Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Twitch is very friendly and my child says watching his favorite streamer, poki, makes his day.

Twitch is very appropriate and I think if parents monitor they’re children it will be just fine

Horrible, its easy to use but its horrible

it deactivates accounts and the e-mail used in that account can't no longer be used for future new accounts, even if you have twitch prime the ads on streams wont be removed
