The U.S. military has suspended its video game streaming on Twitch after being accused of banning viewers who asked about U.S. war crimes,media reported. It is reported that the U. S. military has previously used Twitch as a tool to promote and recruit soldiers. Rod “Slasher” Breslau, an eSports consultant who first reported the story, said the Army team would stop streaming, socializing and participating in the upcoming Twitch Rivals competition.
Breslau said there is no official timetable for when to return, and twitch has not canceled official cooperation with the U.S. Army and Navy eSports teams.
A U.S. military spokesman confirmed the news to GameSpot: “The team has suspended streaming to review internal policies and procedures and policies for all specific platforms to ensure that those involved in the field are clear before returning to streaming.” “These “policies and procedures” include how military video players deal with critics on their channels.
