Predators are using Twitch’s short form feature to circulate abusive material.

Child safety on Twitch continues to be a problem. Bloomberg reports that Twitch’s “clips” feature is being used to share child sexual abuse material that’s being viewed by users.

By contrast, when it comes to moderating clips, Twitch relies solely on its users to report instances of suspicious or upsetting material.
