Twitch Pulls Shooting Vid Quickly, But Facebook And Streamable Reuploads Reached Millions

Amazon-owned streaming platform Twitch said it removed a livestream of a mass shooting in Buffalo, New York over the weekend within two minutes of it going live. But that response time was not enough to stop recordings of the footage from spreading to other online platforms, like Facebook, where links to the heinous act remained accessible for hours. This once again raises questions about how much social media companies are really invested in moderating harmful content.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is the most watched game on Twitch in 2021

The statistic shows the massive tail that the game has. Kotaku reports that according to the latest year in review report from stream tools company StreamElements, Grand Theft Auto 5 is the most watched game on Twitch, dominating a chart full of games that have solidly lodged themselves at the top for multiple years running. It might sound slightly surprising that a game that’s eight years old is still topping the Twitch charts, but that’s because Twitch doesn’t differentiate between Grand Theft Auto 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online, the source of the former’s extremely long tail and a seemingly…
