Twitch streamers plan protest Wednesday over harassment on the site

What's the news?

#ADayOffTwitch is a one-day strike of the streaming platform by streamers, set for Wednesday. Their grievance with the company is what they see as its inaction when it comes to stopping "hate raids" and other forms of harassment. Twitch says it supports a #ADayOffTwitch and the streamers participating in the protest.
