Twitch has released the first Transparency Report of what is set to be many, with the streaming company promising to release the reports twice a year. The report gives a top-down look at Twitch’s safety and moderation systems, before looking into more granular data about enforcement on Twitch.
The report breaks safety into multiple tiers, with the broadest level being Twitch’s community guidelines, followed by site-wide moderation, then channel-specific moderation, then the small suite of safety tools that are given to viewers.
The role of channel mods and creators is emphasized in the site’s overall plan, and Twitch brags that 95% of channels now have either human moderators or AutoMod enabled–up from 93% in the first half of last year. It also shows an increase in messages being deleted, with the number per 1000 messages up from 3.2 to 4.
