    This policy discriminates against poor streamers, who have to deal with phone disconnections on a regular basis. I've been streaming for over 3 years, but can't stream this week because on OBS update required me to sign into Twitch. Signing into Twitch requires that a code be sent to my disconnected phone. I'm logged into my Twitch account on several browser windows. But if my computers are turned off, I'll even lose that. As a web developer, I appreciate 2FA as a smart security practice, but your policies offer no options.

    Hi, thanks for flagging this and sharing your suggestion.

    We share and understand your concerns about how the intentional, repeated misuse of tags can undermine the purpose of the tags product itself.  Tags are an important discoverability feature for communities, and a powerful way for all Creators—but especially those that are underrepresented—to express their personal identity and creative vision for their content.

    We also do not feel Twitch should be the judge of Creators’ personal or creative identity, so we typically only enforce against the misuse of tags when it is associated with other behavior that violates our Community Guidelines such as hateful conduct or harassment.

    That said, as the VTuber community’s experience demonstrates, there are limitations to this approach and we are actively investigating additional steps we can take to protect and improve the integrity of the tags feature at scale, without infringing on good faith Creators’ personal choice…
