Twitch promote porn stream on Ninja's old streaming account

Ninja's old Twitch account was used as a means of promoting other Twitch accounts, some even X-rated

If you happened to miss last weeks news, Tyler Blevins, or better known as Ninja left his home platform of Twitch to move to Microsoft's Mixer. Now, Twitch has gone and done him wrong in what seems to be a retaliation of his platform departure.

Following Ninja's transition to Microsoft's Mixer, Ninja has taken to his personal Twitter account to discuss what has recently happened regarding his departure. According to Ninja, "if you go to Twitch.tv/Ninja they advertise other channels, they don't do this for anyone else that's offline by the way, just me."

Ninja continues and says, "there are also other streamers who have signed with other platforms, who's stream and channels still remain the same. They don't promote other streams, they don't promote other popular channels, but they do on mine. I've been streaming for 8 years to build my brand and to build that channel, 14.5 million followers and they were still using my channel to promote other streamers. Well now, there was a porn account, who was number one being recommended on my channel and I have no say in any of this stuff."

Ninja finishes off by saying, "this is the line, this is the straw, we are trying to get the whole channel taken down to begin with or at least not promote other streamers and other channels on my brand and on my freaking profile. So for anyone who saw that, or anyones kids, or obviously didn't want to see that, I apologize and I'm sorry."

This is an extremely low blow by Twitch as clearly someone or the company themselves has gone out of their way to attempt to tarnish Ninja and his brand. In retrospect, this has completely backfired on Twitch as now that it has been made public it could lead fellow Twitch streamers to think less of Twitch and more of Microsoft's Mixer.

Update: Twitch has already reverted Ninja's old Twitch page back to the standard 'offline' page that is found on every other streamer on their platform. That was quick Twitch...
