In the wake of numerous allegations of sexual assault and harassment in the videogame industry, Twitch has announced that it is reviewing cases related to streamers as quickly as possible, with a priority on “the most severe cases,” and will begin issuing permanent suspensions immediately where warranted.

“In many of the cases, the alleged incident took place off Twitch, and we need more information to make a determination. In some cases we will need to report the case to the proper authorities who are better placed to conduct a more thorough investigation,” Twitch said in a statement. It also committed to ensuring “appropriate due diligence” in its investigations.
