Twitch CEO Emmett Shear Says “Still Work to Be Done” To Make Platforms Safer in Wake of Buffalo Shooting


Twitch CEO Emmett Shear has commented on the Buffalo Shooting that took place last week killing 10 people and injuring 3 others, saying that there is “still work to be done” to make streaming platforms, such as Twitch, safer moving forward.

The racially motivated attack was live-streamed and coordinated using a number of platforms, with the shooting being broadcasted live on the Amazon owned Twitch platform. Twitch removed the stream less than two hours after it started, but not soon enough.

“It’s obviously a horrific hate crime” Shear said, during an interview with Harvard Business Review. “And that kind of violence, that kind of hate, white supremacy, racism, don’t have any place, I mean, really anywhere in our society, or especially on Twitch. And we’re working, of course, with law enforcement and taking every action we can find to respond to the tragedy. And we’re going to continue to invest heavily in ensuring the safety of everyone on Twitch. I think this is an example of one of those places where we’ve done a lot of work, but there’s obviously still work to be done.”
