Twitch suspends Trump account over footage with ‘hateful conduct’

Twitch, the Amazon-owned livestreaming site, announced Monday it would temporarily suspend President Trump’s official account on the site, citing “hateful conduct” in footage from Trump’s campaign rallies.

Trump launched his Twitch account a year ago.

Reddit announced that it was banning several subreddits supportive of Trump and the alleged far-right over hate speech.
