Twitch are sorry that they put porn on Ninja's vacant channel

Tyler "Ninja" Blevins' Twitch channel has been restored to its original format after the streamer, who recently signed an exclusive deal with Mixer, called out Twitch for using his channel to promote other streamers.

The incident occurred after the Amazon-owned games streaming platform made a decision to list the most popular streams in the Fortnite category on Ninja's page.

The streamer says that Twitch doesn't promote other channels on offline channels and while he apologised for the lewd content that appeared on his former channel, he also slammed Twitch.

But it all went downhill on Sunday morning when, a channel showing porn was one of the most-watched streams on the platform, attracting thousands of viewers before it was shut down by Twitch. He then posted a video shortly after on Twitter, apologising for the content that was recommended through his channel.

It's unusual for a dormant account to be used in this way, and after his complaints Ninja's account now looks like any other dormant Twitch.

It makes sense that Twitch wouldn't want to sit on Ninja's 14.7 million channel followers without using his now-offline channel for some gain.

If you visit his Twitch page you won't find his old broadcasts: instead, you'll be presented with a list of popular live channels. "This helps all streamers as it creates new community connections. So for anyone who saw that.I apologize, and I'm sorry".

In response to the video, Twitch CEO Emmett Shear said that the porn displayed on his offline channel "grossly violates" the site's terms of service.

"We have also suspended these recommendations while we investigate how this content came to be promoted". "It wasn't our intent, but it should not have happened".

Ninja was brought onto Mixer in a bid to take a bigger slice of the ever-growing video game streaming business, which is largely led by Twitch.

Twitch says that the launch of Twitch Studio is in an effort to open up streaming and give new streamers an easier experience of getting started.
