#ADayOffTwitch is about Hate Raids. I want you to think about this before you stream. People are allowing exceptions for contract streamers who depend on streaming for income. That's fine.

What I care about with whoever hops on today and crosses the picket line are intentions
#twitchblackout is a protest and boycott about Twitch's incompetence and negligence to marginalized creators who wish to escape from the world just like everyone else. However, as we know by now, we don't get that kind of luxury. Fandom and hobbies are a battleground
Battleground?

Yes, a battleground.

The war? None other than the notorious "Culture War". Hate Raids are a continuation and an attempt to reignite this bullshit yet again.

O que é o #twitchblackout ? (thread em português)
É um protesto de 24h durante todo o dia 24 de junho, como um apelo à Twitch para que seja mais rápida em suspensões e banimentos de streamers que estejam sendo investigados por racismo, sexismo, homofobia, agressão e assédio.
Também tem um abaixo-assinado na Change.org para pedir por essa mudança. chng.it/rKk5XPZg

Good morning! If you are streaming today during the #TwitchBlackout, here are some tips:

1. Tell your viewers what's happening. You don't have to be eloquent. Just talk about what you feel is wrong and needs to change.
2. bit.ly/TwitchAbuse - context info, resources, charity info, ways to take action. Share it with your audience.

3. Raise some money - @WeAreTiltify makes it easy and safe to raise money for charity. Check the doc for some charity suggestions.
4. Mute or turn off alerts to discourage subs/bits for today. Point your community to charity, Paypal, Patreon, Ko-fi, etc.

5. Tweet with #TwitchBlackout and use it in your stream title. We are all part of the movement. Let's spread our message.

#TWITCHBLACKOUT : A Thread

containing actionable goals which have been brought up by the people who use the platform and are directly affected by Twitch's lack of enforcement. I have also attached past threads from other creators who are demanding change.
In addition to what others have proposed, in addition to petitions that should be signed it might help to have a clear list of what we need from @twitch in the future. the #twitchblackout will not fix everything itself but hopefully it lets others know where we stand in an 1/?..
effort to speak out for the better of OUR platform. Twitch is the home of many of us and we hate seeing our friends affected by the lack of support they've received.

So here it goes, I will also link Jambo's doc once more so this can really be a one stop thread for info...
