Financial Times: Amazon’s Twitch bans some channels after researchers find pro-Russia propaganda

Financial Times: Amazon’s Twitch bans some channels after researchers find pro-Russia propaganda. “Amazon-owned Twitch has moved to ban several accounts on the livestreaming platform after research detailed how pro-Kremlin propaganda had spread on the network. Shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine, Twitch said it would move to ‘prohibit harmful misinformation actors from using our service’. But a report from the Tech Transparency Project detailed multiple accounts pushing pro-Kremlin falsehoods, such as claims the invasion was ‘de-Nazifying’ Ukraine and a Russian ‘special operation’. Other streams peddled falsehoods about “biolabs” being set up in the war-torn country.”
