Twitch is getting with the times or just trying it’s best to be P.C.
We’ve made the decision to remove the PogChamp emote following statements from the face of the emote encouraging further violence after what took place in the Capitol today.— Twitch (@Twitch) January 7, 2021
I’d also like to ask @Twitch to put more people in charge of moderating the chat tomorrow. This rotating PogChamp cycle has resulted in a lot of pain for some creators and having to rehash that will be rough.— Ashley Snowboto ❄️✧・ﾟ (@AshleyRoboto) February 11, 2021
The chat tomorrow will be wild I’m sure, please please moderate it.
During one of the twitches’ random Pogs, Twitch also added an African American streamer Techniq during Black History Month as Emote. The joy of having an Emote even made the streamer cry.
Never in a million years would I ever think that I would be a face of twitch. I have been blushing all the day and my tears are getting harder to hold back. Thank you for liking my PogChamp and thank you @Twitch for thinking of me with this Honor.— Techniq | Frank (@TechniqTV) February 8, 2021
Friends of mine, I love you so. pic.twitter.com/6GO8V7rewH
And some were just lost in the mix about the whole Twitch Pogchamp Emote hoo-ha
I’m a small streamer and I don’t know what PogChamp is, can somebody please bring me up to speed?— #esportscollective (@CoachCasper824) February 12, 2021
