Twitch partner Dr. Disrespect is also contemplating making the switch too, meaning we could potentially see Twitch's title as the "leading live streaming video service for video games in the US", dwindle. "I'm trying to get the whole channel taken down to begin with, or at least not promote other streamers on my brand, on my frigging profile". Ninja expressed his disgust and regret for what had happened on his inactive account in a video posted to Twitter.
Twitch replaced the content on the page - which has 14.7 million followers - to show a list of other streamers after he left the platform for Mixer this month.
A report which, she says, is sustained by one of the founder's saying "RIP" with a winky emoji when retweeting the video of Ninja leaving Twitch for Mixer on August 2, 2019. Then, it inadvertently promoted porn on the channel he left behind.
"I have no say in any of this stuff", he said. Twitch CEO Emmett Shear responded to the controversy and apologised to Ninja on Twitter yesterday. "They don't do this for anyone else that's offline by the way, just me, and there are also other streamers who have signed with other platforms whose channel still remains the same".

Both issues were marked as being corrected. "I will make sure that they are turned closed when not in use". It is understood the fire started in the living room on the ground floor before it quickly spread.
"To help ensure they find great live channels we've been experimenting with showing recommended content across Twitch, including on streamer's pages that are offline", Mr Shear said.
Cheng Cheng, Twitch's director of product management for the creator experience said: "We've been listening to our users give us feedback, talk about their experience, how they started streaming, how they progress".
At a time when Mixer has never looked more competitive, Twitch does not need the bad publicity that's come from this incident. However, the lewd content that appeared on Ninja's offline channel page grossly violates our terms of service, and we've permanently suspended the account in question.
"For anyone who saw that, for anyone whose kids, or didn't obviously want to see that, I apologize and I'm sorry", he concluded.
