The problem arose because, instead of leaving his account dormant as it should while he now exclusively streams on Mixer and is the norm, Twitch co-opted his account and used it to stream and promote other channels on the service. It was an unprecedented move, due to Ninja's high profile and prolific success as the top Fortnite streamer on Twitch, and that Mixer is a modest contender among the live stream platform competitors.

This morning, a channel showing porn was one of the most-watched streams on the platform, attracting thousands of viewers before it was shut down by Twitch. Ninja expressed his disgust and regret for what had happened on his inactive account in a video posted to Twitter.

Ninja rose to fame among the gaming community for online broadcasts while playing Fortnite and other video games on Twitch and YouTube, as well as hosting games alongside the likes of rappers Drake and Travis Scott. The stream made it onto the list of recommendations on Ninja's channel, as shown in this image.

"We have also suspended these recommendations while we investigate how this content came to be promoted". IGN has not been able to verify what "porn account" Ninja is referring to, but his Twitch page is in fact now promoting 30 other streamers, which appears to be fluctuating depending on what the top Fortnite streams are at the moment. "It wasn't our intent, but it should not have happened". After having built a brand for eight years, Ninja feels that Twitch is promoting other streamers piggybacking on his brand while he doesn't have any say in the matter.

Live streaming platform Twitch has announced the launch of Twitch Studio, its first broadcasting software. Twitch started using his channel to promote other channels from the community.

"I have no say in any of this stuff", he said, later adding: "For anyone who saw that, for anyone whose kids - or who just didn't obviously wanna see that - I apologise and I'm sorry". Twitch also states that "sexually suggestive" content is prohibited.
