Twitch to take further steps to stop harassment on the platform

Published

The Twitch team summarized all the tools released in 2021 to stop harassment and abuse on the platform.

And of course, he also anticipated the measures that will be implemented during 2022 for the safety of users.

New Twitch Measures to Curb Harassment and Abuse

Twitch implemented a number of tools and policies in 2021 to curb bullying, but as Angela Hession, vice president of global security and trust at Twitch, acknowledges, the past year has been marked by unprecedented attacks against streamers on the platform.

And while the measures taken have not been enough to eradicate harassment and abuse, they have managed to stop some attacks and eliminate more than 15 million bot accounts that were used to generate spam and harass users.

We may never be able to remove them entirely, but several updates this year, including site-wide back-end technology and Creator tools like phone verified chat, have significantly reduced their number.

And to improve results in 2022, he mentioned that they will focus on empowering communities, giving more control over content, deterring harmful behaviors and improving safety education.

We continue to work on proactive detection updates throughout the site, as well as taking legal action against the people who carried out many of the attacks.

And to meet these goals, some of the measures that Twitch plans to implement this year are to update its sexual content policy, provide more educational content in its Safety Center, improve the user reporting and appeals system, and other news. So creators can take advantage of its artificial intelligence tool to detect suspicious users.

The Twitch team promises that we will see many updates this year in order to meet these goals and keep users safe.

Apple may start using E Ink screens in its devices. Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo spoke about this.

Apple wants to use E Ink screens in the iPhone and iPad.  The company is testing similar displays as auxiliary displays for flexible models.

Apple is testing an E Ink display for future foldable devices. The E Ink color display can be the go-to solution for foldable devices that need a cover or second screen due to its excellent power savings

Kuo says that Apple considers such screens as additional ones. For example, it can be a small secondary screen on a foldable iPhone or a screen on an iPad case.

E Ink screens only consume energy to change the image, so they are great for such tasks. We have already seen smartphones with such screens, so there is nothing new for the market.

When such devices can enter the market is not yet clear, but Apple may not release the first foldable smartphones until 2025, according to the same analyst.

A new era in the Windows mobile game console market

With the release of Ryzen 6000 mobile processors, equipped with very powerful iGPUs, a new era of Windows handheld game consoles is dawning.

The Aya Neo 2 console with Ryzen 7 6800U was unveiled yesterday, and now GPD has boasted that it has already acquired a batch of the same APUs, so GPD Win Max 2 test models based on this platform should be ready by June. Judging by the entry, the company did not expect that it would be able to get the processors so quickly.

GPD Win Max 2 was introduced back in March, but with a Core i7-1280P processor, but its graphics subsystem is no match for the iGPU in the Ryzen 7 6800U.

As a result, before the end of the year, at least two more portable set-top boxes with Windows that can handle modern games should appear on the market. True, apparently, in both cases we are talking about a Full HD screen, which creates an additional load on the GPU. For the same Steam Deck, the resolution is HD.
