En parallèle de cette vidéo numerama a sortie un article sur l'insuffisance de Twitch face au cyberharcelement.
J'aimerai revenir dessus pour ajouter des détails et rappeler pourquoi pour l'instant je ne fais pas confiance à Twitch sur ces questions :…
Twitch existe depuis 2011 et les problèmes de harcèlement des femmes sont connus depuis des années.
cet article interroge 16 ancien et actuel employés de Twitch où on apprend que les femmes ont jamais été respecté "a quoi s'attendait cet streameuse boobs?"…
D'après cette article qui nous apprend que Twitch était raciste sexiste et j'en passe, autant avec leurs employés que leurs streamers, on apprend aussi que la mentalité de Twitch face à un problème c'est de mettre la tête sans le sable et d'attendre qu'il passe.

Et avant de lancer ce live, je reviens sur le #ADayOffTwitch et je remercie chaleureusement twitch de permettre aux gens que j'ai ban de mon tchat de pouvoir follow ma chaine et voir mes lives quand ça leurs chante pour faire on ne sait quoi, c'est pas du tout l'angoisse 👌
Le harcèlement à des forme super insidieuses, pour quelqu'un qui veux vous emmerdé le simple fait de savoir que vous êtes en live et de pouvoir voir tout ce que vous faites, sur quel jeu, quel sujet, c'est leurs donner des outils supplémentaires pour pouvoir harceler ailleurs
Il vont en parler sur leurs discord ensuite, envoyer leurs viewers en éclaireur, réagir au sujet donc vous avez parler pour dire l'inverse et faire en sorte que leurs commu s'excite toute seule contre vous, sortir des tas de trucs de contexte pour attiser la haine à votre égard..

THREAD: A few big name streamers tried to throw doubt on the #ADayOffTwitch movement's impact.

As somebody who works in PR, allow me to breakdown why the past three days have probably caused internal ructions at our favourite streaming platform...
1. A quick coverage pull shows that in the last 30 days, the #ADayOffTwitch movement has garnered just shy of 950 pieces of news coverage globally - granted a lot of these are likely syndications, that's a LOT of noise for what people considered a "pointless movement"
2. Now, if I was working in Twitch's PR department, and I saw that many articles from top tier gaming press (Kotaku, Polygon, PinkNews, etc)...I would be hitting the panic button. Not just because of the volume, but because of what might come next...

#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

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.

No stream today in solidarity with those experiencing hate raids and demanding action.

To those sneering that it won’t make any difference - it’s already trending in the UK and has been written about in many international media outlets.

Obviously there will be some who are contractually obliged to stream today and others who don’t want to be silenced, which I totally understand.

But those who claim that it won’t make any difference because it doesn’t hurt Twitch’s revenue directly are being wilfully ignorant.
Awareness and will do a lot more than a small financial hit and the campaign has been very successful in achieving that.

Twitch is listening so make your voices heard!

🧑‍🏭👩‍🏭Aujourd'hui est une journée de mobilisation pour certains #streamers et #viewers :
#ADayOffTwitch est une tentative de faire prendre conscience à @Twitch des problèmes de #harcèlements et de l’absence d’outils pour lutter contre

Un ptit thread

#TwitchDoBetter #DayOffTwitch Image
L'outil de #Raid de #Twitch est performant et peut être utilisé de pour plein de bonne chose (partager une commu, faire découvrir des chaines ...) et certains l'utilise pour harceler.
Ok, ils pourraient le faire sans l'outil Twitch mais moins facilement.
Les cibles de ces harcèlements le sont pour avoir un sexe (des femmes essentiellement), une minorité ethnique, une identité sexuelle ou une sexualité différent.

Souvenons-nous qu'il n'y a pas d'arc-en-ciel d'une seule couleur ...

it comes as no surprise to ANY of us that most of the top streamers on Twitch are uninformed about hate raids, don't notice them in their own channels & aren't using their platforms to speak up about the harassment and abuse marginalized creators deal with on a daily basis. 🧵
Of the Top 50 streamers on Twitch by average viewership, ONE of them is a woman. Fifty-nine of them are men. Y'all make BANK off of Twitch and most don't look out for anyone on the platform but themselves. that's their choice, sure - but it's a shitty, selfish and gross choice.
before anyone @'s me about highlighting the gender disparity here: sincerely from the bottom of my heart have a very shut the fuck up & educate yourself on privilege.…

Our expectations were low but holy s**t. You just said the quiet part out loud, @/Asmongold

I know there are a ton of comments replying to this calling me a hypocrite because I asked people not to harass those who don't participate.

If you think my tweet was criticising him for not participating, you ought to read it again & again until you understand it.
I criticised his belittling of smaller content creators for starting a movement that he believed wouldn't cause any change.

Yet here we are, two days later and the organiser of this protest has a meeting with Twitch staff.
