was later found that the claimant (Praxis Political) listed was a likely nonexistent political firm, with no clear connection to CBS News.

They took down leftwing and right-wing commentators. I checked through a bunch of right-wing commentators all got hit in YouTube.

It's not funny that these people's loves were strangled for a minute there, I know some people use Twitch for bread money. (expand) But it's always hilarious to read about people getting tricked by low effort shit like this.

I'm not crying a tear here, but the right should never stoop to using the left's tactics

That sucks. Censorship is everybody's enemy. Hope they catch the dirtbags but I doubt it.

Important to note that this is not a partisan, but a class issue.
