Twitch Users Are Boycotting Over Attacks Targeting Black, Queer And Disabled People

NPR could not independently verify specific details about the data breach, but according to the website Video Games Chronicle, an anonymous hacker posted 125 gigabytes worth of Twitch data to the online chat forum 4chan. The data released reportedly includes the source code for the site, details of creator payouts and names of the company’s clients.

Twitch was created in 2011. Amazon purchased the company in 2014.
