Matt Gaetz, an American lawyer and Florida representative, announced his intention to add Twitch to his growing list of streaming services. The controversial representatives announcement was quickly met with outrage, with many established streamers defying Gaetz.
Gaetz is an extremely contested US politician who has made numerous controversial statements and investigations regarding his political career.
Gaetz has wore a full hazmat suit in recent years in order to ridicule COVID-19 mask regulations, likened BLM protestors to terrorists, and was recently investigated for alleged sexual relations with a minor.
Since he was elected in 2017, the Republican congressman has regularly streamed political content discussing his particular world view and opinions on current American politics. On Twitter, Gaetz announced that he would add Twitch to his extensive social media platforms.
On the platform, this is certainly what we needed. https://t.co/acKSMkprHs
Under the banner of his weekly program dubbed Firebrand, the Republican congressman has regularly streamed political material discussing his views on contemporary American politics. On Twitter, Gaetz announced that he would be adding Twitch to his wide array of popular and lesser-known social media platforms, including Rumble, GETTR, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. Gaetz has recently created an unidentified Twitch account.
Both constituents and streamers on Twitch have already begun to refute the congressman's entry on Twitch.
Hasan Piker, a popular political streamer and Twitch creator, replied to Gaetz's announcement, stating that this is certainly what we needed on the platform shortly before changing his username to Gaetz' pedo FBI investigation.
ConnorEatsPants, one of the few streamers, shared a recent Bloomberg report that noted child predators targeting minors on Twitch, saying I discovered one.
Gaetz will likely not get a warm reception for his first Twitch stream, but the politician appears to be ready to include Twitch into his regular media rotation.
