Twitter Calls for Action Against Twitch Moderator


Following the establishment of the Safety Advisory Council, comments made by FerociouslySteph has caused an uproar in the Twitch community. Earlier the streamer called for the removal of voice-chat, calling it unfair. Her follow-up comments on the backlash for that, ironically, caused a further uproar. The saga continued today as she made further comments today that led many users on twitter calling Twitch to take action against her.

Popular WoW Twitch streamer, Asmongold, had called her out following the comments on voice-chat and “cis-white men.”

“It’s ridiculous and at the same time this person can say negative things about white people and it’s fine, If I said that about black people or trans people I would be banned.”

Twitter calls on twitch to take action

In her bid to silence those who were attacking her online, FerociouslySteph said something that brought on more hate. While her thoughts may not have been wrong, her choice of words sparked some serious anger. Popular YouTuber and streamer, Daniel “Keemstar” Keem tweeted out the clip that quickly garnered a ton of attention.

in the clip from her broadcast, the newly appointed moderator for Twitch warns certain people. Check out the clip for yourself.

Gauging from the reaction, the use of phrases like “I have power” and “some people should be afraid of me” has rubbed many the wrong way. While many commented with just personal attacks on her, some were eager to point out the actual issues.

100T content creator, Froste too posted a clip of the same. According to Froste, the FerociouslySTeph has a God complex and hence, should not really be in a position of power. The debate on 100T Froste’s twitter feed was much more constructive.

There is little doubt the new moderator for Twitch has upset many users for her opinion on voice-chat. Unfortunately, many of them attacked her on a personal level, causing her to lash out as well. And the whole episode has taken a complicated turn now. While her indignation is understandable, her choice of words not so much.

An unfortunate chain of events if you think about it.

Let’s wait and watch what Twitch decides to do about the whole mess or if they’re happy to let it be.

Where do you stand on the issue? Who do you believe is in the right here?

Long Instagram Post Glitch for Photos Fixed: Here’s How It Worked

If you’ve been on Instagram today, you might see people taking advantage of a new glitch that lets them post really long Instagram photos. Here’s how the glitch worked and why you’re seeing photos that scroll endlessly on your Instagram feed. Unfortunately, it appears that the glitch was fixed and you’re not going to be able to create your own long photo at this time.

The glitch allowed people to post really long photos to Instagram — photos that appear to scroll forever. Unfortunately, the glitch appears to have now been fixed. Heavy tried creating the glitch and got an error message that read: “Something went wrong. Please try again later.” Others get a server error message or a message telling them that they need a better connection.

The glitch was only spotted on iOS and Android seemed to continue to work just fine, The Verge reported. To get the glitch and post your own long photo, you simply had to create your own very long image, open Instagram, and pick the photo through the app. The app was temporarily not cropping the photos and allowing people to post long pictures. However, if your photo was too long, then it wouldn’t work or it would show up black. Others appeared pixelated.

Some people were able to access the glitch by putting any image into a resizing program like simpleimageresizer.com, making it 30×600 or smaller, and then posting it, one Redditor shared. They could also create the glitch by changing the size of a photo in Photoshop to be 30×600 pixels. Others said it’s easier to just search for super long photos and use one that you find. Others used the “Do You Love the Colour of the Sky” photo and uploaded that long photo.

Unfortunately, none of the methods used to access the glitch appear to work anymore. The glitch has seemingly been fixed and people are getting server errors when they try to post long images and join in on the fun. Others are just seeing a black photo when they try to upload a long photo and access the glitch.

Some people are pretty annoyed that Instagram fixed the glitch so quickly. One person wrote on Reddit: “So you’re telling me Insta is willing to patch this harmless glitch that’s funny and fun to mess with, but WON’T patch mine AND my friend’s DM’s breaking just because we leave a groupchat, and they won’t delete a post with obvious porn or gore, and they won’t give every account new features at the same time, but THIS gets patched almost immediately? Why are the serious issues not being fixed but the small things that are fun to mess with are?”

Here’s what the long photos look like:

How To Get Your Valorant Beta Key From Twitch Stream Drops Still waiting on a Valorant beta key drop from streams? Make sure your Twitch is setup properly for drops and more with this guide.

By Eddie Makuch and Chloi Rad

The Valorant closed beta has been active for weeks now, but there are still plenty of people who haven’t gotten their beta key yet. Record-breaking Twitch viewership numbers would suggest that the beta, which requires you to watch Twitch streams to get access to, is still in very high demand. If you’re still waiting for your Valorant beta key, make sure you’re following the instructions below properly to maximize your chances of getting in. Valorant has finally launched its ranked competitive mode after Riot mentioned it in its update 0.49 patch notes, so now is a good time to try to get in–you can learn more about how Valorant’s ranked system works in our guide.

How To Get A Valorant Beta Key From Twitch Stream Drops

To get a Valorant beta key, you will need a Riot account, but you also need to sign up for Twitch. You must also be located in one of the regions listed later in this section. Follow the step-by-step instructions below to become eligible for a Valorant beta invite.

Now Playing: How To Get Good At Valorant Without Playing It

  1. Register for a Riot account
  2. Sign up for Twitch
  3. Link your Riot and Twitch accounts and make sure drops are enabled
  4. Watch Valorant streams on Twitch

During the second week of beta, Riot expanded which streams can actually drop beta invites. Originally, only Twitch streamers specially selected by Riot to drop invites could do so, meaning you could only watch specific streams to get access. But now all Twitch streamers with access to the closed beta are able to drop beta invites for their viewers, as long as they are streaming Valorant. This doesn’t increase the number of invites going out, but it does widen your options for getting into the beta. It should be harder to game the system than it was initially, as, well, as Twitch updated its guidelines to prevent people from running VOD 24/7 sessions to farm the keys.

This initial beta will be limited to players in the United States, Europe, Canada, Russia, Turkey, and CIS countries. More regions could be supported later, but Riot said this is “pending developments with the current COVID-19 pandemic.” You can find more information in the announcement post on Valorant’s official website.

How Long Do I Need To Watch Valorant Streams To Get A Beta Key?

According to Riot, you need to watch roughly 2 hours of Valorant streams in order to be eligible for a closed beta invite. A higher “weight” is given to viewers with more hours of Valorant streams clocked, which means your chances of getting an invite should be increased, but–as Riot states–“it’s still not guaranteed.” Riot has also provided more details about how closed beta entitlements work on a technical level to address some fans’ concerns. It’s also begun the process of manually rewarding “the most engaged Valorant stream viewers” with beta invites, as a thank you to fans.

Will Watching More Valorant Streams Increase My Chances Of Getting A Drop?

Riot has clarified how closed beta entitlements for Valorant work, as many people have been watching Twitch streams with no sign of an invite. You can read more about it in Riot’s blog post, but according to Riot, Valorant beta invites work differently than regular drops on Twitch. Among the points they’ve clarified, Riot states that a certain percentage of people who are eligible for an invite are given Valorant closed beta access “throughout the day and night,” except during server outages, when invites are paused. The selection is always random, and while watching more hours of Valorant streams will increase your chances of getting an invite, there is no guarantee you’ll get one.

According to Riot, you don’t need to have Twitch running to receive a drop. Once you’ve met the viewing requirement of 2 hours or more, you will be eligible for an invite during Riot’s next “wave of entitlements.”

Valorant Beta Updates And Patch Notes

Valorant has received steady and consistent updates in its still relatively fresh beta stage. One of its earliest updates nerfed Raze and Sage and its latest patch, update 0.49, added competitive mode and ranked matchmaking–they aren’t live yet, but they will be “in the near future.” Omen also got some gameplay adjustments and a redesign, alongside Breach.

Read full patch notes for several Valorant beta updates below.

Valorant Beta Minimum And Recommended System Specs

To see if your PC can even run Valorant, check out the minimum and recommended Valorant system requirements.

Will Valorant Closed Beta Progress Carry Over To The Final Game?

According to Riot, progress you make in the closed beta for Valorant will not carry over to the final game, as its “current gameplay state may very well change come launch.” While gameplay progress won’t be saved, you will retain all Valorant Points you purchase during the closed beta, plus a 20% bonus as a thank you from Riot, when the game launches.

How Long Is The Valorant Beta?

According to Riot, the Valorant closed beta will be “short,” but it’s willing to reconsider based on player feedback. On beta launch day, Valorant broke a Twitch record for single-day viewership numbers, so it is certainly popular, with a large volume of players trying to access the beta even weeks later.

When Does Valorant Launch?

Riot Games hopes to launch Valorant in “Summer 2020,” but has not given a more specific release date.

Vanessa Bryant starts Instagram challenge in honor of Gianna’s 14th birthday

Vanessa Bryant also announced a new way that fans can support the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation.

By Christian Rivas

Friday, May 1, would have been Gianna Bryant’s 14th birthday. Gianna, the second oldest daughter of the four daughters Kobe and Vanessa Bryant had together, had dreams of playing for the University of Connecticut’s illustrious basketball program and, shortly after, the WNBA.

Unfortunately, Gianna, Kobe and seven other people — including two of her basketball teammates — were tragically killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas on Jan. 26. Gianni is survived by her mother, Vanessa, and her three sisters, Natalia, Bianka and Capri.

In honor of what would have been Gianna’s 14th birthday, Vanessa started an Instagram challenge on Friday.

“Gianna loved to wear a red bow in all of her school pictures. Red means love and life. To commemorate Gigi’s birthday today, please consider wearing red, caption an act of kindness or show how you will play Gigi’s way since she always gave everything she did her all and led with kindness. Please use the hashtag #PlayGigisWay,” Vanessa said in her Instagram post.

Vanessa also announced that the bracelets will be sold to benefit the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation. A few of them Bryant family’s famous friends, , including Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Kelly Clarkson, and Ciara, got their hands (or wrists) on the bracelets earlier than everyone else to help spread the word on Friday.

Kobe’s former teammate, Pau Gasol, and Gasol’s wife, Cat, showed their support for the Bryant family by sending them a cake for Gigi’s 14th birthday. Pau and Cat also sent Vanessa flowers for Kobe and Vanessa’s wedding anniversary, because he’s the best.

It’s hard to fathom what the Bryant family is going through today, so kind gestures from friends and strangers alike are appreciated. If you would like to participate in Vanessa’ Instagram challenge, all you have to do is:

  1. Post a picture of you wearing red
  2. Write an act of kindness you’ve done in the caption

It’s simple enough, and it would mean a lot to the Bryant family.

Twitch Streamer Gets Banned and Blames It on Alinity NSFW

Twitch streamer Fedmyster gets banned for showing nude content in a stream, but he says that it’s all because of Alinity.

Jasmine Henry @jasminetwts

Twitch is facing backlash for their inconsistent bans.
  • Twitch streamer Fedmyster gets suspended from the site but blames it on Alinity’s NSFW mistake.
  • Alinity was banned from the site last month after an accidental nip slip while playing Just Dance.
  • Some have suggested that this shows that Twitch’s new nudity policy isn’t working.

Fans of Twitch streamer Fedmyster were shocked this week when he tweeted that he’d been suspended from the site. His Fedmyster2 account, a secondary account to his main Fedmyster, was suspended for three days for “sharing content featuring nudity.”

The streamer said that the ban was because he’d been on Twitter when someone posted a photo of Alinity’s bare nipples from her NSFW accident last week.

Fedmyster’s Ban Sparks Outrage

Fans were furious about the ban and began to tweet the Twitch Support account, asking for the site to review it. Many didn’t understand why Fedmyster had been suspended for longer than Alinity.

Alinity did decide to self-impose a three-day suspension. However, officially, she’d only been suspended from Twitch for 24 hours.

Twitch Makes It Right In The End

This story has a positive turn as just hours later, Fedmyster confirmed that Twitch had reversed its decision. “Twitch has gone ahead and unbanned me,” tweeted the streamer, and this allowed him to stream from all of his accounts again.

While some fans were unhappy with how Twitch reacted, it does show that their new nudity policy is working. The policy will look at things closely, not just banning anyone for showing the smallest bit of skin. The quick reversal of Fedmyster’s ban means that while Twitch may not always get it right, it’s getting much better at fixing things.
