Bigot test for partners
Bigot test for partners.
Dear Twitch, every Partner should answer a 30 question test to make sure they aren't a bigoted piece of *.
I know you like money, Twitch. So I won't suggest that you don't partner them, you little hoe you.
But give Partners that pass the test an extra checkmark to tell users that this particular Streamer isn't an ****. Thank you.
It is such a dread to invest time and money into someone only to then find out that they are human trash.
The checkmark will prohibit that.
This test will be part of the partner application process. Furthermore will previous bans (and their nature) be relevant for getting the checkmark.
Do it for already partnered streamers as well. A mandatory quiz. If you don't fill it out, you don't get to stream.
There is a 30 day period in which you are able to submit your test.
If you pass the test, you get an extra checkmark that shows that the streamer has morals and compassion.
If you don't pass the test, you still get to stream, but people will wonder what questions you answered wrong.
This will not only be good for viewers, also for Twitch itself. Since Partners are Brand ambassadors.
The checkmark will be called "Ambassador".
As a by-product it will also increase the pressure on Streamers who think it is okay to be homophobic, transphobic, racist, sexist...
Viewers will also have the option to report streamers for violations of those topics.
Partners who pass the test will also get prioritised sponsorship opportunities, Front page slots, social media boosts, and an increase in their subscription share payout.
You wanna improve your image, Twitch? Do something for it.
As with all Twitch updates, this will be rolled out for affiliates as well at a later point.
Kids, that is how we built the first echo chamber.
